    C. Biseptol
    Explanation
    Biseptol should be prescribed to the patient with pneumonia who has intolerance to antibiotics. Biseptol is a combined sulfanilamide medicine that contains sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim. It is commonly used to treat bacterial infections, including pneumonia. The combination of sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim works by inhibiting the growth of bacteria, thereby helping to eliminate the infection. This medication is often well-tolerated and effective in treating pneumonia, especially in cases where the patient may have a sensitivity or intolerance to other antibiotics.

      Reserpine

    Correct Answer
    B. Prednisolone
    Explanation
    Prednisolone is the correct answer because it is a corticosteroid drug that can cause osteoporosis, erosion of the stomach mucous membrane, hypokalemia, retention of sodium and water, and reduced content of corticotropin in the blood. These side effects are commonly associated with long-term use of prednisolone. Hydrochlorothiazide, Digoxin, Indometacin, and Reserpine do not typically cause these specific side effects.

      A 4 year old child was admitted to the orthopaedic department with shin fracture together with displacement. Bone fragments reposition requires preliminary analgesia. What preparation should be chosen?       

    • A.

      Naloxone

    • B.

      Panadol

    • C.

      Morphine hydrochloride

    • D.

      Analgin

    • E.

      Promedol

    Correct Answer
    E. Promedol
    Explanation
    Promedol should be chosen as the preparation for repositioning the bone fragments in the 4-year-old child with a shin fracture and displacement. Promedol is a strong analgesic and is commonly used for pain relief during orthopaedic procedures. Naloxone is an opioid receptor antagonist used to reverse the effects of opioid overdose, so it would not be appropriate in this situation. Panadol is a mild analgesic and may not provide sufficient pain relief for this procedure. Morphine hydrochloride is a strong opioid analgesic, but Promedol is a better choice due to its shorter duration of action and fewer side effects. Analgin is a non-opioid analgesic and may not provide adequate pain relief.

      Examination of a patient revealed extremely myotic pupils, sleepiness, infrequent Chain-Stoke's respiration, urinary retention, slowing-down of heart rate, enhancement of spinal reflexes. What substance caused the poisoning?   

    • A.

      Atropine

    • B.

      Morphine

    • C.

      Phosphacole

    • D.

      Caffeine

    • E.

      Barbital

    Correct Answer
    B. Morphine
    Explanation
    The symptoms described in the question, such as myotic pupils, sleepiness, urinary retention, and slowing-down of heart rate, are consistent with the effects of morphine poisoning. Atropine, on the other hand, would cause the opposite effects, such as dilated pupils and increased heart rate. Phosphacole, caffeine, and barbital do not typically cause these specific symptoms. Therefore, the substance that caused the poisoning in this case is most likely morphine.
