Instructor’s Resource Manual

An important and frequent responsibility of the medical assistant (MA) is to assist with patient examinations that consist of the following: health history, physical examination, and laboratory and diagnostic tests. The physician uses the results of these examinations to determine the patient’s general state of health, to arrive at a diagnosis and prescribe treatment, and to observe any change in a patient’s illness after treatment has been instituted. For the physical examination, MA is usually responsible for preparing the examining room, preparing the patient, measuring weight and height, positioning and draping, and assisting the physician.
