Presentation Transcript


  • Be able to describe the anatomy of the liver from gross to internal and the lobule.

  • important physiologic function the liver performs

  • what join together to form the common bile duct?

  • what two major sources deliver blood to the liver?

  • what is a sinusoid? Why does cancer metastasize to the liver frequently?

  • what vitamins are formed and stored in the liver? Why does administration of these vitamins and medications need to be carefully followed in people with hepatic disease?

Midterm study

  • describe storage and breakdown of glucose by the liver

  • describe the liver function in formation of phospholipids

  • what happens to osmotic pressure in the plasma in liver disease?

  • why do people with liver disease bruise easily?

  • where do plasma proteins enter the blood stream?

  • a thorough history will reveal what signs and symptoms, in general, in liver disease?

  • when are venous hums ascultated?

  • what causes steatorrhea?

  • when are AST and ALT elevated? elevated serum ammonia? decreased serum cholesterol? hypoalbuminemia?

Midterm study

  • what is the role of a normally functioning gallbladder?

  • what happens within the bile in gallbladder disease that increases likelihood of stone formation?

  • signs and symptoms - systemically of cirrhosis.

Liver abscess
liver abscess

  • causes of pyogenic abscess

Fatty liver
Fatty Liver

  • causes of fatty liver.

  • diagnosis of fatty liver.

  • treatments

  • what is the role of patient education

Hepatic encephalopathy
Hepatic Encephalopathy

  • what is it? why does it happen? what are the four stages of hepatic encephalopathy?

  • treatment

Gallbladder know symptoms causes possible treatments and worst case outcomes

Wow that was a lot of information
WOW! THAT WAS A LOT OF INFORMATION worst case outcomes

  • Now that we have heard this how do we study?

    • Important things to know: general ear anatomy - location of external ear canal, middle ear, inner ear and what each is composed of anatomically

    • What are the common causes of otitis externa?

    • What’s the difference between acute otitis externa and chronic otitis externa?

More study
More Study: worst case outcomes

  • Where is otitis media located?

  • What are some risk factors in otitis media: TM perforation, mastoiditis..

  • What are predisposing factors to OM? eg. exposure to smoking

Study continued
Study continued... worst case outcomes

  • Mastoiditis is a RED FLAG - how would you recognize it, what are signs and symptoms, when would you refer?

  • What happens in the disease progression of otosclerosis? Describe the Rinne/Weber test

  • What’s happens in Meniere’s Disease? Who is most commonly diagnosed with it and what are their signs and symptoms? List non-surgical treatments eg. Diuretics, dietary changes...

  • What is the difference between Acute Vestibular Labyrinthitis and bacterial labyrinthis?

Study more
Study MORE! worst case outcomes

  • What are the two types of hearing loss? What are some common causes for hearing loss? Name some ototoxic drugs, the dB levels for prolonged noise exposure hearing loss, maternal exposures and neonatal exposures that can lead to hearing loss?

  • What are some causes of sudden hearing loss and why is it a medical emergency?

  • Motion sickness: what is the cause?

Study... worst case outcomes

  • General anatomy of the sinuses and throat: where are sinuses? Which are which? Nasopharynx? Oropharynx? “Throat”?

  • Why are infections in this area (EARS, NOSE, THROAT and eventually - EYES) something to watch/be concerned about?

  • What is the time frame to be aware of when treating epistaxis? What are some conditions or exogenous substances that might cause an increase in bleeding time?

  • What are the more common causes of nasal septum perforation?

  • Differences between acute, chronic, allergic and hyperplastic sinusitis.

  • Complications that can arise from untreated sinusitis.

  • Physical exam findings (what is transillumination? Where might you find tenderness to palpation - TTP?)

And more
and more... worst case outcomes

  • Where are adenoids located? What are some complications of adenoid hyperplasia?

  • Causes of acute vs. viral pharyngitis. Signs and symptoms of pharyngitis.

  • What bacteria is most dangerous in tonsillitis? What are possible complications from untreated tonsillitis?

  • Location of peritonsillar vs. retropharyngeal abscess
