I am sure if I got 10 geriatric patients and had then dorsiflex there foot or
assisted in the dorsiflexion and then asked them each "if that hurts" when you
or I do this.....8 out of 10 of those patients are gonna say "why yes...that
does hurt". Nevermind that the patients does exhibit any symptoms or risk
factors....."Homan's sign" is positive lets rule out DVT!!! Maybe I should use
that same quarter to validate the results of those venous exams. Mr or
Mrs "so and so" you call it....heads you got DVT.....tails you can go home.
