SOLUTION

Introduction:

The respiratory system is responsible for oxygenating the blood and expelling carbon dioxide from the body. A thorough respiratory exam includes inspection, palpation, percussion, and auscultation of the thorax and lungs. The following write-up details the findings of a respiratory exam. During inspection, the examiner observes the chest wall for any deformities, skin for any scars, and nails for clubbing. In addition, the chest expansion and respiratory rate are noted. In the current examination, the chest wall was free of deformities, and chest expansion was symmetrical with respirations. No use of accessory muscle or diaphragm use was noted. Skin was intact without scars. The respiratory rate was normal, with 20 breaths per minute. Nails did not show any clubbing, and no discoloration or cyanosis was noted on lips or fingers (Tolentino-DelosReyes et al., 2021).
