Assessment

HEALTH HISTORY AND CLINICAL MANIFESTATIONS

 

A comprehensive allergy history and a thorough physical exami-nation provide useful data for the diagnosis and management of patients with allergic disorders. An assessment form is useful for obtaining and organizing this information (Chart 53-1).


 

The degree of difficulty and discomfort experienced by the pa-tient because of allergic symptoms and the degree of improve-ment in those symptoms with and without treatment are assessed and documented. The relationship of symptoms to exposure to possible allergens is noted.
