Neuro Limbs

This is divided this in to upper and lower limbs, and we suggest that you separate the examination in this order: it may be uncomfortable for the patient to have all his limbs exposed at the same time, it is also makes it easier to remember. The commonest OSCE station is an upper/lower motor neuron lesion, and you should keep this in mind when examining.
