Step 1 Challenge: 11/27/18

Today’s Step 1 challenge comes from the respiratory section of Qmax and First Aid. Tell us what you’d find under the microscope as well as what led you to that conclusion. Bonus hearts ❤️ are given to those who can accurately dissect the question.

We also wanted to let you know that the current round of the Rx Challenge is coming to a close, which means that we’ll soon be picking the winner of a $500 gift card and a personal counseling session with First Aid senior editor, Dr. Tao Le. But you can’t win if you don’t enter!
