While running triage at a Pharmacy, you see that an emergency room doctor has escribed in a perscription for Bactrim DS for your regular patient Mr. Smith. Mr. Smith also takes Coumadin. Why can Mr. Smith NOT take Bactrim DS?
Coumadin and Bactrim DS seriously interact with one another. The Bactrim DS can drastically alter the effects of the Coumadin, spiking or dropping the patients INR levels. Using warfarin together with sulfamethoxazole may increase the risk of bleeding, especially if you are elderly or have kidney or liver impairment. You may need more frequent monitoring of your prothrombin time or INR by your doctor to safely use both medications. The proper course of action would be to contact the Emergency room Physician and recommend a changed in medication.
In Dante's inferno, Who was Icarus? How does Dante’s fear compare with Icarus’s fear?
Icarus flew with wings made of wax and feathers; he flew too near the sun and the wax melted. Dante’s fear as he approaches the pit is equal to Icarus’s as he approached the earth in his fall.
A student is reading a book, and they come across the word heliogram. They don't know what it means, but they do know that heliocentric means having the sun at the center. What strategy would the student use and why?
The student will use context clues, because knowing the context will be important in understanding what a heliogram is.
