Abstract:
This work presents a study of the current practice of cardiovascular examination of pre-surgical patients by UK Podiatric Surgeons. Podiatric Surgeons trained and educated in the United Kingdom are unique in that whilst they are specialist qualified, they do not hold a degree in medicine. As such certain peripheral examinations which involve the peri-operative process but may not actually effect the outcome of the surgical procedure are performed in a brief but effective manner in a style which may be considered as 'non traditional'. This thesis examines, not only the current practice, but explores the current 'thinking' behind the practice and seeks to put reasons forward as to why podiatric surgeons practice in the manner in which they do.
