Oh! The article I found said that MRSA has been shown to colonize the saliva of bed bugs for up to like 15 days, and that they isolated MRSA from several specimens. Is it just more likely that the patient scratches it in since staph is e v e r y w h e r e ?
I mean it’s possible. The last review course I took said that it wasn’t associated with anything. It may be, but either way...same answer :)
So bedbugs can't transmit HIV. Cool. #whatareyou #anidiotsandwich
@frijoles - Hey if it makes you feel any better I put HIV too, with my reasoning being that they feed on blood...and HIV is transmitted via bodily fluids. Whoops!
Me four :-/
Slowly raising my hand as well
patient has malaria with obvious picture and clinic, i answered because only thing associated with liver was hypoglycemia
I was thinking that she is hypotensive which can cause an infarct of the pituitary (since pituitary is growing during pregnancy) and therefore she'd have secondary adrenal insufficiency.
Dumbasses unite lmao
me also :/ sitting there trying to figure it out during the test I thought I was so smart too - like "wow nbme, way to tie in micro and endocrine, not getting me though!" ... i was wrong.
saturday night palsy is radial nerve; only hint for axillary was arm abduction
The crutches would affect the radial nerve (FA p440).
Ooh that is tricky tricky. In the question stem they said they already ligated that one ("a branch of the brachiocephalic trunk") and were wondering what else needs to be ligated in addition to that. Therefore the answer is the superior thyroid artery, which is coming from the external carotid. I don't think I knew any of this when I did the question though, cause I had to google all this just now.
In the stem they said they ligated a branch of the thyrocervical trunk, not the brachiocephalic. According to Wiki, the thyroid ima artery (which does arise from the brachiocephalic trunk) is only present in about 3-10% of the population. Therefore, while technically this answer could be correct, external carotid is "more correct".
