diphyllobothrium latumB12 deficiency megaloblastic anemia
spur cellssevere cirrhosis macrocytic anemia (due to decreased cholesterol in RBCs)
massive splenomegalyCML, myelofibrosis, mono CMV and EBV
decreased myeloid/erythroid ratio?reticulocytosis! seen in hemolytic anemias

universal RBC recipientAB
universal plasma donorAB
jaundice in 1st 24 hours after birth?ABO incompatibility
spherocytes in cord blood smear?ABO incompatibility

+ direct coombs test on fetal cord bloodABO incompatibility

diagnostic test for PNHflow cytometry for CD 55 and CD 59
heinz bodiesG6PD deficiency
bite cellsG6PD deficiency --> heinz bodies that have been chewed by splenic macrophage
how to differentiate between G6PD deficiency and pyruvate kinase deficiency hemolytic anemia?check for NADPH--> if there is NADPH, then it's pyruvate kinase deficiency
blue skin in cyanosisdeoxyhemoglobin causes this (even seen in polycythemia bc hb not well saturated)
labs in polycythemia veraincreased hct, increased plasma volume, normal O2 sat, splenomegaly, normal or decreased EPO
polycythemia associated complicationsclots leading to things like amarosis fugax and budd chiari
dehydration causes what kind of polycythemia?relative polycythemia due to the decreased ECF --> relative increase in hot
hypercalcemia in multiple myeloma mechanism?B cells secrete IL1 that works to activate osteoclasts --> lytic bone lesions
how does waldenstrom's macroglobulinemia differ from multiple myeloma?W has IgM production (instead of IgG), so there is RBC agglutination (rather than rouleaux). This causes hyperviscocity and primary amyloid
what enzyme does lead block?Aminolevulinate dehydratase and ferrokelitase


Question Answer
what do thrombolytics do?convert plasminogen to plasmin
how to monitor thrombolytics?D dimer
warfarin mechanisminhibits epoxide reductase (decreases gamma carboxylation of II, VII, IX, X, C, S)
warfarin adminoral
warfarin solubilitylipid --> so binds to albumin and can easily get displaced by other drugs!
monitor warfarinPT and ESR
what happens when you first administer warfarin?initially, there is pro-coagulant bc of C and S action --> therefore give heparin with it at first
heparin actionincreases antithrombin III and blocks factor II mainly
monitor heparin?PTT
kinetics of heparin?0-order
heparin administration?IV
monitor LMWHXa levels
LMWH admin?subcutaneous
LMWH namesenoxaparin and dalteparin
antithrombin III analogueslepirudin, bivalirudin, argatroban
what do antithrombin III analogues treat?HIT
aspirinirreversible nonselective COX inhibitor --> decreases TXA2 --> decreased platelet aggregation
dipyridamoledecreases platelet adhesion
Clopidogrelblocks ADP
ticlodipineblocks ADP
side effect of neutropeniaticlodipine
block IIbIIIaabciximab, tirofiban, ebtifibitide
antidote for warfarinvitamin K or fresh frozen plasma
antidote for heparinprotamine sulfate
antidote for tPAaminocaproic acid
