I am new to the orthopaedic/sports medicine specialty, and I have a question regarding exam bullets, please.

In this chart, the provider notes that the patient has "Negative anterior drawer," "No coronal plane instability," and a "positive Ober test."

In regards to the E/M exam portion, where would you assign the bullets for the above exam findings?

Thanks.

these would be tests to determine STABILITY of that extemity - one bullet on the MS exam

Another question, please.....

What if the provider states in the physical exam portion that the patient has a "2B Lachman, 1+ pivot shift," and a "grade I valgus opening?" Would this be considered stability as well?

Thanks.
