Yeah, this was my issue. I got it wrong because of this-- still don't understand the logic bc you can get chlamydia multiple times
FUCK you're right. Damn I didn't even think about that. That's fucking dumb. I guess this is why nobody gets perfect scores on this exam lol. Once you get smart enough, the errors in the questions start tripping you up. Lucky for me I'm lightyears behind that stage lmao
to make it even more poorly written, it says they are doing a screening program for FIRST YEAR women college students. So one year later, are they following this same group of students, or would they be screening the incoming first years?
I think the same at first, but after a second read, the question stem said "additional" 200 students, which means the first 500 students don't count.
@hungrybox You are me.
@usmile1 I was thinking the exact same thing...
Best I can guess is that both S. aureus and E. faecalis can cause UTI, but S. aureus is described as having clusters where as the other Gm+ cocci are in chains
My doubt here in this question is the fact that Enterococcus faecalis is a normal gut microorganism that causes these different symptoms of sickness after genitoruinary or gastrointestinal procedures... but in this question there is no mention of any procedures.
its says chains, so not staph. only other is entero
according to first aid, staph aureus is not one of the high yield bugs for UTIs
uti bugs are
Where in FA 2019 does it list that C.coccus is specifically in chains?
@privatejoker FA 2018 Pg 134 table
@privatejoker Enterococcus is Group-D STREP. Streps are arranged in chains.
FA 2019 Page 639, too.
