Physical measurements. Obtain and review height

Needing a basic script from the content given

General Physical Examination
The order of the examination presented here assumes the woman is sitting up to begin the examination. This description proceeds from head to toe, rather than by system.
1. Physical measurements. Obtain and review height, weight, blood pressure, pulse, and temperature (if indicated) before performing the physical examination. Height and weight are most useful when converted to the body mass index (BMI) using Table 6-1. Both BMI and blood pressure should be considered screening tools (see Chapter 7 for further discussion).
2. General appearance. Observe the woman for posture; striking or obvious characteristics or limitations; general emotional state; and appropriateness of dress, speech pattern, and social interaction during the visit.
3. Eyes, ears, nose, and throat. Inspect the physical health of the eyes, nose, and ears. Examination of the ears with the otoscope and examination of the eyes with the ophthalmoscope may be performed as indicated. The oropharynx examination includes inspection of the lips, teeth, and gums for dental health, and visualization of the oral cavity for mucosal color, lesions, and tonsillar edema or exudates.
4. Neck. Note range of motion and palpate lymph nodes in the neck and clavicular area.
5. Thyroid. Palpate the gland and isthmus.
6. Chest and lungs. Auscultate the posterior, lateral, and anterior lobes.
7. Spine. Palpate the vertebral column, and inspect the skin.
8. Kidneys. Check costovertebral tenderness.
9. Reflexes. Elicit patellar and additional reflexes as indicated.
10. Peripheral circulation and varicosities. Inspect legs and feet.
The woman then reclines and the examination continues:
11. Heart. Auscultate.
12. Breasts and axillary lymph nodes. See the next section.
13. Abdomen. Inspect the skin, palpate superficially and deeply in all quadrants, and palpate inguinal lymph nodes.
