Subjective Analysis - Abdominal Assessment

In subjective analysis, the care provider gathers relevant data regarding the client’s health, family history, medical conditions, and medication history. This information helps clinicians understand the history of the client’s condition (Saaristo, 2020). The chief complaint section highlights the experiences of the client with the current condition. The subjective section also contains information on symptoms experienced in different body parts (Saaristo, 2020). Since the client complained of abdominal pain, the subjective analysis should focus more on gastrointestinal symptoms. These symptoms include diarrhea, vomiting, nausea, and bowel patterns. Notably, the clinician needs to capture the client’s lifestyle, discontinued medications, and family history.
