A medical history is information gained by a medical practitioner by asking specific questions to the patient, with the aim of obtaining information useful before proceeding to physical examination.
A physical examination is the process by which a medical practitioner examines the body of a patient for any possible signs or symptoms of a medical condition.
Together, the medical history and the physical examination aids in determining the correct diagnosis and devising the treatment plan. This data then becomes part of the medical record.
Medical diagnosis is the process of determining which disease or condition explains a person's symptoms and signs. It is most often referred to as diagnosis with the medical context being implicit.
The information required for diagnosis is typically collected from a history and physical examination of the person seeking medical care. Often, one or more diagnostic procedures, such as medical tests, are also done during the process.
The terms medical record or health record are used somewhat interchangeably to describe the systematic documentation of a single patient's medical report.
The medical record includes a variety of types of "notes" entered over time by health care professionals, recording observations and administration of drugs and therapies, orders for the administration of drugs and therapies, test results, x-rays, reports, etc.
An X-ray is a common imaging test that's been used for decades. It can help your doctor view the inside of your body without having to make an incision. This can help them diagnose, monitor, and treat many medical conditions.
A blood test is a laboratory analysis performed on a blood sample that is usually extracted from a vein in the arm. Multiple blood tests available are:
Full blood count
Blood group and rhesus
Kidney function test
Liver function test
Fasting blood sugar
Fasting serum lipid
Serum uric acid
A urine test or urinalysis is a group of physical, chemical, and microscopic tests. The tests detect and/or measure several substances in the urine, such as by-products of normal and abnormal metabolism, cells, cellular fragments, and bacteria.
Urine screens are the most common method of drug testing. They are painless, easy, quick, and cost-effective. They can also check for both illegal and prescription drugs.
The person provides a urine sample, and a doctor or technician analyzes it.
The analysis can determine whether a person has used specific drugs in the past few days or weeks, even after the effects of the drugs have worn off.
Audiometry is a branch of audiology and the science of measuring hearing acuity for variations in sound intensity and pitch and for tonal purity, involving thresholds and differing frequencies.
This examination is to test the function of your lungs. If you are having cough or feeling unwell, it is best for you to get treatment first before performing this check up.
Electrocardiography is the process of producing an electrocardiogram, a recording a graph of voltage versus time of the electrical activity of the heart using electrodes placed on the skin.
