What is a medical evaluation?
A medical evaluation involves a physical exam and perhaps some common medical tests to determine a person’s overall state of health. During the medical examination, the healthcare practitioner will look for signs of illness, injury, disease, or other physical conditions. Depending on the findings, other medical tests may also be necessary before making a final conclusion.
What’s involved in a medical evaluation?
Medical evaluations typically begin with a medical history and the recording of details regarding any prescription medications the patient may be taking, previous injuries, illnesses, surgeries, or other medical conditions. In some cases, the patient will be asked about their family medical history, as well.
Next, the vital signs will be measured and recorded as part of the medical checkup. This typically includes recording readings of the patient’s blood pressure, body temperature, and heart rate. The patient will also be asked about the duration, frequency, and severity of any symptoms they may be experiencing.
Last, a physical evaluation will be performed. In most cases, this will include a general overall exam to look for signs of injury or illness. If an illness or injury is suspected, or is the reason for the medical evaluation, the affected area or areas of the body will also be more closely examined to determine the extent. Other tests that may be performed in-house include blood tests, an EKG, and/or digital X-rays.
Why get a medical evaluation?
Many times, medical assessments are necessary in the determination of eligibility for employment purposes, sports participation, or to evaluate a possible work-related injury. For example, if you have sustained a work-related injury, your employer may order a medical examination to determine the seriousness of the injury.
