Raised ICP causes headache, vomiting, papilloedema, drowsiness, bradycardia & hypertension.
Neurogenic pulmonary edema may occur.

a)hypotension : Due to Cushing’s reflex, there is hypertension;wrong choice!
b)bradycardia : due to compression of the vasomotor center in medulla,we get bradycardia in raised ICT;correct option.
c)tachycardia : not seen; wrong option.

correct choice: (b) bradycardia

Blood transfusion reaction in a patient under general anesthesia is charcterised by all except:

a)severe hypotension
c)increased oozing from the wound

reference:Lee’s 12th edition pg 30

signs of incompatible transfusion in a patient under anesthesia are :

3)oozing from wound
4)urticarial rash
5)bronchospasm,raising airway pressures on IPPV.
6)later,jaundice & oliguria in 5-10% of these patients.

This strongly resembles anaphylactic reactions.

correct choice: (d) increased cyanosis

The local anesthetic associated with vasoconstriction & mydriasis :


reference:Lee’s synopsis 12th edition pg :592

cardiovascular effects of cocaine:
· small doses increase pulse rate,raises blood pressure
· potentiate the effects of adrenaline on capillaries.
· cutaneous vasoconstriction prevents heat loss.
· hypertension & vasospasm may lead to vascular accidents.

effects on eye:
· mydriasis due to sympathetic stimulation.
· blanching of conjunctiva from vasocnstriction
· clouding of corneal epithelium.
· ulceration of cornea,together with excellent analgesia

correct choice: (c) cocaine

Pes anserinus(feet of a goose) is referred to the terminal branching pattern of the facial nerve in the substance of the parotid gland,forming a surgical plane (FACIO VENOUS PLANE OF PATEY),dividing the parotid into a superficial and a deep lobe.
1) cervical sympathetic trunk : is known as ansa cervicalis.

4) chorda tympani : it’s a branch of facial nerve,which is secretomotor to the submandibular and sublingual glands;and also carries taste sensation from anterior 2/3rd of the tongue.not related to pes anserinus.
