Ok. A break from pharmacodynamics today.
The single column of rock in this picture is the Totem Pole, a popular rock climbing destination off the Tasman Peninsula ( captured here from the Three Capes Track ).
It was the site of a terrible accident in 1998, but an even more amazing story last year.
If you read the article, you’ll find the link to today’s LO….
BT_PO 1.97 Describe the dynamics and metabolism of cerebrospinal fluid
Refer to the diagram below, which shows CSF formation and absorption to help answer the questions
The blue line represents CSF production, which is independent of intraventricular pressure T/F
CSF reabsorption is zero when CSF pressure is low T/F
At normal CSF presssure, production of CSF is greater than reabsorption T/F
Increased absorption of CSF is a indefinite means of compensating for rising ICP T/F
CSF is a filtrate of plasma T/F (no help from the graph there 😊 )
(You can find the unadulterated version of the graph in Ganong’s Review of Medical Physiology)
