Clinical study of the patient: questioning

The ability to carefully and kindly ask the patient, to collect his history does not come immediately. If the patient himself is allowed the opportunity to tell the complaints and his history of the disease, then often the doctor receives a stream of incomplete and inaccurate data. Often, patients generally forget about the important facts of their illness, or long argue from such symptoms that do not matter at all, or they tell about events that play a small role for a real disease. It should be understood that a number of patients are embarrassed to tell the doctor the details or even hide some diseases (such as sexually transmitted diseases) or obviously bad habits (alcoholism).

In order to collect the necessary diagnostic data, it is important to ascertain the symptoms and the development of diseases that are analyzed in particular pathology and therapy of internal diseases. In addition, you should be perfectly fluent in the method of questioning the patient.

The study of diagnosis allows you to correctly and systematically obtain data history. First of all, learn general information about the patient - last name, first name, patronymic, age, place of birth and current profession. Age plays an important role in the development of a number of diseases, such as hypertension, atherosclerosis, and it is well known that malignant neoplasms are more common in older people. Data on the patient's profession and social conditions of his residence often help determine the cause and conditions that led to the occurrence of the disease (for example, poisoning, the common cold).

Next, proceed to a systematic and possibly complete questioning of the patient, asking him questions in a certain order.
