    Hi Everyone,

    I was just wondering that how should be the pattern of study from now onwards to pass AMC after looking at the recent november recalls?

    It seems that it is no more a good idea to rely completely on the past recalls. What do you think?

    a. vertical
    b. blood transfusion
    c. tatooing

    Regarding this Q, the worldwide transmission is highest for Vertical for HBV. They have just twisted the question.

    What I am planning to do now for the next exam is to take all the topics that they have been asking questions and study the topics not the questions.

    What do the others think?

    Hi Eladenana,

    You are right. I guess the best way is to read the topics thoroughly and dont get stuck if a question is twisted.

    Nov 07 exam

    Studying in Topics is a good idea. I guess, also it is better to focus more on your weak subjects.

    Another question on the exam, correct me if I'm wrong, is a case primary ammenorrhea in a 18 y/o with normal sexual characteristic s and short vagina. I think it's Rokitanski Kutser Hauser Syndrome, If not I guess just study all the Mullerian duct abnormalities.

    studying topics for AMC

    yes, I do agree wthat you should focus more on the topics rather than the questions themselves because frankly, we really can't recall the whole question because they're very long. A lot of these recalls might mislead people. They're still good to study and familiarize yourself with, but don't rely on them solely.

    I found that reading through www.australiandoctor.com.au gave some insight to how things are done here. I would recommend reading through the "how-to-treat" section. They're quite lengthy, but they are more of problem-based and symptoms based rather than just on one topic. Besides, they are really must know.

    Well, I'm still studying a lot because I'm not too sure about my exam. Wish us luck that we pass!

    some answers to the questions

    1. Question about a deeply tanned muscular surfer guy, past history of steroid use, came in to hospital hypotensive (80/50), hyponatremic. (Couldn’t remember all the other details - sorry)

    a. give normal saline
    b. give hydrocortisone
    c. give adrenalin

    > I answered give hydrocortisone/ IV steroids because I thought he was a case of Conn's Syndrome/ Adrenal Insufficiency
    Some one answered the above question but my search has found which I want to share with you all. Hope to be in touch with you all, as I am doing my exam in march and now looking forward to the discussions with you people

    Conn’s syndrome=Adrenal secreting aldosterone….in this patient’s presentation is hypertensive and hypokalemic. The above picture is not representing Conn’s syndrome. In this situation one has to asses the degree of hyponatraemia which may be due to adrenal crisis which require rapid replacement of sodium then hydrocortisone. IV saline should be infused as required to normalise haemodynamic indices. In severe hyponatraemia (<125mmol/l) caution should be taken to avoid too rapid normalisation, which risks pontine demylination (D pg # 784,783). I think above sitation could be due to Adrenal insufficiency. The most important thing here is Hyponatraemia. what do you think. Any comments are welcome.

    a. vertical
    b. blood transfusion
    c. tatooing
    d. sexual
    For this question I did my search on internet. Particularily WHO website.
    In high prevalence areas such as China and South East Asia, transmission during childbirth is most common, although in other areas of high endemicity such as Africa, transmission during childhood is a significant factor.[23] The prevalence of chronic HBV infection in areas of high endemicity is at least 8%.

    3. Long history/ description of a man with renal colic. What would in his history would make you consider an operative option?

    a. >5 mm stone in the ureter
    b. intermittent fever and chills
    When to consider operation in patient with renal colic: I think there should be some more history regarding patients presentation. Anyway here are some indications for intervention.
    • Obstructive anuria or severe infection (pyonephrosis) =emergency percutaneous mephrostomy only.
    • Severe pain or solitary kidney=urgent ESWL (extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy) or surgery.
    • Pain and failure of the stone to move=elective ESWL or surgery.
    Anyhow the correct option is A.
