Abstract: 

The Step1 Test Prep Series was created by second-year students at the Texas Tech School of Medicine in Lubbock as a project of the MS2 Aging Block of Systems Disorders II. It was developed as part of the Reynolds Geriatrics Podcast series, which is supported in part by an Aging and Quality of Life grant from the D.W. Reynolds Foundation. The episodes in this series are based on questions that have geriatrics content and patient vignettes from the 2011 Step1 Sample Exam, available from http://www.ttuhsc.edu/som/fammed/ttmedcast/gerseries/gerstep1prep.aspx.

Educational objectives: 

The second-year medical student studying for the Step 1 exam should be able to:

  • Identify a major risk factor of aspiration of gastric contents
  • Describe the clinical manifestations of aspiration of gastric contents
  • Differentiate between clinical manifestations seen with aspiration of gastric contents and those caused by other conditions such as viral pneumonia, metastatic cancer, lung infarction secondary to arterial thrombosis primary cancer, secondary infection of congenital lung cyst, and septic embolism
