Questions – Week 5 Dec

I am going to try and focus these questions on the weekly topics, but this week there is only intermediate metabolism. So lets start with a few MCQs


The following are examples of active transport:

a) sodium extrusion from cells
b) water reabsorption from the proximal convoluted tubule
c) potassium excretion in the distal convoluted tubule
d) glucose absorption from the gut
c) water reabsorption in the loop of Henle


Hypoglycaemia may result from:

a) excessive insulin secretion
b) alpha-adrenergic stimulation
c) beta-adrenergic stimulation
d) glucagon secretion
e) hypothermia


Quick and easy? Then try these…


1. Discuss how the PaO2 is influenced by PaCO2 (20)

2. Discuss the different types of interactions that exist between drugs. (25)

3.Discuss the ECG with reference to the following

  • basic functioning of the ECG machine
  • amplification and gain
  • Factors determining the quality of the trace recorded
  • the role and minimisation of interference (50)
