Assessment of Abdominal Pain in School-Age Children
Zimmermann, Polly Gerber
Journal of School Nursing, v19 n1 p4-10 2003
Pediatric abdominal pain can be a difficult condition to accurately assess for the nurse to determine whether the child's need is for teaching, treating, or transferring. This article describes the process as well as practical tips to be used by the nurse in the school setting. Distinguishing characteristics and findings, including key physical assessments, of some of the most frequent or most important conditions are described. Atypical, but not to be overlooked, causes are also discussed. (Contains 1 table.)
