The History and Physical Examination Discussed During Annual Meeting
Date:9/15/2009

BOSTON, Sept. 15 /PRNewswire/ -- The 13th Annual Scientific Meeting of the Heart Failure Society of America (HFSA) today featured a discussion surrounding the Physical Exam, titled "Is the Physical Exam Obsolete?" presented by Dr. Mark H. Drazner, Cardiologist, Internist and Associate Professor at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center. This presentation highlighted the usefulness of the history and physical examination (H&P) when diagnosing patients with chronic heart failure in the modern era. The presentation cautioned the increasing reliance on tests such as biomarkers and imaging over the traditional H&P exam, citing that this exam can provide valuable information in the evaluation and management of heart failure.

"The H&P examination has always been and continues to be an important procedure in medical diagnoses," said Dr. Douglas Mann, HFSA President. "As health care professionals it is crucial that we continue the teaching and practices of careful and thorough bedside care."

"Clinicians should focus on estimates of hemodynamic status from the H&P examination which are directly associated with prognosis in patients with advanced heart failure," said Dr. Drazner during the discussion.

"The H&P exam provides useful information to tell whether a patient has accumulated too much fluid in their body, which is associated with a poorer prognosis. At the same time, the H&P exam has the benefit of being noninvasive, safe, cost-effective, and also strengthens the patient-physician relationship. Clearly, the sometimes neglected H&P exam remains vital in the care of patients with heart failure."
