    Ok. I think i'm understanding better now. I know that i can't use the same statement twice. But how do i determine if i can get a bullet from the constitutional for either ROS or PE ?? What makes the two different ? I am reffering to the 1997 Guidelines. What are some examples of constitutional ? I know for the PE three vitals count as one bullet and general appearance as another. BUt why would fever and weight loss only count towards ROS ? Couldn't weight loss be considered general appearance ? I have reviewed the E.M university site which is very helpful with examples but i can't seem to find any for constitutional.
