Recent memory. Ask the patient to recall three items or a brief story after a delay of 3 to 5 minutes. Be sure the information has been registered by asking the patient to repeat it immediately before initiating the delay. Provide distractions during the delay to prevent the patient from rehearsing the items repeatedly. A timer, such as a digital watch or phone alarm, should be used to provide a consistent interval from patient to patient—and to prevent the examiner from forgetting to ask for the test items!
