Abstract

Abstract: Problem-oriented avian medicine is a system based on logic and focused on the identification and resolution of a patient's problems. The problem-oriented approach requires identification of the problem(s), formulation of a plan for working up each problem, and case follow-up over time. Although the problem-based approach ultimately should lead to a diagnosis, it also helps the clinician avoid tunnel vision, misdiagnose a case, and overlook important aspects of the patient's disease(s). This article presents a case of acute lethargy and regurgitation in a companion bird that was successfully managed with a problem-oriented approach to illustrate problem solving in avian practice.
