the_enigma28  Mechanism of opioid-induced rhinorrhoea, lacrimation, stomach cramps and diarrhoea is actually muscarinic receptor effects, rather than alpha adrenergic blockade caused by cocaine, causing nasal vasoconstriction. +1
baja_blast  Symptoms of Opioid Withdrawal can be remembered with the phrase "anxious, hot, and moist" per SketchyPharm Opiods. Rhinorrhea is one way people can be "moist" during opioid withdrawal, but they can also sweat excessively and lacrimate too. +1

mousie  Hypotension can also cause pre renal azotemia with a FENa <1%.... How do you know this is ischemic ATN and not hypotension induced Prerenal Azotemia? +11  
sympathetikey  I had the same thought as you @mousie, but I think "azotemia" and low urine output push it more towards ATN (looking back; I got it wrong too). Plus, the initially MVC / muscle damage probably caused some tubule injury by itself. +2  
ajo  This might help clarify why the pt. has ATN rather than pre renal azotemia. The question did mention, though subtly, that the bleeding was controlled. That most likely indicates that his hypovolemia has been corrected. Developing azotemia 24 hrs after correction of hypovolemia is more suggestive of ATN (since he doesn't have hypovolemia anymore). I hope that helps and feel free to correct me, if I am wrong. +41  
ajo  In addition to my earlier comment, I just noticed the question also explicitly mentioned that he was fully volume restored. Which is consistent with my earlier assumption! +14  
gh889  Although initially, hypotension causes prerenal azotemia, the volume correction pushes you away from prerenal azotemia. but they want you to remember that in hypovolemia, the kidneys are also becoming ischemic, and so development of azotemia 24 hours later is more indicative of intrarenal azotemia due to ATN +  
sugaplum  for anyone who wants to see it: FA 2019 pg591 +1  
divya  i'm confused about one thing. if the tubules aren't working like they should, the bun:cr ratio falls right? doesn't that essentially mean azotemia reduces too? +  
osler_weber_rendu  Lets all take a moment to admire how shit this question is "Bp 90/60.""Repeated episodes of hypotension in the OR" and still the answer is ATN +4  
donttrustmyanswers  @osler_wever_rendu ATN can be caused by ischemia. +2

divya  why is left atrial pressure normal while pulm arterial and right ventricular pressures are high? +6  
leaf_house  @divya It looks like the left atria can dilate in response to severe aortic stenosis, which I think would bring up the minimum diastolic pressure of LA (and I guess lower max systolic pressure?) like dilated cardiomyopathy. Link: +

cr  why not C?. It´s not supose that it improve the efectivity of insulin? +  
divya  because insulin uptake by adipose and muscle tissue is not limited to thiazolidinediones but also and mainly by metformin. and glitazones' primary MOA is PPAR gamma stimulation which then increases insulin sensitivity to other tissues. +1

hungrybox  I forgot/didn't know this factoid and narrowed it to the correct answer and a wrong answer. Guess which one I chose? +14  
yotsubato  >That means something was delaying NMDA receptor activating and the only answer that made sense as the Mg inhibiting NMDA at resting potential. What makes the fasting gating kinetics choice incorrect then? +5  
imgdoc  NMDA receptors are both voltage gated and ligand gated channels. Glutamate and aspartate are endogenous ligands for this receptor. Binding of one of the ligands is required to open the channel thus it exhibits characteristics of a ligand channel. If Em (membrane potential) is more negative than -70 mV, binding of the ligand does NOT open the channel (Mg2+ block on the NMDA receptor). IF Em is less negative than -70 mV binding of the ligand opens the channel (even though no Mg2+ block at this Em, channel will not open without ligand binding. Out of the answer choices only NMDA receptors blocked by Mg2+ makes sense. Hope this helps. +6
