    • fatigue
    • HA
    • bradycardia
    • arrhytmias

    • irregular edges, not dark ulcer
    • surrounding skin is pale
    • absent pulses
  14. cellulitis vs dermatitis vs scleroderma presentations
    • cellulitis: hot, red, edematous, fever
    • dermatitis: red, weeping, crusted skin lesions, no fever

    • Sooo, for a 3 step entry you want 21 feet of ramp
    • This gives you an 8% grade

  20. breathing in metabolic acidosis
    initially rapid and shallow, but as CO2 accumulates it gets deeper, labored, gasping trying to fight this (Kussmaul's respirations)
