    Default Diffuse 5/5 strength

    AAPC: Back to School
    Need some opinions........Using 1997 General Multi-system exam template

    Under neuro exam, what bullet(s) would you count for this statement:
    "diffuse 5/5 strength, sensory exam normal"

    1997 Neuro Exam bullets:
    --Test cranial nerves with notation of any deficits
    -- Examination of deep tendon reflexes with notation of pathological reflexes (eg, Babinski)
    --Examination of sensation (eg, by touch, pin, vibration, proprioception)
