Answer 26) d

Mortality is 50% and 90% with sepsis

Steroids have no clear role

Three of the most common manifestations of acute respiratory failure are pulmonary
edema, acute lung injury, and ARDS.

In contrast to pulmonary edema, which is associated with increased pulmonary capillary wedge pressure (PCWP) and right-sided heart pressure, acute lung injury and ARDS are associated with hypo-oxygenation because of a pathophysiologic inflammatory response that leads to the accumulation of fluid in the alveoli as well as thickening in the space between the capillaries and the alveoli.

Acute lung injury is associated with a PaO2/fraction of inspired oxygen (FIO2) ratio of less than 300, bilateral infiltrates on chest radiograph, and PCWP less than 18 mm Hg. 

ARDS has PaO2/FIO2 ratio of less than 200 and has bilateral infiltrates
and PCWP less than 18 mm Hg.

34. Habr gamma approach is
a) Neoadjuvant chemoradiation followed by surgery
b) Neoadjuvant followed by wait and watch
c) Surgery followed by adjuvant chemoRT

Ans b 

At present, no predictive factors exist to determine which patients will respond to CRT based on preoperative data.

However, pCR is not an appropriate primary endpoint to guide clinical decision-making because it depends on the pathological results after radical surgery. Habr-Gama et al

developed the “watch and wait” protocol by creating a new endpoint: cCR.

Based on a strict surveillance protocol, patients are determined to be responders once they have no evidence of tumor on: (1) DRE; (2) endoscopic assessment; and (3) imaging
