    integration

    Advertisements



    This is a typical usmle integrations exam question, so you have an idea how they will ask stuff.

    You have a 66 year old man that has been suferring from prostate problems for the last year, he was having trouble emptying the bladder but because of the medication his taking he can empty his bladder, today they call you because he is in ICU, his son says that in the past month he was forgetting the names of his grandchildren and forgetting to feed the dog.

    What complication might have made him, go to the ICU?

    A- testicular torsion
    B- lumbar cancer
    C- Sammy Sosa
    D- Cardiovascular problem

    why even bother with the obvious. Just know where you are need it and where you can help the most.

    d]cardiovascular problems......the patient must have taken prazosin/terazosin/doxazocon....which are selective alpha blockers....may cause..hypotension or tachycardia ......

    just trying to co-relate......is it correct?

    For BPH the treatment can be:
    *finastride[5 alpha reductase inhibitor]
    OR
    *alpha blockers
    OR
    *TURP

    Distrators in one way so you choose Pick disease, or Alzheima, or normal pressure Hydrocephalus, but I forgot to include them on the answers

    Shisha you are doing very good, that its how you need to think for the exams.

    Also remember that you will have a autonomic response when you have a full bladder, and that can affect indirectlly the heart, and if the guy is forgeting to take the meds, he is not urinating.
