Internal Laryngeal N. = cough reflex = piriform recess

Gag Reflex = CN 9 and CN 10
S4 = left ventricular hypertrophy
PPARalpha increased LPL activity AND decreases VLDL production
Fibrates and Niacin both decrease VLDL production
If all else fails, person from underdeveloped country with murmur = think RF which is associated with MR
If you have a normal A-a gradient, then low arterial O2 is directly due to low alveolar O2 and not due to
V/Q mismatch or diffusion disorders.
Mycobacterium Avium vs TB: Avium grows at higher temps, goes to reticuloendothelial organs so it will be
seen with anemia, elevated LDH and ALP.
Kussmall sign (paradoxal increase in JVP on inspiration) = CHRONIC not acute pericarditis
Pulsus Paradoxus (>10 mmHg drop during inspiration) = CHRONIC not acute pericarditis, cardiac
tamponade, cor pulmonale
Pericardial Knock = sound heard in early diastole, before S2 = seen in CHRONIC, not acute pericarditis
5 days after MI = LV free wall rupture = hypotension, PEA and death
True ventricular aneurysm = >1month
L sided HF = Pulmonary Hypertension (PH) = pulmonary venous congestion, increased endothelin,
increased vascular tone, remodeling of pulmonary vasculature, SM proliferation (medial hypertrophy) and
intimal thickening and fibrosis (collagen and elastase deposition)
PH due to hypoxia induced constriction = COPD and emphysema obliteration of pulmonary vasculature

Hemosiderin laden macrophages in lung = CHRONIC LV failure

Lowest osmolarity in high ADH or dehydration = DCT
If Lactate is not being generated, then NAD+ is not being produced, so NAD+ cant be used for glycolysis
NADH formed from HMP shunt necessary for FA synthesis
Review ethanol effects, alcohol stops gluconeogenesis, not glycogenolysis
Ketone formation + Glucose formation is due to hormone sensitive lipase which breaks down TGs into
Glycerol and FAs. FAs turn into ketones. Glycerol into glucose. HSL is activated during starvation.
rT3 formed from T4, not T3
Insulin resistance decreases effects of insulin, so you get increased lipolysis = increased FFAs
Primary Aldosteronism = NORMAL Sodium due to aldosterone escape; bicarb is also increased due to
increased H+ excretion
SIADH = euvolemic hyponatremia = NORMAL Extracellular volumes

T3/4 and Cortisol increases gluconeogenesis, lipolysis, proteolysis

Glucagon increases lipolysis, ketogenesis (opposite of insulin)

Articularotry techniques = LVLA = good for post-op pts. examples include Rib
Raising and Spencer technique

IT band syndrome tx = pt lateral recumbent and physician apply pressure

downward on the band

paraspinal inhibition = decrease sympathetics

iliacus tenderpoint = 7 cm medial to ASIS

Posterior tibia on talus (or anterior talus) = diagnosed by decreased dorsiflexion and
tenderness or anterior ankle

Myofascial release or capal tunnel = extend wrist and transverse traction to flexor

AC1 tender point = posterior aspect of ascending ramus of mandible. Tx: rotate
head AWAy
Treatment for radial head tenderpoint = E SUP Val; for medial epicondyle = F PRO
Nursemaids eblow = Flexed, Adducted, Pronated
Bilateral sacral FLEXION = common in post-partum pt

SEX LAP = tendons of De Quervains tenosynovitis = Short Extensor pollicis

(extensor pollicis brevis), Long Abductor Pollicis (abductor pollicis longus)
PC1 = Flexion
PC3 = F Sa Ra
All other post cervical = E Sa Ra
Posterior Rib tenderpts = rotate torso toward and S away
