Basic ENT-HNS physical examination

  1. 1. EARS, NOSE & THROAT HEAD & NECK Relearning the basic history taking & physical examination Frederick Mars Untalan, MD
  2. 2. OUTLINE Know what to ask Know what to see Common ENT diseases
  3. 3. REMEMBER. . . . . . a thorough assessment begins with the HISTORY!
  4. 4. HISTORY of PRESENT ILLNESS (HPI or Symptom Analysis) Location and Radiation Timing: Onset, Frequency & Duration Quality and/or Characteristics Quantity and/or Severity Setting and/or Situation Aggravating Factors Alleviating Factors Associated Factors/Manifestations Underlying Concern and/or Perception
  5. 5. EQUIPMENT NEEDED Latex Gloves Light Source Cotton Cup with water (optional) Measuring tape (possible)
  6. 6. GENERAL CONSIDERATIONS The head and neck exam is not fixed in sequence. Different parts of the exam may be included and/or excluded depending on the history and the purpose of the exam.
  7. 7. PhysicalDiagnosisinOtolaryngology
  8. 8. Health History Determine presence/absence of age- and gender-specific diseases of the head and neck Common chief complaints  Neck pain or stiff neck  Hoarseness; nasal discharge or obstruction  Neck mass  Headache or facial pain  Head injury ; otalgia; dysphagia; ear discharge
  9. 9. General Approach to Head and Neck Assessment Greet patient, explain assessment techniques Environment  Quiet  Warm  Private  Adequate lighting  Upright sitting position Compare right and left sides Systematic approach
  10. 10. Where the Head Ends and NeckBegins  Plane between the external occipital protuberance and inferior surface of the mandible  Neck  Anterior triangle is bordered by Mandible (above), Cervical midline(laterally) and Sternomastoid (anteriorly
  11. 11. Where the Head Ends and NeckBegins Neck – Posterior triangle is bordered by Clavicle (below), trapezius (posteriorly) and Sternomastoid (anteriorly)
  12. 12. Special Bony Areas External Occipial Protuberance (notch in occipital area Mastoid Process (behind Ear) Zygomatic Arch (Cheekbone) Orbit (eye socket) Maxilla (upper jaw) Mandible (lower Jaw)
  13. 13. Assessment of the Face  Inspection  Shape Normal findings  Symmetry – Symmetrical features INSPECT – Palpebral fissures Size, shape, and symmetry. equal Note placement of features , – Nasolabial folds expression, movements and present bilaterally Skin characteristics. – Shape can be oval, PALPATE round, or slightly Facial bones square
  14. 14. ABNORMALS
  15. 15. Assessment of the Face Abnormal findings  Deformed or absent structures  Asymmetry  More or less pronounced facial features  Diseases which may alter facial features: Bell’s palsy, Down syndrome, Graves’ disease, Myxedema, Cachexia, Cushing’s syndrome
  16. 16. Replacement of Nonfunctional FacialMuscles  Microneurovascular free muscle transfer
  17. 17. Mandible Palpate and auscultate the TMJ when the client opens and closes the mouth Normal findings  No discomfort, joint articulates smoothly without clicking or crepitus Abnormal findings  Pain, tenderness, crepitus, clicking, or snapping sound
  18. 18. TEMPORMANDIBULAR JOINT (TMJ)Located anterior to tragus,bilaterallyAssess Abnormals Palpate with  Tenderness, movement crepitus, clicking Auscultate: Bell  Bruit  Pain with trismus
  19. 19. Serous Otitis Media
  20. 20. Tympanic MembranePerforation
  21. 21. Tympanic MembranePerforation
  22. 22. External Auditory Canal Foreign Body
  23. 23. Otitis Externa
  24. 24. Otowick in EAC
  25. 25. Pharynx
  26. 26. Esophagus - mid
  27. 27. Esophagus - distal
  28. 28. Foreign Bodies
  29. 29. Foreign Body Ingestion
  30. 30. Vocal Nodules
  31. 31. Bilateral Singer’s Nodules
  32. 32. Nasal Polyp
  33. 33. Middle Turbinate Adhesions
  34. 34. Middle Meatus-Maxillary Sinus Ostium Normal Purulent Drainage
  35. 35. SINUSES: Frontal & MaxillaryAssess Abnormals Inspect  Swelling Palpate  Tenderness Percuss: Direct  Flatter sound Transilluminatio  Unequal light n: Darkened room
  36. 36. CT Scan - Sinusitis
  37. 37. Allergic Rhinitis
  38. 38. Nasal Septal Perforation
  39. 39. Bony DorsumDeficiency
  40. 40. NasalBoneFracture
  41. 41. Dorsal Deficiency More likely with osteotome rather than sharp rasp Corrected with completion osteotomies or on- lay graft
