Most experts agree that patients must have two of the three cardinal signs to meet diagnostic criteria (Stern, 1993). While some patients meet all three criteria, not all patients with PD develop tremor. In fact, only about 70% develop tremor as a feature of the disease. As the disease progresses, a fourth sign, postural instability, appears, as do many secondary symptoms. It is important for nurses to be comfortable with understanding each of these classic or primary symptoms individually so as to recognize typical PD from atypical parkinsonism and also to be aware of functional issues, limitations, and the need for nursing support and patient education.
