Hi guys,

I am a UK paramedic.

I am doing some research into mnemonics for secondary surveys in primary care. Obviously we all start with ABCDE but is anyone aware of any alternatives to SAMPLE for a secondary survey? I know that things become more conversational as time goes on and secondary surveys are just investigative questioning but are there any structured approaches out there?

Thanks in advance!

thanks! that's a comprehensive list! Looks like there are no alternatives to SAMPLE after all...Im looking at general secondary survey mnemonics, although there are loads of structured functional enquiries here. thanks again.

Maybe just work on a good list of pertinent positives and negatives to add to your assessments. Mnemonics are learning tools you use until you replace them with experience and intuition.

Also, study your home meds; they are more reliable than patients regarding hx.
