What are some sx of digitalis toxicity?

Vision: Blurry, color (yellow/green)
GI: N/v, diarrhea, abd pain
Increase in K is correlated to dig level
Tx of digitalis toxicity?
1. Oral activated charcoal
2. Insulin, Kayexalate, hemodialysis to manage hyperK (NOT calcium gluconate)
3. Antibody to dig
How does HIT cause paradoxical thrombosis?
Ab to heparin and Platelet factor IV
What drugs are given for HIT?
Direct thrombin inhibitors (hirudin, lepirudin, argatroban), which do not require antithrombin-III

They are apical lung tumors that cause Horner syndrome in 50% of patients
What is the triad of Horner syndrome?
Ipsilateral miosis, ptosis, anhidrosis
What condition presents with spongiotic dermatitis (with epidermal spongiosis)?
Acanthosis is associated with what condition?
What is acantholysis?
Loss of cohesion between keratinocytes in the epidermis or adnexal structures. Associated with spongiotic dermatitis, as in eczematous dermatitis

Reduced serum albumin levels indicate what time course of liver disease?
Chronic, NOT in acute liver injury, because albumin has half life of 20 days
What is the half life of albumin?
What lab findings will be seen in patients with inhaled-anesthetic induced hepatotoxicity?
Prolonged PT (deficiency of factor VII, which has the shortest half life)
