oropharynx exam word I can't figure out
Sat Jan 7, 2006 17:34

Can someone tell me if this is correct for this sentence on physical exam of oropharynx: her oropharynx is clear without thrush but is very crowded (then sounds like mal petit four or something like mel petit four). What is the correct term here?

Thanks so much, Txczech. So it is Mallampati IV. I am a newbie, and there is so much to learn.
