  1. Bro there is some serious ASMR to this. I just came back to it after watching earlier tonight and realize I only got to like 3 min in before I fell asleep and woke like 30 mins ago (about 4 hours later).

  2. The way she drops her hand onto the pillow then says "I'm aware you have some difficulty using your hands" 😂

  3. I know the patient probably volunteered for this but damn lol. He said "tell us what you think is wrong with this woman."

  4. Only feedback would be to tie hair back… our assessors dock marks or even fail you if you touch your hair/body and touch the patient again…

  5. My grandmother had hands similar to these resulting from rheumatoid arthritis. Hers were similarly scrunched up and crossed over one another

  6. looks like she has scleroderma, her skin texture, wounds, and the restriction of her fingers flexing all are common symptoms of scleroderma

  7. Ah, yes… I remember tests like that while I was at Uni. A stone-faced professor glaring at your every move, fraying your nerves to the point where you can't remember your own name, never mind what you're supposed to be doing. The young lady did far better than I would have under those circumstances.

  8. This is so saddening for me tbh. My grandma had same finger problems left hand worse and non-usable and right hand only usable a little. Unfortunately my grandma passed away exactly last year. Watching this video made me think of her. Great video, great doctors. Thank you.

  9. I see Samuel L. Jackson from Amos & Andrew.
    Nurse handles patient's limitations perfectly.
    Most boxers don't have hands that bad. Poor woman.
    ALL physicians should see this video to learn how to be with such a patient.

  10. For self-examination purposes, I just attempted to stick 6 fingers (on top of each other) in between my teeth – managed to do it, and felt like breaking my neck afterwards …

  11. how many times has different ways has she asked the patient to flex her fingers when she clearly is restricted in that movement…goon
