Example text

It should be noted that the brief cognitive portion of the mental status examination about to be described is actually part of the neurological examination (see Chapter 26). However, the neurologic examination is not described until the end of this book (as is true of most other textbooks and courses). Because between 10% and 40% of the patients on a medical or surgical service will have an organic brain syndrome at some time during their stay and because such patients will give a very confusing account, it is important that the cognitive portion of the mental status be assessed as soon as possible, if for no other reason than to avoid wasting the physician's time gathering confabulated data.

Thus, the patient must give the correct year (even on January 1), the correct name of the month (not ¡°Christmas¡± month because the patient has noticed the hallway decorations), and the exact correct day of the month (not weekday name), not even missing by a single day. False Positives for Disorientation in Time In addition to normal persons who simply do not attend to the date, there are other patients who commonly do not know the exact date. First, there are very severe schizophrenics. While most schizophrenics are oriented to time, some are either disoriented or so disturbed that they cannot cooperate with the testing.

If poor historian refers to the patient, it would mean that he is an impecunious student of the past, a piece of information that belongs in the social history, not following the statement of reliability (see Chapter 4). In other words, the physician is the historian. What the historian might have meant to say by his phrase poor historian was that the patient has difficulty remembering. Such a memory problem is a biologic event, like fever or tachycardia, and is equally deserving of an explanation.
