I thought thought measuring a gas in the blood only measures partial pressure of dissolved gas in the blood

schistosite  Yeah, me too...the fact that they expect us to assume that HCO3- is counted in their measurement for CO2 concentration is absolutely absurd. +2
happyhib_  they tell you measured is around 24 and 22 or some bs but give "mM"; if you look at the lab sheet HCO3 has a units in mM and normal is 22-28 = they are not just looking at partial pressure's. +1

The fallopian tubes should leak contrast because there is a gap between fallopian tubes and ovary. I.e. if there is no spillage, that means there is a blockage = infertility!

mcdumbass  This makes sense... but I don't trust your answers +8

wishmewell  isn't the basement membrane the deepest? +  
wishmewell  nvm! lol +1  
lilyo  I also picked basement membrane but unlike you I haven't had a "nvm" moment. Help please. +2  
mcdumbass  @lilyo Basement membrane is between the epidermis and dermis; beneath the dermis is the subcutaneous tissue +5  
blah  I think some people might have picked basement membrane because we're taught once cancer goes through the BM it turns from in situ to invasive. This is correct, but subcutaneous as the others pointed out are deeper so the prognosis is worse (BM + deeper tissue). +3

mcdumbass  Adding on, hoarseness + difficulty swallowing means something is pushing on the recurrent laryngeal. Murmur in the second right intercostal space = AR, AS, or Pulm regurg --> AR associated with thoracic aortic aneurysm, or at minimum, you can infer it's a cardiac etiology +4  
chadgas  The dyspnea, dysphagia, stridor, and cough are pretty indicative of a mediastinal mass. So expansion of the aorta can cause compression of the esophagus, trachea, recurrent laryngeal nerve, etc. depending on the severity of it. +
