  1. End tidal CO2 to monitor quality. yours right too. I am just giving extra.
2. Whole body irrigation ( which is similar to colonoscopy prep) is indicated for "body packers" )professional drug smugglers) and also can also be used for children with visible lead paint chips on x rays as well.
3. (a) Monkey Bite: Prophylactic Valavyclovir or Acyclovir X 14 days.
(b) Scorpion stings are treated with Antivenom and BZDs. We have to monitor for HTN, Arrythmias and Pancreatitis.
4. Metronidazole
5. Strychine Poisoning which looks just like Tetanus. They say that when heroin is cut, drug dealers often use white, bitter chemicals so that the drug still tastes pure. Strychine antagonizes glycine (we all know its a n inhibitory neurotransmitter) in the spinal cord. So, give BZDs.
6. LOL. Both can be used. We need ISOTONIC SOLUTION

7. a)true b) FALSE c) FALSE d) True

8. Diagnosis is true. Tx??
9. Yeah. Crohns. Tx- Acute start with steroids then ASA (sulfasalazine). After that, well you know it
10. YEAH lol
