    Palpation of Carotid Arteries

    Read from mcleod/bates and watch tally's or swartz's dvd.

    I don't know use of hydrocele fluid.

    But question asked frequently in our viva was how will you differentiate between hydrocele fluid and urine?

    Ans: hydrocele fluid contains fibrinogen while urine doesn't so putting a drop of blood will differentiate between both.
