1.4. Search the RepertoryUp one level
There are several ways to find symptoms in the repertory that match those of the person being analyzed. You can use the Search feature to find symptoms in the Repertory by using keywords that are contained in symptom descriptions. Searching in AtamA is similar to searching on the internet.
Evidence of illness in a person is called a symptom; entries in the
Repertory and Materia Medica that may correspond to symptoms are called
rubrics. The tutorial and other help topics will refer to a rubric when
indicating an item in the Repertory or Materia Medica; when it is added
to an analysis it is referred to as a symptom.
Use the Search window to find symptoms using keywords:
- Select the Search tab.
- Type a keyword in the text box at the top. To follow the tutorial, type "hoarse".
- Search for symptoms with the keyword by clicking the "Find" button at the top.
- Browse the search results by selecting chapter titles in the left pane. Click the "Cough" chapter title.
- Add a symptom to Analysis by right-clicking a rubric in the center pane and choosing "Add" from the pop-up menu. Add the "hoarse" symptom.
