[dua_frank] dunno
[samantha] criothyroidectomy ?
[dua_frank] oops
[dua_frank] right
[dua_frank] cricothyroidectomy
[dua_frank] got confused there a minute
[megs] its ..endotracheal intubation
[dua_frank] thats a contraindication to ETI megs, isn't it?
[megs] u may think that ...
[megs] therefore i raised it dua
[dua_frank] the book says that :(
[ash] why megs
[megs] there is a q in uw...
[ash] hmmm
[megs] they say u can intubate without extension of neck
[dua_frank] oh
[dua_frank] thanks megs
[megs] lying flat ...
[samantha] thanx megs
[dua_frank] its conflicting to what kaplan says though
[dua_frank] what blood would you give if you wanted to give immediate transfusion?
[megs] o negative
[samantha] o neg
[dua_frank] right
[dua_frank] what drugs do you give to a patient of trauma with loss of consiousness immediately?
wakejefe has joined subroom: USMLE_Step_1
[megs] dua i didnt get the q
[megs] can u tell more
[megs] mannitol to teduce ict???
[samantha] cortisol or epi?
wakejefe has left the chat.
[samantha] sorry wrong
[dua_frank] what are the 3 most probably reasons for loss of consciousness?
[dua_frank] in trauma or otherwise?
[samantha] in trauma?
[dua_frank] its hypoglycemia, opiate intoxication and wernickes
[dua_frank] right?
[dua_frank] and these are reversible
[megs] intracraniel h rrahge
[dua_frank] so you can always give dextrose, thiamine and naloxone
[dua_frank] no harm
[samantha] i thought trauma pt
[dua_frank] after you have the patient stabilized, what kind of tests would you order?
[megs] do umean dua in a pt of truma with unconciousness u should give these drugs???
[megs] *) *) *)
[dua_frank] sammy, trauma could have resulted even with those 3 reasons
[dua_frank] yeah megs
[ash] megs thats what kaplan says
[dua_frank] trial drugs
[ash] but i have a doubt
skidoc42 has left the chat.
david100 has joined subroom: USMLE_Step_3
[megs] i agree that with unconcious pt...u give that
[samantha] ok thanx dua
[ash] what if it is a hyperosmolar coma?
[dua_frank] no harm except sometimes there might be reversal and a patient may become conscious
[ash] then dextrose will make it worse
[megs] but unconcious with thrauma..think about..other cause
[dua_frank] ash hehe you always take past history, diabetic or not,thats the first thign you ask
[samantha] yes u think of injury as the cause dua
[ash] dua what if there is unconscious pt on the road
[ash] blood should be sent immediately for analysis esp for glucose
[dua_frank] i asked that question to my professor once ash, and he told me that giving 50 ml of dextrose to a HODC patient will not harm him but might be life saving to a diabetic hypoglycemic coma patient
[dua_frank] because hypoglycemic coma is more common than Hyperosmolar coma
[ash] oh ok thanks dua
[samantha] agree dua
[ash] i really had that doubt
[megs] agree dua
[dua_frank] ofcourse after the blood works come, you can always stop dextrose and give insulin
[ash] right
[samantha] life saving comes first
[dua_frank] right
[megs] pt with head truma looses conciousness what will be next step???
[dua_frank] ABCs
[megs] after that???
[ash] ct?
[dua_frank] imaging
[megs] yes
david100 has left the chat.
[dua_frank] yeah ct
[ash] what if a convex shadow?
[megs] if ct shows lenticular haematoma whats dx???
[dua_frank] epidural
[samantha] epi dural he
[ash] hehe megs same question
[megs] yup
[dua_frank] lol
[samantha] subdural hema
[ash] right samantha
[dua_frank] epi is concave?
[ash] subdural is right
[dua_frank] i always get confused
[ash] yes dua
[ash] yeah me too
[samantha] subdural has semilunar
[megs] epi is convex like lens
[samantha] agree megs
[megs] subdural is semilunar ...cresent shaped
[ash] subdural is convex like lens
[dua_frank] ash asked convex
[ash] acc. to kaplan
[ash] epi is concave
[megs] disagree ash
[megs] its opp
[samantha] epi is convex ash
[megs] epi is convex like lense...acc to kaplan...
[ash] someone please check kaplan
[ash] i am reading it now and in my book it says subdural is convex
[megs] its on page 3 right in front of me
[ash] and epidural is concave
[megs] dua , sammy u help pl
[dua_frank] checking
[ash] megs probably my book is old but in 2 places it is saying subdural lentiform and convex
[megs] ash lets clarify..with 3 rd opinian...its better to that
[ash] megs i am searching on the net.there it says what u r saying
[megs] so that our doubt will be clear
[dua_frank] ollections tend to conform to the shape of the brain and the cranial vault, exhibiting concave inner margins and convex outer margins
[dua_frank] this is subdural hematoma
[dua_frank] see dura is thick so anything below that will push the brain in and collect there
[dua_frank] so the inner margin will be concave and outer convex
[megs] old pt severe alcoholic came with mental detioration since past few weeks..whats dx???
[ash] well i checked on the net ,it says chronic subdural hematoma is convex and acute is concave
[megs] thanx dua
[dua_frank] oops opposite
[dua_frank] concave inner and convex outer
[dua_frank] ash *)
[dua_frank] be right back
[dua_frank] ack
[dua_frank] i mean back
[dua_frank] not ack
[ash] megs if your book is new then i am ready to blindly follow it.what does it say?
[dua_frank] lol ash
[dua_frank] wernickes megs
[ash] well guys kaplan is the bond
[dua_frank] thiamine deficiency
[dua_frank] or korsakoffs with confusion
[megs] dua its chronic subdural haematoma
[dua_frank] :O why?
[dua_frank] coz he doesn't remember the trauma?
[dua_frank] why can't it be wernickes megs?

[dua_frank] thats true too uni
[dua_frank] we always gave peep to all flail chests
[dua_frank] don't know what kaplan says about that
[dua_frank] its an effort for the lungs to expand so we have to give forced respiration which is peep
[megs] ok checked ..if respiratory insufficiency then mechanical ventilation
[megs] thanx dua
