When radiographic studies are done, Radiographs shows what?
9. Opoids usually cause Constipation. A drug/medication that selectively block mu opoid receptors on the gut mucosa without reversing the analgesic effect of the opoids. This drug is also used for reversal of opoid induced constipation. Name the drug?
10. Clinical symptoms are not sufficient to make a diagnosis of EIB (Exercise Induced Bronchoconstriction). So, bronchoprovocation testing with exercise or inhalation of dry, cold air is recommended. A fall in FeV1 of a)5% b)10% c)15 d)20% is diagnostic?

  1) I JUST READ THIS HAHAHAH...reactivation of hep b (if this is not correct going into depression haha)
2. xray is initial i believe and MRI if need more--adhesive capsulitits..but could also be arthirits..both are affected in passive and active ROM. for arthritis--nsaids..and adhesive capsulitits--PT? unsure
3. not sure what CRVO..its conjunctivits.
4. i believe its can give local pain nerve injections..i think its due to overactivity of NSS after injury to the area. unsure of all else. you can do nerve conduction tests i believe as well for dx
5. someone on chronic steroids, hypercalcemia (not in acute setting-fluids is first), pagets disease, ostepenia+fractures
6. teriperatide?
7. lofgren syndrome? steroids? if just sarcoidosis and tx
8. haven't done peds :/
9. no clue :) hahah. oh wait...methylneltrexone bromide?
10. C :)! 15%..normal for asthma is 20%

  @jazz: You're doing great. I hope I was like you when I started given that you still have to do Peds and Ob/gyn. Good luck. Pray for me ....Mine is creeping up like a zombie

1. lol....i was looking for PML as well...dont go into depression....
2. I was goingfor Adhesive Capsulitis. So radiologically nothing is needed. Clinically diagnosed. Tx is Excercise or physiotherapy
3.CRVO is Central Retinal Vein and the anaswer for this one is Cataract. The well known we all know is Anterior Uveitis.
4.Diagnosis is confirmed by either autonomic testing that measures increased resting sweat output or MRI that looks for the bone, skin or muscular changes. (CRPS mostly occurs post trauma).
Treatment is Regional Sympathetic Nerve Block or IV Regional Anesthesia.
5. All that you said PLUS Low trauma hip or vertebral fractures regardless of T score and
Elevated 10 year fracture risk calculated by “Fracture Risk Assessment Tool” (FRAZX), greater than 20% for major osteoporotic fractures and greater than 3% for a hip fracture.
6. yeah.bull's eye; Teriparatide (PTH1-34)
7. NO PUL SYMPTOMS so just wait and watch. No tx necessary.
8. worries. its Prune belly syndrome.
Radiograph of kidnys, Ureter and bladder classic appearance of the bowels hanging over the lateral edge of the abdominal wall. (This one was very interesting to me)
9. Yup. Methylnaltrexone
10. Yup 15%

Hope this was helpful. Please correct me if i am misleading somewhere.
