Ogilvie's Syndrome
• Ogilvie's Syndrome: acute pseudo-obstruction of the colon without any real mechanical obstruction, seen in men over 60 with associated underlying condition. Likely autonomic impairment.
○ May occur after surgery, especially following coronary artery bypass surgery and total joint replacement.
○ Also seen with neurologic disorders, serious infections, cardiorespiratory insufficiency, and metabolic disturbances.
○ Drugs that disturb colonic motility (e.g., anticholinergics or opioid analgesics) contribute to the development.

Reassortment- Segmented Viruses (exchange Homologous Segments); Stable Genetic Change (do 1-for-1 swap that lasts many generations)
-When Segmented Genome Viruses (ex. Influenza Virus) exchange segments - resulting in high frequency Recombination
Reason for world-wide influenza pandemics.

Recombination- Exchange of genes between 2 chromosomes by Crossing Over within regions of significant base sequence homology

Types: Homologous Crossing Over - one-to-one exchange of linear extrachromosomal DNA for Homologous Alleles within the chromosome - uses Recombinase A.
Site-Specific Crossing Over - incorporation of extrachromosomal circles of DNA into another molecule of DNA using restriction Endonucleases.

Inversion - Take part broken off to cross over and flip its direction
a. Paracentric Inversion - does NOT involve Centromere (Centromere will not be moved in final created chromosome) - forms acentric fragment and dicentric bridge, cell WON'T complete meiosis
b. Pericentric Inversion - involves Centromere (Chromosome will have centromere moved so that SISTER chromosomes don't match up) - needs to do recombination loop to pair up (only uses 1 arm to duplicate stuff)
Anesthetic Principles

Inc blood solubility-

Inc AV Concentration Gradient-
Lung - Inc rate and depth of Ventilation resulting in Inc Gas Tension.
Blood - INC blood solubility means INC Blood/Gas Partition Coefficient, so Inc solubility and INC gas required to saturate blood that results in SLOWER onset of action!
----Anesthetics with LOW blood:gas partition coefficients are advantageous, because they act rapidly and the time to recover from their effects is short!
Tissue (ex. Brain)- INC AV Concentration Gradient = results in INC solubility and INC gas required to saturate tissue and SLOWER onset of action. (think- >in arteries and low in veins, bc gas is getting lost in tissues, not getting to brain!)

Drugs with DEC solubility in the blood = RAPID induction and recovery times.
Drugs with Inc solubility in lipids have Inc Potency = 1/MAC (where MAC is Minimal Alveolar Concentration at which 50% of the population is anesthetized - and can vary with age)

-Inhaled type will INC Cerebral Blood Flow

Elastin differs from Collagen via:
-aa's: PG (rich in Proline, Glycine; vs in Collagen: Proline, Lysine, and esp Glycine (every 3rd aa); PL, collagen is a G PLaya; Elastin is more PG, less L).
-Fewer hydroxy groups in Elastin, and not glycosylated (in collagen, add OH to Proline and Lysine, add SUGAR to Lysine-OH)
-No triple helix due to the lack of Glycosylation (and so no Disulfide Bridge, bc Elastin is PG, not PL and its the L, LYSINE, that does triple helix and bridge)!
-Elastin, Instead of Triple Helix, uses a fibrillin scaffolding (marfan's).
-Cross-links: (in collagen due to *Lysine-OH* and copper); Relies on DESMOSINE Cross-links for elasticity between the limited Lysine that is in Elastin.
-Dec via enzyme: Elastase of Neutrophiles, n'lly we have alpha-1-anti-tripsin to turn this off (panacinar emphysema, cirrhosis).
