What Level Of Hpi Does One Get Out Of This.

She Is A 54-year Old Female Recently Found To Have A Left Breast Cyst After An Abnormal Mammogram. This Was Aspirated Recently With Resolution Of The Cyst. She Is Her For Follow-up. She Did Not Find This Herself. It Was Completely Asymptomatic.

She Also Complains Of Feeling Her Heart Pound In Her Neck, Particularly At Night When She Sometimes Awakens From Sleep. She Is On A Combination Of Toprol-xl And Hyzaar For Hypertension. She Doesn't Have Any Blood Pressure Measurements Iwth Her Of Recent.

The Two Ros Are Met. Not Noted Here.

I say it is detailed.

Modifying factor-aspirated or this could be used as past history if no other was obtained

Severity-awakens from sleep
Modifying factors- medications she is on

Here is what I find:
CC: Cyst
Location: Breast
Severity: Asymptomatic
Modifying Factor: Resolved by aspiration.

CC: Heart pounding sensation
Location: Neck
Timing: particularly at night when she wakes up.

For modifying factor credit, it should state if something is making it better or worse, so I wouldn't count the meds here. So for both complaints, I only come up with a brief HPI.

I come up with detailed (but I assumed that chief complaint is separately recorded, just as ROS is)

Duration - recently
Location - breast
Quality - cyst
Context - after mammogram
Modifying factors - aspirated w/ resolution
Assoc sign/sympt - asymptomatic

I didn't even count the heart pounding paragraph because I already had 4+
