Answer preview

During HEENT assessment, the expected objective data include looking around skull that has no lesions, bumps, and masses. A facial examination reveals the patient’s facial expressions either during a touch. On the contrary, assessments of the neck show head positioning and its motion, while the external structures of the ocular will help reveal symmetry between the eyes. Based on the review I did, the objective data I gathered is that the eyes had no sign of redness, inflammation, or other anomalies. During the palpation assessment, I did not detect any soreness or lumps. Her head and neck exhibited a complete range of motion, and both pupils appeared normal and the same size. Her eyes normally respond to light, and the eye’s sclera appears white, with clear conjunctiva. Based on the ear assessments, her ears are equal in size, with no visual abnormalities. The tympanic membrane appears shiny, translucent and emits a pearly-gray color. She also has no hearing problems.
