QOD 30: Palpation (GI/GU/Health Promotion and Maintenance)

Answer:

D.  The pads of the fingers

Rationale: 

When assessing a patient through palpation, the nurse may use different parts of the hand to find differing signs related to the patients condition. The pads of the fingers are best used for palpating pulsations, edema, and crepitus, as well as determining moisture content of the skin.
