    I suggest to review past paper in the last day before the exam.
    Below many q from another forum about 2007 M
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------
    From Onexamination:
    Copper containing IUDs:
    F should be changed every year
    F have a high incidence of actinomycoces colonization than plastic devices
    T Cause a relative increased in ectopic pregnancy
    T have been implicated as a cause of fatal infection in pregnancies
    F do not cause menorrhagia

    Comments:
    Inert devices can be left in place until the menopause, but copper devices need renewal every 3-5 years, depending on the make, because of the gradual absorption of copper. Copper IUCDs produce local concentrations of copper salts which apparently give some protection against bacterial contamination. Pelvic infection with actinomyces organisms is most likely with a plastic device that has been in situ for some years. While the rate of intrauterine pregnancy is reduced, that of ectopics is not. Hence, there is a relative increase in ectopic pregnancy after IUCD insertion. If an IUCD is left in place there is a slight risk of intrauterine infection, preterm labour and antepartum haemorrhage, but most pregnancies are uncomplicated and the device is delivered with the placenta. Increased menstrual loss may be caused by increased fibrinolytic activity which occurs round the IUCD. The progestogen intrauterine system (IUS) reduces menstrual flow and often dysmenorrhoea.

    Which of the following is/are true concerning MRI?
    A It involves ionizing radiation (False)
    B Has no recognised side effects on the foetus (True)
    C The pregnant mother should be turned to her left side during scanning
    (True)
    D Tissue with high hydrogen concentrations are difficult to distinguish False)
    E Blood vessels appear white on scanning (False)

    Comments:
    Water is a molecule composed of hydrogen and oxygen atoms. The nuclei of the hydrogen atoms are able to act as microscopic compass needles. When the body is exposed to a strong magnetic field, the nuclei of the hydrogen atoms are directed into order - stand "to attention". When submitted to pulses of radio waves, the energy content of the nuclei changes. After the pulse, a resonance wave is emitted when the nuclei return to their previous state. The small differences in the oscillations of the nuclei are detected. By advanced computer processing, it is possible to build up a three-dimensional image that reflects the chemical structure of the tissue, including differences in the water content and in movements of the water molecules. This results in a very detailed image of tissues and organs in the investigated area of the body. In this manner, pathological changes can be documented.

    good effort by shin :)
    but few question got modifications eg;
    nitrous oxide synthesised by macrophages
    naloxone antiemitic effect
    drugs contraindicated in breast feeding
    drugs causing renal impairment
    ultasound
    mri
    statistics quit difficult all definitions
    rna
    pre implantation diagnosis
    for good result one should not wastes time
    only past paper and tim chard is worth all others nothing i subscribed on examination :( which just wasted my revision time better i would have spent on pastpaper revision becuse of that i did silly mistakes in those answers i was knowing rt also :roll:
    still i cant predict if i check my 4 stems answer some3 stems correct how to calculate because we r not sure about rest :?:

    hello....among the new subjects taht appear in march 2007

    fibrocystic disease of thr breast...in paper 2 , breast anatomy and breast from endocrine function (in paper 1..)...ie 3 qs we about the breast
    levator ani its attachnment and its coverings
    endometrial carcinoma
    adenomyosis
    about measuring the arterial blood pressure and its methods
    interleukin 2
    prenatal implantation genetic diagnosis
    menstural cycle in paper 1 and 2

    the repeated questions are present in the past paper u can find them but there were many new questions specially in paper 1

    xyz- Guest

    i passed part 1

    i finally passed part 1 ahahhaha
    5 attempts and finally!!! thanks guys!!

    i realised a few mcq books were a waste of time especially kaldon shariff

    i passed with the past papers & and onexamination.com alone

    tim chard helps a little but i would say only 20 %
    chamberlain was waste of time as it has too much detail

    compilation of onexamination questions are from there too, at a cheaper price instead of subscribing for only limited time period only!
    onexamination really ripping of our monney

    I normally do not print out the pdf files, so would not have known this until I really wanted to use them

    I am sure that Linda will make the Elements versions available to us Elements fans

    Thank you
