What is Abdominal Examination?

Abdominal Examination :

The physical assessment of the abdomen of a patient by visual examination, auscultation, percussion and palpation. Visual examination of the normally oval shape of the abdominal surface while the patient is supine may reveal abnormal surface features indicative of the effects of disease, surgery, or injury. Underground tumors, fluid accumulation or hypertrophy of the liver or spleen can be observed as an abnormal surface feature. During auscultation, vascular sounds can be detected that provide information about arterial diseases such as aortic aneurysms and bowel sounds that indicate bowel function. During pregnancy, the auscultation can detect fetal heartbeat and blood circulation in the placenta. Percussion helps to recognize the state of the internal organs. Palpation is used to detect sensitive or stiff areas, muscle tone and skin condition as well as shapes and sizes of organs or masses below the surface.
