a kaplan q;
a woman 32 years old,with overall good health just moderately elevated BP,,,if she were to die at some point in next 10 years,the most likely casue of death would be;
and HOW ABOUT SAME SENARIO BUT PATIENT bing MALE.
kaplan doesn't say anything about leading cause in males or females, so i am assuming and i will assume this for the exam.
so if it were a male the same would apply i think.
if you find out something else please post
WHAT ABOUT 3
SHE ALREADY HAVE HBP
because in the next 10 years the will be int he category of 34 - 45 years & int his age group the neoplasm is the most common cause of death
it is an epidemiological fact not related to any thing else
this question requires u to know just the fact that int his age group it is neoplasm that causes most deaths
& about the blood pressure
ti would be significant if he said it is complicated by any thing else but here it is moderate with no complications mentioned
so i suppose it is neoplasm
hey guys,it is mentioned in last chapter in kaplan psychiatry book ,chapter public health.
blood pressure is just a trick,so we just check gender,race,age group.
for this age and being female ,the answer is : neoplasm.
if it was a male scenario ,answer : unintended injury.
females are more careful that males : )
