Work Step by Step

Auscult-listen ation-process Listening to a patient for a heart murmur- Auscultation is listening to the natural sounds made by the body such as heart sounds therefore auscultation would be the best method to discover a heart murmur which is an abnormal sound. Histo-tissue logy-process To view the microscopic structure of the liver, one would need a microscope to observe it.Histology is the best method to do it. Microscopically examining liver tissue for signs of hepatitis-Histopathology is the microscopic examination of tissues for signs of disease. Learning the blood vessels of a cadaver-Dissection is carefully and separating tissues to reveal their relationships. Performing a breast self-examination-Percussion is when the examiner taps on the body and feels for abnormal resistance.Breast self-examination involves touching one's breasts to feel for abnormal lumps.
