    00:01 Alright, we've come to the end.

    00:02 A few quick review questions.

    00:04 Again, I'll ask a question, feel free to pause the screen and unpause it when you're ready to hear the answer.

    00:10 Features that suggest osteoarthritis as the cause of joint pain include all of the following except: Alright, so an arthrocentesis yielding 12,300 white blood cells? That should absolutely be a red flag that this is not osteoarthritis but let's just look at the other ones just to be sure Morning stiffness for less than 30 minutes, that's a very good example of an osteoarthritic joint, pain that worsens with activity, that's a classic feature and inflammatory joint by the way tends to get better with activity.

    00:45 Involvelment of the PIP and DIP joints, also a feature of osteoarthritis and the absence of systemic symptoms should steer you away from autoimmune or rheumatologic diseases to thinking about osteoartritis.

    00:58 So for sure, number one, is the answer to this question.

    01:03 And I think that's it for osteoarthritis.
