  for number 28

this is pretty weak but i remember from our lectures that there are metabolic causes for pericarditis/pericardial effusion. "distant heart sounds" are a buzz-word for pericardial effusion, that's for sure... its just linking the two together.

He was in for surgery (anesthesia or something) reduced renal clearance of uric acid resulting in pericarditis -> decreased CO -> backup of fluid into his lungs.

and a gouty flare up.

honestly if you look through 1st aid or Goljan you're not going to find the metabolic basis for pericarditis, it was something i learned from lecture...i checked uptodate and educus and there's a linkage between uremia and pericarditis but this may be one of those questions that I sacrifice for the greater good =)
