when evaluating Cranial nerves...is it ok to use a tongue depressor to provoke a gag reflex?? ins't this too invasive or agressive for this CS exam, considering We have to tune it down when it comes to physical exam??

I kept searching

Thanks a lot!! :)

What We can do is:

  1. Ask the patient to open his mouth wide open, while saying aaaaagh.
  2. See the uvula.
I Hope this could help too.
