is this super out of left field or am I supposed to know this
@motherhen I don't know if this is correct, but I personally tried to reason this one out. If hypertrophy is occurring, more sarcomeres are added which means more beta-myosin. Hypertrophy also means the cell is doing more work, so a transcription factor is likely to be upregulated. From there, the only option with both of those increased had endothelin increased as well, though unclear why that's necessarily increased.
Additionally, axillary nerve supplies sensory innervation for lateral aspect of shoulder.
Radial does lateral elbow and musculocutaneous does lateral forearm.
Vibrio species are mostly non-lactose fermenters except Vibrio vulnificus
I thought V.vulnificus could only cause food poisoning from eating shellfish; turns out contact with wound infections causes it too (hence why walking barefoot on the beach is a risk factor)
When I get mixed up on dead space vs shunt, I anchor myself on the meaning of anatomic dead space: the parts of the airway that don't have associated blood vessels for gas exchange (nose, trachea, bronchi). From there I work backwards to what shunt means: blood vessels that don't have enough air.
Why does albumin solution not have this effect?
I think it's because albumin in saline is hypertonic, which would cause the opposite effect of what the experiment was going for. Fluid would go across the capillaries into the vasculature, rather than vice versa.
Sad picture... I definitely thought this was B-thalessemia since the image looked like different size and shaped RBCs (anisopoikilocytosis). But if I squint my eyes real hard and turn sideways I guess I can also see those spheres
beta thal, iron def and inadequate epo would have low reticulocyte count.
impaired oxidative enzyme aka g6pd deficiency affects mostly males and would have bite cells
