Seems like fatty change would require more than 1 weekend. I choose swelling since it's reversible and seems like something with a quick onset.
I think it's just a bad question. It should be "on weekends"
So his hepatocytes aren't dying ( ballon degeneration ) vs just damaged/increased FA synthesis due to increased NADH/citrate
It's not in pathoma, but I have it written in (so he or Dr. Ryan may have mentioned it) - Alcoholic hepatitis is generally seen in binge drinkers WITH A LONG HISTORY OF CONSUMPTION.
Superior rectal comes from the inferior mesenteric vein which comes from the splenic vein --> portal veins
Thus, this dude had cirrhosis so it would "back-up" into the superior rectal vein.
FA 2018: p360
Superior rectal not superior mesenteric. Took me a minute
ugh am i ever gonna get these right EVER
First aid has a lot of errors
Thats not an error though. Thats the actual reason behind giving hyperbartic O2 for CO poisoning...
negative stranded can't be read by a translator so it needs to be transcribed into + first. Only then can it be used for protein. + is basically mRNA already.
There's only one double stranded RNA family as far as I know- Reovirus so no encephalitis
Spontaneous pneumothorax, as a condition, is significantly more likely than a traumatic pneumothorax from just about anything but a car crash (ok maybe if he was in a fight).
The car crash or a stabbing is also more probable overall but there's no point in inferring something that isn't provided
I picked the traumatic injury also. After reading these comments I looked into it further. Traumatic pneumos occur because of blunt or penetrating chest trauma, and I found that the MCC form of blunt trauma (>70%) is motor vehicle acidents that cause significant trauma (i.e. rib fractures) or even blast trauma. Although it didn't say there were no chest wall fractures, at the same time it didn't indicate any rib fractures, which would be most like to cause the traumatic injury pneumo in the patient's case.
The stem makes no mention of trauma.
i guess the issue is that you have to assume what they mean by "strongest predisposing risk factor for this patient's condition" I think this is dumb bc the answer is completely different based on what you consider this patient's "CONDITION" to be? either way he has a pneumothorax so if you wan to know what caused that its prob him being active or bumping into someone but if you consider the etiology of the pneumothorax then its the bleb and that is from him being a skinny dude/smoker
i went to this b/c he's also only 5/10 that's not tall in my head they could have been nicer and made him 6'1 at least...also i feel like i saw a lot of q's back in the day when i first learned this with a presentation of the person like tripping or something dumb but they already had the bleb and then got the pneumothorax
