    As far i can remember that question .....the old man who see the dream of that fire accident where he lost his friend....i thought that losing his friend in an accident caused him a mental trauma which caused him later vivid dream of that accident which according to definition is in favour of post trauma stress...

    THANX

    dear dr.manoj

    you are correct regarding this point ,
    it is so obvious that stress means physical & mental .

    but there was a case i read somewhere , as follow

    a lady present 8 months after her husband death , with depressed mood, can not enter his room , and leave his cloths , as they were before his death , and always think about him .....

    ( forgive me for bad re-making of the scenario )

    the choices as i remember

    1-post traumatic stress.
    2-abnormal grief .
    3-poor adjustment disorders.
    4-depression
    5-?

    the answere was POOR ADJUSTMENT DISORDER ,not abnormal grief

    so this is my idea <<<<< ie fireman case, is rather close to this lady scenario ...

    what do u think ???
  3. RE

    Dear Dr Manoj and dear all

    Thanks for your input concerning achalasia.
    However I do not recall the question as you mentioned it, it did not say anything about intermittent dysphagia in both solids and liquids (which in this case the correct answer would be diffuse oesophageal spasm: oxford handbook page 232). Anyway the most likely case of seing a fluid level behind the heart in real life in patients with for example GORD... is a sliding hernia (one of the the commonest causes...)

    As far as the answer for the post-traumatic stress disorder I totally agree with Dr Manoj. The answer the RCP must look from us is post-traumatic stress disorder to his mental trauma...
  4. Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, PTSD, is an anxiety disorder that can develop after exposure to a terrifying event or ordeal in which grave physical harm occurred or was threatened. Traumatic events that may trigger PTSD include violent personal assaults, natural or human-caused disasters, accidents, or military combat
    People with PTSD have persistent frightening thoughts and memories of their ordeal and feel emotionally numb, especially with people they were once close to. They may experience sleep problems, feel detached or numb, or be easily startled

    dear all

    thanx for your excellent discussion , as it is so useful ..

    ok , regarding that case of fireman , it still carries 2 possibilites

    the post traumatic stress dis & poor adjusment disorder

    hope you read a little here

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Adjustment_disorder#Stressors

    any way , the right answer is in RCP pocket :lol:


    thanksssssssssssssssssssss

    WOW...
    GREAT DISCUSION GUYS....
    THANX TO SEP 2008 AND MRCP1 CANDIDATE...
    REALLY ALL THE DISCUSSION DO HELP...WE CAN DEBATE TO IMPROVE OUR PERFORMANCE BUT PLS NEVER TAKE IT TO HEART IF ANY OF MY WORDS DO HEART U....

    ANYWAY...MY ANS WAS ACLASIA AND POST TRAUMA STRESS...I AM ALMOST SURE ABOUT ACLASIA...BUT AFTER READING THE WIKI PIDIA NOTES SUGGESTED BY SEP 2008...NOW I AM IN FAVOUR OF POST ADJUSTMENT...BUT THE CHANCE OF POST TRAUMA STILL CANT BE IGNORED.

    CAN ANYONE MAKE ME CONFIRM ABOUT POS FAECAL OBT...CAECUM OR SIGMOID.....AND ALSO LADY FEARING OF BIRDS....SPECIFIC PHOBIA OR PARANOID SCHIZO PHRENIA..

    I AM ASTONISHED...I THOUGHT I WAS WELL PREPARED 4 THE EXAM BUT EVEN NOW I AM CONFUSED ABOUT MORE THAN 20 QUES...I COULDNT STILL FIND THE ANSWER....WE CAN KNOW WE PASSED OR FAILED BUT WE COULDNT KNOW THE REAL ANSWER ACCORDING TO RCP OF THOSE CONFUSING QUES....

    dear Dr.manoj .

    yeh , we are colleagues in the same field , so we should help each other, and this is a pure scientific debate, nothing personal ,
    i could be right & you 2 , and this is medicine , :p

    ok , regarding the

    1- it was 95% achalasia.
    2-about the ca large bowel , it was ca caecum,

    can you remember the scenario ? i almost forgot it . :roll:

    3- LADY FEARING OF BIRDS , it was parnoid schizo ,
    as the scenario mentioned in the end , that she felt safe as she was hiding in her husband socks , :shock:

    is it true the results are out??
    i read a post on rxpg that what we need to do is to apply for MRCP-1 in jan 2009.. (apply overseas)

    if u have passed, they display a message that u cant reappear in this exam as u have passed..

    IS IT RELIABLE?

    Results

    The result is not declared yet. It ll be some time next week. Most probably end of week. You'd still get the option of apply for the exam overseas on your "My MRCP" page

    omar alfarsi Guest

    I also tried to apply for the MRCP1 overseas icon and the reply is that I passed part 1 in the last 7 years and I can't re-apply. I really don't know what it means in reality as the results are still being prosessed, but possibly one of the skilled MRCP veterans can enlighten us with facts and the myths of this technique.... :shock:

    mokhles Guest

    i apply for ist part they r asking me to send cheque by 512 pounds to send
    i think i have failed
    any one tried this can tell me is that true or the results not yet done
  15. Dear all

    Thanks for the scientific debate and ideas.
    I am not sure at all if it was poor adjustment disorder because reading the wikipedia it clearly does not say that it is expressed with NIGHTMARES.

    It was another question about dysphagia on liquids and solids which the answer was achalasia, which I put.
    The question with the fluid level behind heart was a different one guys.
    Do you recall that?

    Diabetes in pregnancy

    Hypoglycaemic therapy
    Consider hypoglycaemic therapy for women with gestational diabetes:
     if lifestyle changes do not maintain blood glucose targets over a period of 1–2 weeks
    If hypoglycaemic therapy is required:
     regular insulin, the rapid acting insulin analogues aspart and lispro, and/or the oral hypoglycaemic agents metformin3 and glibenclamide4 may be considered.

    Dear doctors...

    Results r not yet released...the option in the my mrcp page is unreliable...i tried for it and they replied i cant apply as i passed part 1 within last 7 year....

    But i think we should not believe this...is there anyone who apllied in ihis my mrcp account and the application is granted....

    Yes...dr.arif...it is becoming tough day by day to wait for the result.....this last period is for pray for each other...i wish all of us having a positive result.....Best of luck
  18. Guest

    Guest Guest

    I just tried to re-apply for part 1 (pressing the 'Apply (Overseas)' button) and it said I'd passed in the last 7 years and could not re-apply.

    BUT I also tried to apply for part 2 (pressing the 'Apply (UK)' button) and it said I was already entered to the 2008/03 Part 1 so couldn't enter part 2 2008/3.

    Anyone been able to progress with re-applying for part 1?

    mokhles Guest

    pressing apply overseas give me apply personal details and continue till the end
    am i failed
  21. dr_vikas

    dr_vikas Guest

    dont worry mokhles..
    i dont think so..

    u mean to say ur application gets accepted for mrcp-1 overseas jan,2009?
  22. Guest

    Guest Guest

    Who r having their application for 2009 accepted may not have their result added to the mrcp website database because they cant really add all the results by pressing one button,it does take tome to do for all those who appeared in exam,probably numbering in thousands thats why the status on website says results being processed.
  23. Guest

    Guest Guest

    mokhles -one guy previously had your problem but passed the exam ... So don't be disheartened .... But for those whom it says have passed the exam i guess (and hope) it must be true !!!

    Guest Guest

    dr .mokles

    i want to say one point for you .
    do not take this issue as bigger as its deserve.
    it is not the end of the world evev if you did not make it from your 1st try .

    as you said , hypertension & these stuff,
    this won`t be on your side ever.

    for me , i tried last may 2008 , i read for 2 months only
    i scored 60.5% and pass mark was 61%.

    so at the first i was really heart broken ,
    as then i was offered a good job place , if i would pass it ,

    so i will try again next jan 2009,
    and that`s all

    as the statsitics says that only third of doctors pass from their 1st try .
    while more than 2/3 pass from their 2nd try

    merci beacoup

    may god help us all....Eid Mubarok And Sharodiya Wishes
  29. mokhles

    dear docs.

    i know all of us , are on fire now , waiting for the results ,

    but just want to ask , i think all of us saw the 184 BOF , which was laid in this forum ,

    yet , many of us , found that there are at least 10 BOF , never shown up in our papers,

    so would you mind plz all , to share with us all , any BOF , u saw it came on ur paper & not appeared on the 184 BOF on this forum


    thanks :lol:
  31. omar afarsi

    omar afarsi Guest

    To be honest, my mind has frozen, I can't think of any BOF anymore. The only thing to say is that I have already started doing passmedicine again and that what we should do as we need to do it in all cases ( preparing for MRCP part 1 or 2) as it has taken a lot of time for the results to come back.All my friends who did their MRCS on the same day as us got their results today, while us are still waiting for whose gona be amongst the lucky top 1/3 of applicants.

    Happy eid and make duaa for all of us to pass.

    Guest Guest

    Dear Sep 2008,
    Actually my condition is as like as Dr.Omar..not in a condition to help u but if u go through all the post in this forum,u will find a lot of question which i didnt mention in the 184 questions of my paper....like...p wave association on ecg...and so on. if u need it too much,u pls go though the previous post but My advice is...no more BOF...just enjoy ur eid and pray to god for all of us...TO ME U ALL R NOW MY FAMILY...AS ALL DID SHARE THE SAME STRESS TOGETHER,

    Yes,My wife did appear MRCS 1st part on this 9th sep and just today She got the result ...Thanx god,She passed....

    I am trying to forget my stress for the upcoming 3 days before result...i am just spending time by enjoying movie and reading a lot of novels....These make me relax...so try something which make u relax...and be prepared for anything....Do u think that if I failed this time...my future is uncertain...Not that...On the contrary,I will study more ... :D ...actually I am trying a consolation for me....

    Take Care Guys...And make frequent post...anything u like...getting a new post from a friend relaxes a little...we should post more to relax each other...Bye

    results

    hello everybody
    i checked the trick at the website it tells me i have passed and need not apply
    what is this all about
    thanks
  34. sandstorm

    sandstorm Guest

    After much hesitation....and trepidation I too pressed the button and it tells me I've passed.. Given that the general consensus seems to be that if it says you've passed then you probably have...and if it doesn't then you may have failed...or the result hasn't been uploaded to the database yet, given all that I'm in a much better mood today.

    Does anyone know of someone who used the button trick and was told he passed....only to discover later that he'd failed?

    And a Eid Mubarak and best wishes to all "comrades in arms"...who fought the good fight on Sep 9, in the battle of the MRCP part 1 :) :lol:

    Guest Guest

    hi guys, i am really silly. i even don't know how to creat my online account. on page 1, they asked "have you previously applied for an mrcp (uk) examination?". i clicked "yes" since i took part 1 in sept. then the webpage has no response at all. so i pressed "enter" key. it came with page 2, i put my RCP number, date of birth and email, then webpage stuck there again. could not go to page 3. and i have not received a verification email to my email address. what to do? how long should i wait for the verfication email. i want to try to trick you guys mentioned. really nervous now. don't laugh at me because i don't know how to creat an account. i have no brain in my head now.

    dr mustaqeem Guest

    hello
    eid mubarak to all.kul o aam wa untum bakhair.
    the trick says unambigously you have passed mrcp 1 ,it will be a nightmare if its not true.
    for all who passed job well done, one who did not, best of luck, try harder dont give up, this is what i think
    study kalra
    do one exam at least twice
    do all PAST PAPERS from mrcpass.com as questions came word to word.
    basic science from easterbrook,i know its hard but try.
    this is what i will do if i fail.

    Guest Guest

    thank you so much guest

    yeh , this was one of the non mentioned BOF among the 184

    ,

    i think the 5th option was right ;

    As i could remember ;

    RESET THE PACEMAKER OR SOME THING ABOUT PREVIOUS PACE MAKER DATA

    PLZZZZZZZZ CAN ANY 1 REMEMBER

    Guest Guest

    dear doctors...
    Eid mubarok to u all...
    So...a tough situation we r passing through...
    Do u really think that applying online with the sentence that''u have passed part 1 mrcp in last 7 yr & may not reapply'' is dependable enough to be sure about pass....is there anyone who failed later though the application in thi sway was not accepted saying that u have passed....

    And i am also requesting the seniors who passed this exam before to make comment about this process of gaining result....trying too much to stay cool...but u know..Its impossible....

    :x :x
