Inspection of the patient’s breathing patterns

My focused respiratory assessment included full vital signs, and an inspection of the patient’s breathing patterns, skin color, and respiratory status, also I did palpate to see if there were any abnormalities and listened to her lung sounds using a stethoscope. My patient’s vitals were normal, the only thing her oxygen was dropping to 93% but went back up to 95%, her blood pressure was also elevated at 161/85 but she has a history of Hypertension and is on BP meds and she has been running a little high.

what would be your feedback on this?
