The positioning of the arm on presentation is different that what I was taught. I thought the arm was held in extension. I might be wrong here.

sassy_vulpix  Same, I was confused between extended and flexed too. It says flexed in FA Step 1, but on one of the uworld questions during step 1 it had said extended. +

  • Key idea: IgA deficiency classically leads to Anaphylaxis to IgA-containing blood products + Atopy + Autoimmune disease + GI/sinopulmonary infections (IgA involved in mucosal immunity)
  • Anaphylactic transfusion reaction: Respiratory distress/wheezing, angioedema, hypotension, hives/urticaria
  • Urticarial transfusion reaction: Angioedema, wheezing

sassy_vulpix  Patient is a known case of IgA deficiency and we still gave them blood products with IgA? +
