IVDU and holosystolic murmur at left sternal bordertreat HF and replace trisc valve
Hypertrophicardiomyopathydx is echo (LV wall thicken and outflow obstruction)
Pulsus paradoxusfall of systolic BP >10 with inspiration (seen in cardiac tamponade)
Pulsus paradoxus MOAup inspiration * down pulm venous return, but the pressure gradient between L and R V is great enough to not see this normally, in cardiac tamponade the pressure gradient between RV and LV becomes more equal due to pericardial sac pressure becoming greater than LV * RV pushes into LV due to reduced pressure in LV * down CO and any sort of physiologic reduction in venous return to LV is more significant, hence pulsus paradoxus) AKA up pressure down LV preload * up PP

Question Answer
Bias introduced into a study when a clinician is aware of pt tx typeobservation bias
Screening detects a disease earlier and * lengthens time of dx till deathlead-time bias
If you want to know if race affects mortality rate but most of the variation in mortality is predicted by socioeconomic status, * socioeconomic status isconfounding variable
Role of sensitive testslow false negative * good at ruling out disease
Most ppl with TB will be PPD + meaningit is highly sensitive for TB
Cross sectional surveryprevalence
Cohort studyprevalence and incidence
Test with consistent results, but results are wronghigh reliability, low validity
Cohort vs case controlcohort cal RR and Odds ratio, case control calcs Odds ratio
Odds ratiolikelyhood of disease among indiviuals exposed to a risk factor compared to those who have not been exposed
Attributable risk incidence rate of a dz in exposed - IR of dz in unexposed (how much can we attribute the riskfactor to the incidence rate)
Relative riskthe incidence rate of a dz in a population exposed to a factor divided by the IR of those not exposed
