This question is tricky. I used to always miss this presentation. This is laterally medullary syndrome- which most of us have memorizes is a PICA infarct. Fun fact, PICA comes off the vertebral artery.

This is how I remember the sx. If this helps at least one person I will be glad I am exposing my twisted brain.

3+5=8 & 9-11 & B-P.

3: Horner's syndrome 5:spinal trigeminal- ipsi face pain and temp loss 8: vestibular signs, vertigo diplopia

9-11: Nucleus ambiguous, diminshed gag, dysphagia B: Cerebellar - inferior cerebellar peduncle, ipsi ataxia P: Contra pain and temp, cuz this shit was so painful to memorize I throw it to the other side.

Cramping abdominal pain with distention, N/V should make you think SBO

Air-fluid levels in the small bowel but no gas in the colon tells you it's an upper GI issue

Hyperactive bowel sounds + pneumobilia = gallstone ileus

Very few things put air in the liver

ABI<0.9 is diagnostic of peripheral artery disease. First-line treatment is graded exercise program. Revascularization is only indicated for critical limb ischemia (rest pain, non-healing ulcers)

ronabobonafofona  Mad at myself. I picked this answer first but then got thrown off by the "pulse 0". Should've just focused on the ABI. Severe ABI <0.4. +2
