Please role play with a volunteer family member or friend to complete this Assignment. You will focus on a respiratory disorder and gather data to complete an episodic SOAP note. You will include evidence-based practice guidelines in the management plan, and include rationales for differential diagnoses (cite source). Please include a heart exam and lung exam on all clients regardless of the reason for seeking care. So, if someone presented with cough and cold symptoms, you would examine the General appearance, HEENT, Neck, Heart, and Lungs for a focused/episodic exam. The pertinent positive and negative findings should be relevant to the chief complaint and health history data. This template is a great example of information documented in a real chart in clinical practice. The term “Rule Out…” cannot be used as a diagnosis. Please describe appearance of area assessed and refrain from using the term “normal” when documenting this note. Please note that requirements for SOAP notes may differ across NP courses.
