This video accompanies “Managing alcoholic liver disease,” a CE feature by Dolores Morrison, Justine Sgrillo, and Lauren H. Daniels, which appears in the November issue of Nursing2014. It demonstrates how to assess a patient for the presence of asterixis. Asterixis is a sign of metabolic encephalopathy, including hepatic encephalopathy from cirrhosis/liver failure. Asterixis is also referred to as liver flap.
