First she is sitting on the exam table. Put the drape on her knees and tell her, you are going to drape her, so she feels more comfortable. Drape is very important.
1. auscultation of the lungs - back
"Is it OK to untie your gown?"
2. ausculatation of the lungs front and of the heart
"Is it OK to lower your gown, so I can listen to your heart and lungs
after you are done, tell her, you are going to tie the gown.
3.Abdominal ausculatation, ask her to lie down. then say:"Is it Ok to lift your gown, so I can listen to your abdomen.
They will have bras on, you can ask her to lift the bras for auscultation. I did and they were very cooperative.
