The basic primary medical document of the patient is the case record. In it complaints of the patient,
the beginning and the further current the illnesses given about diseases transferred earlier,
operations, inoculations and harmful habits are consistently stated. Further the objective data
describing a functional both anatomic and physiological condition of all bodies and systems of an
organism on the basis physical of methods of research are reflected.
The descriptive part of the case record comes to an end preliminary, and in clear cases and the final
diagnosis. Then the plan of inspection of the patient (laboratory, functional, tool, etc.) is stated.
After an establishment of true character of disease the plan of treatment of the patient, and in
necessary cases and the plan of preoperative preparation is necessarily planned,
In diaries dynamics{changes} of development of disease and results of treatment is reflected,
changes are brought in earlier planned plan of treatment, if necessary. In 10-12 days as этапного
эпикриза sums up the lead treatment, the tendency is reflected during pathological process.
If necessary applications of surgical methods of treatment in the case record the written approval of
the patient to operation with his{its} personal signature is marked. In case of impossibility (on a
state of health) to make it to the patient, his{its} consent makes sure the signature of two doctors
(зав. отд.). At несовершеннолетии the patient the written approval to operation is given by parents
(relatives). And at last, at mental inferiority of the patient the consent, on the basis of the conclusion
of the special commission, relatives or trustees of the patient give.
Indications to the operation, the elected technique of its{her} performance, a kind of anesthesia and
other. Are reflected in the special preoperative conclusion (concept). In the subsequent and the case
record the report of operation, the description a preparation, current after the operational period in
dynamics{changes} and an outcome of treatment is reflected.
The case record выписным эпикризом in which results of treatment are reflected comes to an end,
medical and labour recommendations are given, and if necessary patients go on ВКК and ВТЭК.
