Why is it not hypoglycemia?? Hypoglycemia can also lead to seizure

cuthbertallg0od  Same thoughts here, and I think hypoglycemia occurs earlier in kids/infants than in adults (like 8 hours?) -- maybe just more likely to be hyponatremia since Na+ lost in the diarrhea...

From FA, succinylcholine can be reversed during phase 2 by cholinesterase inhibitor. Can someone explain if succinylcholine is metabolized by cholinesterase, how can we use cholinesterase inhibitors to reverse it?

Can someone please explain to me: If the posterior 1/3 of the tongue is developed from 3rd and 4th pharyngeal arches, why is it wrong to choose pharyngeal arch?

I chose C because I thought it has been four weeks so it must have been acute tubular necrosis. Can anyone explain? Thanks!

miriamp3  @haozhier if you are deciding to think that he had a ATN because of the 4 weeks.. then he should be by now in the recovery phase(polyuria, Bun/cr fall) But he is with HF and his urine output has progressively decrease. So AKI prerenal HF Bun/cr >20. the only one is D. Don't get confused with the rest of the information.
jesusisking  I thought the same thing so chose C as well!

Itraconazole requires the acidic environment of the stomach to be absorbed. Omeprazole inhibits the H+/K+ pump of the stomach, thereby decreasing the acidity of the stomach. So when the patient takes Omeprazole and Itraconazole together, Itraconazole won't be absorbed into the body. That's why it has no effect.

It's recommended to take medications at least 2 hours prior to taking an antacid.

necrotizingfasciitis  Just adding support to the above explanation: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3671798/ +1  
pakimd  do all azoles or just itraconazole only requires an acidic environment to be absorbed? +2  
chandlerbas  just itraconazole and posaconazole +4  
lilyo  @chandlerbas, where did you find this information? I was looking over this on FA but they do not mention it and I would like a bit more information. Thanks! +1  
chandlerbas  haha no stress! the article above submitted by @necrotizingfasciitis does a descent job explaining it, however its not good enough, I looked into a bit more on uptodate but wasn't fruitful in my endeavours. goodluck! +  
haozhier  How are we supposed to know this!! It is not in UWORLD or FA right? +1
