What is the clue that this is not pulmonary fibrosis? How do I decide between Doxorubicin and Bleomycin?
Also both bleomycin and methotrexate cause pulmonary fibrosis, so that helped me rule both those out and focus on the HF instead of the pulmonary symptoms
The S3 gallop and enlarged heart together are very strong evidence for heart failure. It's much more likely for heart failure to cause interstitial edema than for pulmonary fibrosis to directly cause heart failure.
Great explanation - I think you have a minor typo, LVEDV will be increased* bc SV is decreased
More blood left in the ventricle after systole is LVESV. I thought LVEDV increases because more blood remains after systole and on top of that blood from left atria from diastole is now also added.
she is also volume overloaded. more fluid leads to a decrease in Hematocrit.
I thought PTH increases 1-alpha-hydroxylase which increases levels of 1 ,25?
it's supposed to in the setting of proper kidney fxn
