April Coding Edge

  1. Question April Coding Edge
    Exam Training Packages
    I have a question: In your April Coding Edge question number 10 ask:

    The cause or mechanism of clubbing is:

    A: Gout
    B: We Don't KNow
    C: Cardiovascular
    D: Pulmonary

    Can anyone tell me the correct answer. It sounds like it would be I don't know because they talk about it being in many different parts of the body, but then a nurse I talked to said it was Cardiovascular. BUT then again it sounds like it envolves arthitis/gout issues...

    I am so confused....
    Thanks

    Default coding edge April question # 10
    I as well put "I don't know". There was also a coding Edge question in one of the other issues that wasn't even in the magazine. It is all very confusing.

    Wink Question #10 Coding Edge April 2008
    The Article reads on the bottom of page 18. Defining the Cause.
    "The Jury is out" on the uderlying cause or mechanism of clubbing.
    Therories vary widely, pathways differ. (b) We don't know
    would be the correct answer. Hope this helps

    I agree with DBryant based on the article in the Coding Edge.
