    1...two aeroplanes collide on a runway and there r multiple casualties.. one of the survivor is found walking in a daze but otherwise seemingly unharmed over his objections he was taken to hospital where CXR show wide mediastinum and fractured left first rib ....what could be the most likely possiblity in this case

    1. fractured rib causing damage to nerve plexus
    2. ruptured aorta
    3 diaphragmatic rupture

    2..a 23 yr old man crashes hs car into wall when he arrives at the ER a mirror image of the word ford is seen imprintd over his precordial region
    he is exquisitely tender over a point in the sternum where palpation elicits a gritty feeling of bone grating on bone
    which one of the following is true regarding management of this patient

    1..CXR will reveal sternal fracture and can check for widened mediastinum
    2.could have myocardial injury so do cardiac enzymes first
    3ECG is not helpful in this case
    4 . none of the above

    Answer: of the 1st ques is ruptured aorta. the reason for it are following.
    Aortic Tear
    • 90% tear at subclavian (near ligamentum arteriosum), most die at scene
    • salvageable if diagnosis made rapidly

    X-ray features of Aortic tear (ABC WHITE):
    • depressed left mainstem Bronchus
    • pleural Cap
    • Wide mediastinum (most consistent)
    • Hemothorax
    • Indistinct aortic knuckle
    • Tracheal deviation to right side
    • Esophagus (NG tube) deviated to right

    Ans of the 2nd ques is 1.CXR will reveal sternal fracture and can check for widened mediastinum.
    Before doing cardiac enzyme, as a rule it's compulsory to do ECG and here it says ECG is not helpful in this case. so ans is only a.

    Naegele’s rule for estimating a woman’s due date is based on all of the following factors except -
    a- Regular monthly menstrual circles
    b- A pregnancy of 280 days
    c- Ovulation about day 14
    d- Cycle regulation with birth control pills prior conception
    e- Conception at midcycle

    Answer: d. The expected date of confinement is calculated by adding 9 months and 7 days to the date of the last menstrual period, which is a total of 280 days. This calculation assumes a 28-30-day cycle with ovulation and conception around midcycle or day 14. This calculation would not be accurate in a woman with regular 35-day cycles because her ovulation occurs around day 21, which then affects the true due date. Because of an occasional delay in ovulation in the cycle after stopping the birth control pills, ovulation may occur later than 2 weeks after the last pill period.

    Q. A pregnant vegetarian is likely to be deficient in which of the following substances?
    a- Calcium
    b- Folic acid
    c- Iron
    d- Protein
    e- Vitamin B12

    Answer: e. A vegetarian eats no meat, and vitamin B12, occurs naturally only in foods of animal origin. Thus, a physician should assume a lack of B12 in the diet of a vegetarian. If a vegetarian drinks milk and eats cheese, beans, fruits, green leafy vegetables, and whole grain cereal, she should not have folic acid, protein, calcium, or iron deficiencies.

    Q. Incompatible combination include which of the following?
    1- 40-week pregnancy and fetal weight of 7 ½ lbs
    2- 14 - week pregnancy and fetal heart tones by fetoscope
    3- 40-week pregnancy and maternal weight gain of 30 lbs
    4- 30-week pregnancy and top of the uterus 27 cm above the symptoms

    Answer: (2, 4) At 40 weeks in a normal pregnancy, one can expect a maternal weight gain of 20-30 lbs and a fetal weight of about 7 ½ lbs. The senor device can identify fetal heart tones at 12 -14 weeks, while the fetoscope cannot pick up the fetal heart tones until 18 - 20 weeks. At 30 weeks gestation, the top of the uterus should be about 30 cm from the symphysis pubic as the measurement in centimeters approximates the weeks of gestation between 18 and 30 weeks.

    1. A 5 year old male child is brought to you , by his parents who state that he has had diarrhea for several days. He now weighs 18 kg and his parents indicate that he previously weighted 20 kg. He is weak and appears to be dehydrated. Lab test provide the following results:

    Plasma osmolarity: 270 mosm/L
    Urine osmolarity: 1200 mosm/L
    Blood pressure: 100/56 mmHg

    Approximately how much NaCl would be required to restore his total body osmoles (not his osmolarity, we'll assume appropriate hydration will be administered) to normal, assuming that before his bout of diarrhea his plasma osmolarity was 280 mosm/L, extracellular fluid volume was 20% of body weight, and intracellular fluid volume was 40% of body weight? Assume no excretion of solutes or water during saline infusion. The molecular weight of NaCl is 58.5. I am very sure that you all know that 1 L of water weighs 1 kg.

    b. 18.5 gm
    c. 20.7 gm
    d. 34.8 gm
    e. 37.0 gm

    2. If you administer 2.0 L of 0.9% NaCl, (286 mOsm/L), calculate the approximate plasma osmolarity of the patient in question #2, assuming osmotic equilibrium and no excretion of solutes or water? Assume that the conditions are the same as stated in question #2 after diarrhea but before any treatment.

    a. 265 mosm/L

    4. You wish to evaluate kidney function in a 65 year old male and ask him to collect his urine over a 24 hours period. He returns to you 4320 ml of urine, collected over the preceding 24 hours. The clinical lab returns the following results from analysis of his urine and plasma samples:

    Plasma creatinine: 3.0 mg/dl
    Urine creatinine: 30 mg/dl
    Plasma potassium: 5.0 mmol/L
    Urine potassium: 10 mmol/L

    What is his approximate glomerular filtration rate, assuming that he collected all of his urine in the 24 hour period?

    a. 3 ml/min
    b. 10 ml/min
    c. 30 ml/min
    d. 100 ml/min
    e. 125 ml/min

    5. What is the renal reabsorption rate of potassium in the patient described in question #5?
    a. no potassium is being reabsorbed in this patient.
    b. 0.03 mEq/min
    c. 0.12 mEq/min
    d. 0.15 mEq/min
    e. 3.0 mEq/min
    f. 30 mEq/min

    6. What is the approximate potassium intake in the patient described in question #5, assuming steady state conditions, and that the patient collected all of his urine in the preceding 24 hours.

    a. potassium intake cannot be estimated from the data given.
    b. 32 mmole/day
    c. 43 mmole/day
    d. 51 mmole/day
    e. 65 mmole/day

    7. You are treating a 20 year old patient who was diagnosed with inappropriate ADH syndrome (excess ADH production). Which of the following would you expect to fine under steady-state conditions in this patient, compared with normal and assuming a normal diet and fluid intake.

    a. hyponatremia
    b. decreased plasma renin activity
    c. significantly decreased urine volume
    d. decreased ANP levels
    e. a and b
    f. a, b and c

    2)median nerve injury
    3)ulnar nerve injury
    4)Dupuytren's contracture

    Answer should be VIC since for ulnar and median nerve to cause claw hand there need to be paralysis of intrinsic muscles of hand. These muscles receive their innervation from lower part of these nerves, so only a low injury to ulnar or median would cause claw hand. In the question site of injury is too high, in that case long flexors of hand are paralysed, which rule out claw hand since for claw hand to develop both long extensors and flexors need to be intact. So by exclusion answer is VIC.
