Oxford Handbook of Clinical Examination and Practical Skills 2nd Edition The systems chapters In each chapter, there are suggestions as to what questions to ask and how to  proceed depending on the presenting complaint. These are not exhaustive and  are intended as guidance. The history parts of each chapter should be used in  conjunction with Chapter 2 to build a full and thorough history.

Practical procedures This chapter describes those practical procedures that the junior doctor or  senior nurse may be expected to perform. Some should only be performed  once you have been trained specifically in the correct technique by a more
senior colleague.

Reality versus theory In describing the practical procedures, we have tried to be ‘realistic’. The  methods described are the most commonly used across the profession and  are aimed at helping the reader perform the procedure correctly and safely  within a clinical environment.
There may be slight differences, therefore, between the way that a small
number of the procedures are described here and the way that they are
taught in a clinical skills laboratory. In addition, local trusts may use different
equipment for some procedures. The good practitioner should be flexible
and make changes to their routine accordingly.
Data interpretation A minority of the reference ranges described for some of the biochemical  tests in the data interpretation chapter may differ very slightly from those used by your local laboratory—this is dependent on the equipment and techniques used for measurement. Any differences are likely to be very small indeed. If in doubt, check with your local trust.
