Tympanic Membrane and Thyroid Gland

Using the classroom resources or Online Library,  research the tympanic membrane and the thyroid gland. In a Microsoft  Word document of 4-5 pages formatted in APA style, address each of the  following criteria.

  • Two focused health assessment histories 
    • One assessment related to the tympanic membrane and the other focused on the thyroid gland.
    • The assessments can be hypothetical patients or patients you have  had in the past (remember HIPAA if you are describing a previous  patient).
  • A description of the normal and abnormal findings of the tympanic membrane.
  • Information on how to examine the thyroid gland using both the anterior and posterior methods.
  • A concise note in the subjective, objective, assessment (be sure to  include the NANDA diagnosis as well as the medical diagnosis), and plan  (SOAP) format with each patient’s encountered findings.
  • Information about laboratory/diagnostic tests used for screening clients with tympanic membrane or thyroid gland issues. 
    • Include the expected normal results for each test.

On a separate references page, cite all sources using APA format. Please note that the title and reference pages should not be included in the total page count of your paper.
