    ciproflox shortens duration of travellers diarrh. Should never give loperamide for infective diarrhoea.
  10. guest Dr A

    guest Dr A Guest

    antibiotic is recommended for bloody diarrhea ..if a person is having frequent traveller diarrhea wud he take antibiotic everytime .. n for any traveller diarrhea antibiotic is never the first line .. first try conservative methods .. only if it persist n the patient gets worse .. then go for antibiotic .. i still go with loperamide

  21. Guest

    Guest Guest

    in paracetamol toxicity he asked about the initial management not the best management , so that i think acetylcytiene is right
  22. Guest

    Guest Guest

    24 hours post ingestion with derranged clotting,increased creatinine and confused the intial mangement is refferal if if you delay by giving acetylcytine the patient would die.Giving acetylsytine shouuld be your second priority.

    Alport has three mode of inheretances Xlinked
    Autosomal recessive
    Autosomal dominent

    In the scenario it was x likned
  25. Guest

    Guest Guest

    Question 2 above

    It was SVT with LBBB--- not VT so answer should be Adensosine
  26. Doctor Who

    Doctor Who Guest

    I agree that delayed paracetamol presentation first action is to give N-Acetylcysteine.

    Having treated this scenario myself when you phone King's the most important marker for them is Arterial pH.

    It then takes time for them to assess the case and look for a donor if the pt needs a transplant. You also have to organize transport.

    You could have saved some hepatocytes already by giving N-Acetylcysteine, so it should always be the FIRST response.

    This is just my opinion! It's the RCP's that really counts.
  27. duckgirl

    duckgirl Guest

    Alports was described as XLR hence no male-male transmission and all girls will be carriers. Ans was <5% for boys and >90% girl carriage
  28. Doctor Who

    Doctor Who Guest

    Agreed with duckgirl's Alports answer.

    Also agree with Adenosine - I though the the ECG was SVT.

    Also agree with steroid cream SE - thinning of skin.

    Another question of a unconscious girl found to have high pcm level on admission 2 days later of previous admission. Immediate investigation blood glucose as low b.m usually after 2 days of pcm toxicity.

    What will be the change in the meds of a diabetic with high glucose and creatinine 130...stop metformin or add gliclazide/sulfonyl urea

    description with plaque and ulcer on temple...squamous cell ca

    photograph of face lesion was melanoma d/d sq cell ca, granuloma

    lateral cxr was it achalasia or calcified aorta

    CT was it foreign body in oesophagus. Pt wheezy

    Pt returned from kenya low platelet symptomatic treatment

    12 days post meat pie diarrhoea...salmonella/e coli c. perfingens
  30. Doctor Who

    Doctor Who Guest

    I remember a picture of skin mole - I went for Malignant Melanoma.

    The man with the lesion on his forehead (wearing glasses) I thought was a Basal Cell Ca.

    The unconscious girl after paracetamol OD - I picked ABG (best indicator of liver failure/imminent death).

    Every time I check these threads the exam just seems tougher :( You could make an argument for so many of the answers!
  31. Guest

    Hi Guys...

    Hot moment going i right?

    anyway...nice to see u all with productive discussions.

    I am late, coz still i am in a hallucination.
    I couldnt forget the horror moment of my 2nd part of this exam.
    and at the same time,i am depressed.
    Coz..this was my 2nd attempt.
    My last attempt was far better than this time.
    Last time i was almost sure to pass....but bad luck.
    and this time...i am not expecting to pass.

    I could recall a lot of ques but I found most of my answers are being wrong.
    Now a days..i am so afraid of my upcoming result that i dont think i can bear the load of another bad reasult...but i have to do that.....pray for me......

    hi , friends i think discussion is going so weak & slowly what happened ????
  35. Guest

    Guest Guest

    Many of us here are in trauma after the exam, that's why the discussion here is slow. The test might look simple to some but in fact the answers are very tricky to choose from all looks possible.
  36. My first attempt.

    Very disappointing.

    All the reading from Sharma, onexamination didn't help one bit.

    Should have just sat for it blindly without any reading.

    No difference anyway.
  37. guest Dr A

    guest Dr A Guest

    hey guys ..dont be so disappointed .. lets see wat the exam result turns out to be
    yes u are right ...the exam ques were nuthing like wat we saw in sanjay sharma or on examination or pastest
    dnt knw abt master class.. if it helped or not
    the discussion is slow coz some of us cant recall all the ques ..
  38. Guest

    Guest Guest

    The reason why the older books and websites do not help is because the rcp is changing the emphasis of the exam
    They are placing a lot of emphasis on basics and practical investigation and management as you can see from the questions being asked
  39. guest 008

    guest 008 Guest

    there was a pateing with wheeze n dysphagi ..n Ct of chest showing esopahgus n trachea ..wat it was ???foriegn body ? carcinoma ? or wat ??
    there was also a history of weight loss .
  40. I put esophageal Ca as the answer cos it was progressive and associated with weight loss.

    I don;t know what the CT scan was trying to show though.
  41. CT scan for young man with hemoptysis and died - what was it trying to show?

    Patients with CVID often have a history of recurrent infections.

    * The recurrent infections commonly affect the upper and lower respiratory tracts. Patients come to medical attention due to infectious diseases at the time of onset, the most common being otitis media, diarrhea, pneumonia, and sinusitis.10 Almost all have acute and recurrent infections.
    * Persistent diarrhea and malabsorption caused by Giardia lamblia infection occur in patients with CVID.

    5. Lady with easy bruising, menorrhagia, prolonged PTT and pancytopenia.

    Available answers: SLE, Antiphospholipid Syndrome, von Willbrand's Ds,
    I think it was Primary Antiphospholipid Sndrome.

    Note: Primary antiphospholipid syndrome is diagnosed in patients demonstrating the clinical and laboratory criteria without other recognized autoimmune disease. Secondary antiphospholipid syndrome is diagnosed in patients with other autoimmune disorders such as SLE.

    I think the chap was not able to open his left eyes and eventually in A&E was able to do so
    # Frontal sinusitis can cause pain just above eyebrows, and forehead may be tender to touch.
    # Maxillary sinusitis can cause upper jaw, teeth and cheeks to ache and may be mistaken for toothache.
    # Ethmoid sinusitis can cause pain around eyes and the sides of nose.
    # Sphenoid sinusitis can cause pain around eyes, at the top of head or in your temples.
