Physical Examination

Knowledge of Western medicine is important to distinguish cases you can handle by yourself from so called red flags. Red flags are cases that need referral to a physician. It is not only in the anamnesis (the medical interview on complaints) where red flags might get clear. Also in physical examination red flags may be found.
