Sign recognition

  • Sign (medical) [r]: An objective finding on physical examination or diagnostic testing, complementing the subjective symptoms reported by a patient [e]
  • Heart murmur [r]: Heart sounds caused by vibrations resulting from the flow of blood through the heart. [e]
  • Heart sound [r]: Sounds heard over the cardiac region produced by the functioning of the heart. [e]

Neurologic manifestations

  • Agnosia [r]: A perceptual disorder that is the loss of the ability to comprehend the meaning or recognize the importance of various forms of stimulation that cannot be attributed to impairment of a primary sensory modality. [e]
  • Akathisia [r]: A feeling of restlessness associated with increased motor activity, as it may occur as a manifestation of nervous system drug toxicity or other conditions. [e]
  • Anomia [r]: A language dysfunction characterized by the inability to name people and objects that are correctly perceived. [e]
  • Aphasia [r]: A cognitive disorder marked by an impaired ability to comprehend or express language in its written or spoken form. [e]
  • Apraxia [r]: A group of cognitive disorders characterized by the inability to perform previously learned skills that cannot be attributed to deficits of motor or sensory function. [e]
  • Ataxia [r]: Impairment of the ability to perform smoothly coordinated voluntary movements. [e]
  • Dysarthria [r]: Disorders of speech articulation caused by imperfect coordination of pharynx, larynx, tongue, or face muscles. [e]
  • Tremor [r]: Cyclical movement of a body part that can represent either a physiologic process or a manifestation of disease. [e]

Other related topics

  • Medical history taking [r]: A systematic and thorough interview of the patient for symptoms and risk factors of disease or abnormality as well as relevant psychosocial factors that might affect the expression of treatment of disease. [e]
  • Neurologic manifestation [r]: Clinical signs and symptoms caused by nervous system injury or dysfunction. [e]
  • Symptom [r]: A subjective description of an abnormal state, recounted by a patient, which is informative, but different from the objective result of a sign. [e]
