I also chose this, @drzed but looking back, if there was down-regulation of the receptors then she wouldnt have enough receptors to cause altered mental status and respiratory depression, side effects that you do develop tolerance to. How I would have remembered that morphine is metabolized to other active metabolites is beyond me. Happy studying hope this helps.
He's also on a controlled analgesic pump. I've been on one before, and basically you can't keep pumping yourself constantly with it. You can hit the button, get a small dose, and then have to wait a bit of time to hit it again. The next time you hit the effect (at least for me) was always the same meaning I wasn't becoming tolerant to it (I was on one for a week). This controlled pump phrase has come up in another exam, which makes me think when they say that they want you to think this isn't someone who's taking alot of meds all the time. I also like aag thought process.
Amazing video dude. Somehow never learned this in neuro lol.
Awesome video! Is this why you can give Mg2+ to eclampsia patients, because if so, mind goddamn blown.
