A 26 yo M was trail running and fell after "landing funny on a rock" while running downhill. He now reports ankle pain and difficulty walking. What questions should you ask him during inspection and prior to palpation?
OPQRST and SAMPLE. OPQRST: When did the pain start? What makes the pain better or worse? Can you describe the pain (sharp, stabbing, dull, aching)? Does the pain stay in one place or does it radiate? Can you describe the pain on a 1-10 scale, with 10 being the worse pain of your life? And timing: has the pain changed since it initially started? SAMPLE: sign/symptoms, allergies, medications, past pertinent medical history (does the patient have a history of ankle or running injuries?), last oral intake, events leading up to present trauma (have the patient verbalize what happened prior, during, and after his fall)
One of the liver's many duties is to make protein, because of this, what cell differences can you foresee in a liver cell versus other cells?
Ribosomes build proteins. Ribosome subunits are made in the nucleolus. Therefore, because the liver makes a lot of proteins, liver cells will have a larger nucleolus and many ribosomes.
If there was an internal carotid artery aneurysm within the sinus cavity, which nerve is most likely affected and what other nerves may also be affected?
CN VI since the middle cerebral artery is adjacent to it, but also lining the edges of the cavernous sinus are CN III, IV, V1, and V2.
