This article is an exam-oriented discussion for medical students.
This is a flowchart showing only the salient points to remember during performing a systemic examination of the respiratory system.
Please Note: I only presented the systemic examination part. General examination should also be included when doing a complete physical examination. I shall later post another article on the general examination. Actually the general examination part is almost similar for all organ systems (for the exam of course), so it would be better to write a separate article on it rather than repeating for all organ systems.
