I have a question about neck exam findings (submandibular)
Fri Jun 1, 2007 15:02

The neck was free of thyromegaly and subcutaneous air.

This is on the physical examination, not on x-ray report. Is subcutaneous air an objective finding?

there's a message inside the above post
that's see message, not submandibular (nm)

Well, I guess he's saying no edema of the neck --

And yes, you can see an edematous neck.

usually I hear that on chest exam (nm)
