temporal retina

8

pituitary adenoma/ enlargement pressess on

optic chiasm--bitemporal hemianopia--know first 3 on slide 11

9

imp for visual field loss--due to lesion

questions are concerning VISUAL FIELD loss--not retinal region loss

10

conductive vs

sensoryneural hearing loss

11

arthritis of ausicles, cerumen impaction, hard/ perforated TM, fluid buildup (otitis media if infected--serus otitis if fluid but no infection

conductive hearing loss

12

if bone conduction is better than air conduction (w/ tuning fork)

conductive hearing loss because hair cells intact
