Question Answer
DVTthink Virchows triad (stais, endothelial injury, hypercoag)
Exudative effusionpleural/serum protein gt 0.5, pleural/serum LDH gt 0.6 (exudates have greater LDH and protein than transudates)
Causes exudative effisionthink “leaky capillaries”, cx, TB, infxn, PE w infarct, pancreatitis
Transudative effusionpleural/serum protein lt 0.5, pleural/serum LDG lt 0.6 (transudates have less protein and LDH than exudates)
Causes transudative effusionthink of “intact capillaries”. CHF, liver or kidney disea, protein losing enteropathy (not enough protein in serum to hold liquid)
Asthma exaccerbation and normalizing pCO2impending Resp failure
Resp failure stagesfollow pCO2, it is low at first due to compensating, second everything looks normal, 3 is trend for worse, 4 is worst
Dyspnea, bil hilar LAD on CXR, noncaseating granulomas, up ACE(angiotensin converting enzyme), up Ca (up 1 alpha hydroxlase * up vit D)sarcoid

PE lab findinghypoxia and hypocarbia
Hypoxia vs hypoxemia-emia is blood PaO2 lt 80, hypoxia is reduction of o2 supply at tissue level (hypoxemia is a cause, hypoxia is an effect)
Circulutory hypoxiaPaO2 is OK but hypoperfusion leads to hypoxia
Hypercalcemia PTH-rpsmall cell lung cx (also up SIADH)

Characteristics favoring cx in isolate pulmonary noduleage gt 50, lesions new or larger than previous radiographs, absence of calcifcation or irregular calcification, sive gt 2cm, irregular margins
Hypoxemia and pulm edema with normal pulm cap wedge pressureARDS
Pulm cap wedge pressureindirectly measures Left Atrial pressure , elevated pulm cap wedge suggests cardiogenic pulm 2/2 LV output failure, normal pulm (2-15) wedge cap suggests non cardiogenic like ARDS
Silicosis * up riskMycobacterium TB (places to live and hide and grow) opens walls in physical defense so its like plowing soil to sow a seed
CXR pulm edemaCardiomegaly, promient vessels, Kerly B lines, “bats wing” appearance of hilar shadows, perivascular and peribronchial cuffing
