Hammer and Otoscope sequence of examination

does sequence of examination matters
if pt comes with calf pain then we have to do the related examination first then cvs and pulmo or it can be done in this sequence1-cvs 2-pulmo 3-related exam, because pt will be in sitting position already so we can check cvs and pulmo first then related, because for that we have to ask him to lie down?
is that ok??

It depends on how you are doing with your time during the case. If you start your PE when just 5 mins are left, i'd start with the focused exam first, then auscultate the heart and lungs and close the case with atleast 2 differentials.

If you're able to start the PE before the 5 mins left announcement, you can start with CVS/Resp and then proceed to the focused part. Hope that helps! Good luck.
