Into page 32 (out of over 1000) so far and already found a few errors:
Page "Which clinical manifestation would support the diagnosis of NEUROGENIC SHOCK:
a. No reflex activity below waist
b. Inability to move upper extremities
3. complaints of pounding headache
4. Hypotension and bradycardia
In my LEWIS MED SURG book and in lectures, they clearly state that BRADYCARDIA AND HYPOTENSION are the trademarks of NEUROGENIC SHOCK. Yet Davis states "A." NO REFLEX TO MOVE UPPER EXTREMITIES" is the right asnwer.
The rationale they had for option 4 was: Hypotension and TACHYCARDIA are signs of hypovolemic shock or septic shock, but these do not occur in SPINAL SHOCK.
First: the question included BRADYCARDIA NOT TACHYCARDIA. Second, it was talking about NEUROGENIC , NOT SPINAL SHOCK!
