  5. What happened if pulse  j>10 on standing?
    Hypovolernic shock
  6. What happened if pulse l <5 on standing?
    Au tonomic dvsfunction
  7. What are the symptoms of a low energy state?
    • CNS: n1ental retardation, dementia
    • CV: heart failure, pericardial effusion
    • Muscle: weakness, SOB, vasodilation, impotence, urinary retention, constipation

    Rapidly Dividing Cells:

    • •       
    • Skin: dry
    • •Cuticles: brittle
    • •Hair: alopecia
    • •Bone n1arrow: suppressed
    • •Vascular endothelium: breaks down
    • •Lungs: infection, SOB
    • •Kidney: PCT will feel the effect first
    • •G I: N /V/D
    • •Bladder: oliguria
    • •Sperm: decreased
    • •Germ cells: predisposed to cancer
    • •Breasts: atrophic
    • •Endo1netrium: amenorrhea
  8. What are the most common signs of the low energy state?
    Tachypnea and dyspnea
  9. What are the most common symptoms
    of the low energy state?
    Weakness and SOB
  10. What are the most common infections of the low energy state?
    UTIand respiratory infections
  11. What is the most common cause of death in the low energy state?
    Heart failure
  12. Explain all restrictive  lung diseases:
    Restrictive: interstitial problem (non-bacterial)

    • •Small stiff lungs (l VC)
    • •Trouble breathing in ::::> f EV 1/ FVC: > 0.8
    • •ABG: J.p02 ::::> f RR, J. pCO:i, ipH
    • •CXR: reticulo-nodular  pattern, ground-glass appearance
    • •Die of cor pulmonale
    • •Ex: NM <liseascs O)teathing out is passive), drugs, autoin1111w1c dz
    • •Tx: Pressure support on ventilator, to, t U.,
    • iinspiratory tin1e
  13. Explain all obstructive lung
    • Obstructive: airway problem Q)acterial)
    • •Big mucus-filled lungs (iRV, jReid index =
    • iairwar thicknessI airway lumen)
    • •Trouble breathing out =>FEV J FVC:< 0.8
    • •rBG:ipC02 => iRR, .J...pH
    • •Die of bronchiectasis
    • •Ex: COPD
    • •Tx: Manipulate rate on ventila
    • tor, tRR, texpira tory time, to2  only if needed
  14. What symptoms does a "more likely to depolarize" state have?
    • Brain: psychosis, seizures, jitteri.ness Skeletal muscle: muscle spasms, tetany SM:
    • diarrhea, then constipation Cardiac: tachycardia, arrhytluTiias
  15. What
    symptoms does a "less likely to depolarize" state have?
    • Brain: lethargy, mental status changes, depression Skeletal muscle: weakness,
    • SOB

    • SM: constipa tion, tl1en diarrhea Cardiac: hn)otension,
    • brad ycardia
  16. What is the humoral
    immune response?
    B cells and PMNs patrol the blood looking for bacteria
  17. What
    is the cell-mediated immune response?
    • T cells and
    • Macrophages patrol the
    • tissues looking for non-bacteria
  18. What are macrophages called in each area of the body?
    • Blood=Monocytes

    • l hr: Swelling
    • Day I : PMNs show up Day 3: PMNs peak
    • Day -k MP/T cells show up
    • Day 7: MP/T cells peak, Fibroblasts arrive Day 30: l'ibroblasts peak
