how do we test CN I smell soap, coffee, etc.
how do we test CN II controls central & peripheral vision ---have them read or count # of fingers being held up---peripheral vision test
peripheral vision tests for what CN CN II optic
how do we test CN III pupilary response to light
When we do PERRLA, what CNs are we testing? CN III pupilary response---CN IV accomodation test
how do we test CN IV accomodation test to check down/medial EOM
When we check for ptosis, what CN CN III by checking where eyelid falls on pupil
If a pt has a problem with CN V, where would it show up? on their forehead---cheek---jaw
To test sensory fx of CN V, what would you do check their scalp, forehead, cheek and jaw for sensations
to test motor fx of CN V, what would you do test motor function of temporal & masseter muscles by assessing jaw opening strength
if I suspect a problem with CN VI and VII, what should I do check corneal reflex with cotton wisp
how do I test CN VI EOM lateral tested by 6 cardinal fields of gaze
how do I test CN VIII for hearing aspect rub my fingers together next to pt ear
