    osmolarity in pregnancy/pCO2

    might be too late?

    OK for those of u who still come here..
    Confirmed and referenced - Physiology in Obs

    OSMOLARITY IN PREGNANCY = 280mosmol/kg
    pCO2 IS 30mmHg!

    Spleen Production of Lymphocyte

    I know it's been a long time. But RCOG used to produce a past paper with answers a few years back and this question was in it.

    Function of adult spleen:

    C. Production of Lymphocyte - ANSWER TRUE.

    Arias Stella changes

    In General and Systemic Pathology, Underwood

    Arias Stella changes in Decidua is NOT pathognomonic of pregnancy as it can happen without pregnancy.

    Paper 2
    Q15. In a healthy woman , renin
    E. activity is blocked by captopril --mostly answered T
    However, in my opinion, Captopril is a ACEI. block ACE but no reaction on Renin which convert angiotensinogen to angiotensin I

    Q 17. Arterial plasma at 13 weeks of gestation in the normal pregnant woman:
    A. has a freesing point of 15^C--f
    B. has an osmolality of 190mosmal/lit---f
    C. has a Pco2 of 4KPa (30mmHg) -- T , I guess, not sure
    D. has a creatinine concentration of 200umol/lit-- f
    E. has a sodium concentration of 140 meq/lit---T
    any different answers ?

    paper 2 Q21 White cell migration from blood vessels in areas of inflammation involves:

    T A. cell migration occurring between endothelial cells
    F B. a passive loss of fluid blood elements
    T C. cell migration independent of endothelial cells
    T D. initial imigration of polymorphonuclear netrophils..
    F E. more polymorphs than monocytes after 2 days

    in inflammation its not the passive loss of fluid( passive loss is meant for the transudate and inflammation involves exudate) ,forces drawing fluid out are intravascular hydrostatic pressure and osmotic pressure of interstitial fluid. E is definitely false as neutrophills are the dominant cells in 1st 24 hrs ,while monocytes and macrophages are dominant in next 24-48 hrs

    Paper 1 Q 19. In a woman of reproductive age,serum concentrations of following hormones exhibit a recognised pattern of diurnal variation
    F a-progesterone
    T b-melatonin
    T c-cortisol
    F d-oestrone
    F e-FSH

    A & E somebody said its T due to the reason: FSH and LH show nocturnal decline in levels. What's your opinion?

    Paper 1 Q 21 LH
    A. is required for normal corpus luteum survival.
    My ans: T somebody think it was F. What's your opinion?

    Paper 1 Q 24 B-HCG
    A. is not produced by the decidua
    E. has no influence upon the production of oestrogens by the placenta.
    My ans: T somebody think it was F. What's your opinion?

    Paper 1 Q 31 Oestradiol- 17B
    B. vasodilates the uterine artery
    My ans: F somebody think it was T. What's your opinion?

    Paper 1 Q 32 The germination of tetanus spores in a wound is inhibited by
    T a-tissue trauma
    T b-oxygen
    F c-injection of antitoxin
    T d-injection of toxoid
    T e-removal of devitalised tissue
    For c,d I am not sure with the answer. Somebody teach me?

    33-Proteolytic organisms are secreted by following organisms
    T a-Neisseria Meningitidis
    F b-Salmonella typhi
    T c-Streptococcus pyogenes
    F d-Mycobacterium tuberculosis
    T e-Clostridium Perfringens( Welchii)
    For a,e I am not sure with the answer. Somebody teach me?

    34-CMV
    Fa-is an adenovirus
    Tb-may be cultured readily in cell free media
    Tc-is a cause of cerebral calcification
    Td-causes haemolytic anaemia in neonate
    Te-may be transmitted in saliva
    For b, My ans: T somebody think it was F. What's your opinion?

    41-Following antibiotcs are usually effective against Pseudomona Aeuroginosa
    Fa-Cephradine
    Fb-Amoxycillin
    Tc-carbenicillin
    Td-gentamicin
    Fe-trimethoprim
    For d , My ans: T somebody think it was F. What's your opinion?

    48-Concerning heparins
    F a-heparin is synthesised in lungs
    Tb-antithrombin III is necessary for standard heparins to exert their anticoagulant effect
    Tc-factor X is inhibited by low molecular weight heparins
    Td-Low mol wt. heparins have a longer half life than standard heparins
    Fe-penicillins potentiate the action of low mol. wt. heparins
    For a, My ans: F somebody think it was T. What's your opinion?

    49-The following statistical statements are correct-
    Fa-in the normal distribution,the value of mode is 1.73 times the median
    Fb-in a distribution skew to the right,the mean lies to the left of median
    Tc-in the series- 2;7;5;2;3;2;5;8, the mode is 2
    Fd-student’s ‘t’ test is designed to correct for skew distribution
    Te-the chi squared testmay be used when data are not normally distributed
    not sure with the answer e. pls comment if you have a different answer

    germination of tetanus spores is inhibited by oxygen as clostridium tetani is anaerobe

    tissue trauma with dead tissue being there can allow germination of spores
    injection of anti-toxin and toxoid will inhibit the germination although we do not use anti-toxin that often and tetanus toxiod provides protection for 10 years

    removal of devitalised tissue can inhibit the germination

    Paper 1 Q 32 The germination of tetanus spores in a wound is inhibited by
    Fa-tissue trauma
    T b-oxygen
    T c-injection of antitoxin
    T d-injection of toxoid
    T e-removal of devitalised tissue
    For c,d I am not sure with the answer. Somebody teach me?
