What is the lookout
Observation: It is to observe the patient’s shape, nutritional development status, as well as fat, thin, tall, short, straight and deformed.

The normal body shape is that all parts of the body have a uniform appearance and are commensurate with development. The chest is broad, the muscles are strong, the features are straight, the movements are agile, and the movement is free.
