3-Assess motility with nuclear gastric-emptying study
9-Gastroparesis treatment1-Diet: Frequent small meals with low fat & only soluble fiber
2-Promotility drugs: metoclopramide(1st),Erythromycin
3-Gastric electrical stimulation &/or jejunal feeding tubes for refractory symptoms
10-when to screen for endometrial hyperplasia/ cancer in old lady who is taking Tamoxifen post breast cancerevaluation only if symptoms develop (eg, abnormal uterine bleeding, postmenopausal bleeding).
11-wt is the indications of selective estrogen receptor modulators1-Prevention of breast cancer in high-risk patients
2-Tamoxifen: Adjuvant treatment of breast cancer
3-Raloxifene: Postmenopausal osteoporosis
12-wt is side effects of Selective estrogen receptor modulators1-Hot flashes

8-Abdominal trauma 2nd- & 3rd-trimester bleeding
9-External cephalic version
15-what is the effect of Rh(D) alloimmunization on the neonateCan lead to hemolytic disease. When severe anemia develops in the fetus, it can lead to heart failure and subsequent hydrops fetalis (eg, pleural or pericardial effusion, ascites)
16-when to screen for anti D abx and how to manage if positive and if negativeAt the first prenatal visit and at 28 weeks.

-Positive antibody screening indicates that alloimmunization has already occurred, and anti-D immune globulin is not administered.

-Negative anti-D antibody screening confirms a lack of antigen exposure and is an indication to anti-D prophylaxis at 28 weeks and at postpartum <72 hours after delivery
17-how to screen for multiple myeloma serum and urine protein electrophoresis
