abdominal flat plate
Abscess would be constant

Salter Harris Type I
Salter I = slight increase in Space between epiphyseal plate and metaphysis
Salter Harris Type II
Salter Harris Type III
Salter III = fx Lower (in the epiphyseal plate)
Salter Harris Type IV
Salter IV = fit Through (both the metaphysis and epiphysis)
Salter Harris Type V
Salter V = Really bad (comminuted fx compressing the epiphysis) This spells SALTR and may help you remember.
- Salter I = slight increase in Space between epiphyseal plate and metaphysis
- Salter II = fx Above the plate (in the metaphysis)
- Salter III = fx Lower (in the epiphyseal plate)
- Salter IV = fit Through (both the metaphysis and epiphysis)
- Salter V = Really bad (comminuted fx compressing the epiphysis) This spells SALTR and may help you remember.

In pre-renal ARF, the sodium content of the urine would be decreased (because the patient is volume depleted, so the kidneys try to retain Na - less is in the urine)
intrarenal — glomerulonephritis
intrarenal — acute tubular necrosis
In intrarenal disease, the urine would contain casts.
intrarenal — interstitial nephritis
the intensity of the murmur increases during a valsalva maneuver
the intensity of the murmur decreases during standing
the murmur does not change while the patient squat
the intensity of the murmur decreases during exercise
elevation of the legs while the patient is supine increases the intensity of the murmur
