July 21, 2018

Intro

In this episode we dissect the following practice question with Dr. Brian Radvansky from MedSchoolTutors. 

Question Stem

A 67-year old man presents to the Emergency Department with a 2-day history of progressively worsening cough. He has a history of poorly-controlled hypertension, 30 pack-year smoking history, well-controlled diabetes, and a STEMI 4 years prior. He complains of mild sharp chest pain while coughing, some shortness of breath while walking around his apartment, and lightheadedness when standing up. Vital signs on arrival are HR 114, BP 100/55, RR 26, T 101.9 ℉, SpO2 86% on 4 L nasal cannula. Physical exam is significant for general ill appearance, decreased breath sounds in the right lower chest, tachypnea, tachycardia, and use of accessory muscles of breathing. His is somewhat alert and oriented only to person and place. ABG shows pH 7.29/pCO2 60/pO2 69. EKG shows Q-waves in the inferior leads.

Which of the following is most likely to improve the patient’s clinical status?

  1. Dobutamine
  2. Furosemide
  3. Doxycycline
  4. Vancomycin and Piperacillin-Tazobactam

Practical Question Strategy—Fever and Oliguria in a 24-Year-Old Female with Brian Radavansky from MedSchoolTutors | (USMLE Question Dissection)

July 7, 2018

Intro

In this episode we dissect the following practice question with Dr. Brian Radvansky from MedSchoolTutors. 

Question Stem

A 24-year old female with no past medical history presents to her primary care doctor complaining of a fever. 

The fever started two days ago, though she was unable to take temperatures at home and has just felt “hot.” Review of systems is positive for fatigue, arthralgia, and decreased urine output in the last day or so. 

She recently completed a course of trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole for an uncomplicated urinary tract infection. Vital signs are temperature 101.3F, heart rate 104 bpm, blood pressure of 114/74, and respiratory rate of 18. Physical exam is significant for a diffuse, non-pruritic maculopapular rash on the torso, but is otherwise normal. Lab studies show the following:

Sodium 141 mEq/L
Potassium 4.4 mEq/L
Chloride 99 mEq/L
Bicarbonate 23 mEq/L
BUN 30 mg/dl
Creatinine 2.1 mg/dl
Glucose 102 mg/dl

Urinalysis shows pyuria w/many eosinophils and no bacteria. What is the most likely etiology of this patient’s chemistry abnormalities?

A.  Decreased renal perfusion secondary to dehydration
B.  Post-obstructive nephropathy
C.  Granulomatosis with polyangiitis (Wegener’s disease)
D.  Sloughing of tubular epithelium into the tubule
E.  Allergic immune response in the renal interstitium
