MRSA, Spider Bite, or Something Else? Bug bites, rashes, and other skin conditions can be confused with MRSA because the symptoms may be similar: red, swollen, warm, or tender. ER doctors routinely ask patients who arrive with a painful spider bite whether they actually saw the spider, because these bites so often turn out to be MRSA instead. When a skin infection spreads or does not improve after 2-3 days on usual antibiotics, it may be MRSA.
Calcium channel blockers (CCBs) decrease cardiac inotropy, may increase vasodilation, and in overdose can block insulin secretion. Cardiogenic shock is worsened by the switch from free-fatty acid metabolism to glucose because the heart is unable to transport glucose into cardiac cells due to the lack of insulin.
