    Default Physical Exam or history?

    If you're looking at physical exam bullets ... no. This is too vague a statement to count for any bullet on the 1997 exam.

    If you're asking whether it counts in the history ... yes for Psych ROS, -OR- yes for quality (decline) on HPI, -OR- yes for past medical history (but not ALL three for this one phrase).

    Hope that helped.

    If it in the exam by 1995 guidelines perhaps psych or neuro (one, not both).
