    • methemoglobinemia
    • nephrotic syndrome
    • peripheral neuropathy
  19. prolong QRS
  20. anticonvulsant /antiepileptic wiht effect on epiphyseal plate
    phenytoin via revving up cytochrome system in liver and causing vit D deficiency - increased metabolism of 25 hydroxy vit D
  21. ondansetron
    • selective serotonin 5ht3 receptor antagonist
    • useful in bocking chemoreceptor trigger zone nausea in the area postrema
  22. opioid overdose

  23. alcoholic in ER
    IV thiamine to prevent acute wernickes encephalopathy
  24. heparin
    • mcc of thombocytopenia in hospital

  25. coumadin overdose
    • fresh frozen plasma if serious
    • IM vitamin K for less serious bleeds
  26. nitrofurantoin
    • concentrated in urine
    • urinary tract antiseptic

    • transitional cell carcinoma
  28. doxorubicin and prednisone
    metabolized in the liver
  29. gout after cancer therapy
    • prevent by giving allopurinol - xanthine oxidase inhibitor

  30. muscle fasciculations after neuromuscular block
    initial effect of succinylcholine
  31. levodopa
