This is a great example of a poorly written question. Is the infant still sedated from the surgery or ventilated? What is even happening to the surgical site? Why is analgesic therapy not already on-board post surgery? Why is this author such a douche-bag?

Perhaps the world will never know.

"Placenta appears complete but torn" - if it's torn and only appears complete, rather than being confirmed as complete, how can you rule out retained placental tissue? You wouldn't just assume it was complete at a complex delivery, it would require confirmation.

drmohandes  I feel you man, was guessing between the two answers as well. I think torn but complete means the whole placenta is there, but in pieces? Anyway classic scumbag NBME question writing. +4
sahusema  For NBME questions, I've found that whatever is told in the findings section of a stem should be taken as 100% true even if it's an incomplete description, super confusing, or misleading. So placenta complete? โ†’ uterine atony +2

I love these shit pictures. It's like some old angry dude opened a text book from the 1950s and took a picture with his razor phone then uploaded the picture using windows 99.

seagull  Also, I think pseudomonas would present with hemoptysis and a much worse clinical picture. +2
drmohandes  Community-acquired pneumonia. If it was a CF patient = pseudomonas. In a 25-year smoker (COPD?) = H. influenzae. +8
etherbunny  That'll be RAZR phone and Windows 98. FIFY, f**king millenials. :roll_eyes: ;) +5

Nothing like force-feeding an Ativan to a patient who already said they are willing to go back into the scanner
