Abstract: 

The Step1Test 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 USMLE Step1-Style questions that have geriatrics content and patient vignettes from the Step1 Sample Exams.

Educational objectives: 

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

  • Describe the signs and symptoms of congestive heart failure.
  • Explain the mechanism of action and physiologic response to cardio-selective β blockers.
  • Explain the rationale for using a cardioselective versus a nonselective β blocker.
  • Explain the role of carotid baroreceptors in the regulation of blood pressure.
