In this video by Surgical Utopia, you will learn how oral surgeons perform history taking and diagnosis. It’s crucial to do these steps before treating patients or doing oral surgery because it tells a lot about their medical history.
During history taking, oral surgeons should motivate the patient to describe and explain any symptoms being experienced. The case sheet should include a concise report of the patient’s complaints, with the symptoms organized according to importance.
Listen and pay attention while taking the patient’s medical history. Also, avoid cutting corners and taking shortcuts – you should refrain from rushing things and taking the history too quickly. Give the patient enough time to provide all the correct information because rushed history taking can result in inaccurate and incomplete data.
You should also avoid leading the questions. For example, instead of asking if the pain starts when drinking a hot or cold beverage, ask the patient what causes the pain.
Some of the biographic data you’ll need to collect include the patient’s full name, age, gender, address, phone number, and occupation. Because some medical problems tend to occur in a specific age group, sex, or race, this information may play a significant role in the diagnosis’s accuracy. The patient’s occupation may also be related to a specific disease or influence the required therapy.
