missed closing in 2 cases due to lack of time.?chances? the rest 10 cases went very well

buffy-they consider mainly 10 cases 2 r not taken in consideration hopefully those 2 be the one that's not considered on exam .If yes also then only closing error wont fail you .I can't say for sure but if u r confident in other 10--then u r pass from my side.

buffy--donot have to include all your points. this is little tricky.they want u to show confidence and not knowledge--if you show ur knowledge it will take more time . For CNS no upper limb reflexes necessary...by this I mean, lower limb reflexes hold better credit than upper.

hey sitara:


Question to ask for MMSE

Always start with --these questions might sound little odd but I need to know the answer,are you willing to help me in that?

1)
Can you see that clearly? if you can see can you tell me its name?------
2) 3 step command: Can you hold this pen in your left hand ,then on the right and give it back to me?
3)What would you do if you see your house on fire? --judgement
4) Can you tell me where you are right now? what time of the day is now? With whom you came here today?
5) What did you have in your breakfast?--recent memory
Do you know what happened in sept 11?--remote memory



Make a pattern of question and follow it .Perform every time you practice so you will not find the questions that difficult to ask.


plsprayforme: I am praying for you-- G luck
