Flashcards in Random Factoids#2 Deck (17):
Stroke like symptoms & seizure suggest:
Hemorrhagic stroke - no fibrinolytics
Normal CPP minimum to perfuse brain? What % CO goes to brain?
CPP 70, CO 25%
Basilar skull fracture: facial symptoms & cranial nerve involvement
Facial palsy, nystagmus, facial numbness
Cranial nerves: V, VI, VII
When calculating the CPP, you don't know the ICP... What should you use?
Upper range of ICP normal, 0-15
DAI Simple definition & radiological Results
Injury that causes severe shearing of the axons of nerve cells
-CT & MRI = unidentifiable damage
Harsh systolic murmur
Traumatic Aortic a Rupture
-caused by pericardiac tamponade of effusion
-due to fluids in sac
-alteration of QRS amplitude, or axis between beats, possible wandering baseline.
Normal split S2
Split on inspiration but not expiration.
DTRs & DKA
Drop in DTR suggest worse acidosis. Deterioration.
Sepsis initial fluid resus. Rate
SIRS leads to MODS, which organs are hit first
Respiratory failure followed by hepatic then renal.
CVP target for long lasting HTN or LV Hypertrophy
Goal SVO2 for severe sepsis pts
Progressive insufficiency of 2 or more organ systems
Hyperdynamic sepsis cardiac response
Compensation: increased CO, CI, contractility
