5 Matching questions

  1. Preload
  2. B type Natriuretic peptide
  3. Nitroglycerin
  4. Afterload
  5. Class II drugs
  1. a venous vasodilator, increases coronary perfusion, decreases preload, comes in a glass bottle, 5 mcg/min and titrate/// WATCH blood pressure
  2. b Beta adrenergic blockers /// Blocks stimulation of sympathetic nervous system /// slows AV conduction /// Treatment for SVT's, A fib, A flutter /// Esmolol, Metoprolol, Propranolol
  3. c amount of pressure that the left ventricle has to pump against to get blood out of left ventricle
  4. d amount of blood left in the right ventricle at the end of diastole
  5. e treatment of acute heart failure // decreases filling pressures, decreased vascular resistance, preload, afterload, workload/// IV bolus 2 mcg/kg // Continous infusion 0.01 mcg/kg/min /// Natricore

5 Multiple choice questions

  1. vasodilation and vasoconstriction
  2. Propofol (Diprivan) hypnotic used for induction and maintaince of anesthesia or sedation short half life typical dose is 5-50 mg/kg/min// the longer they are on it the longer it takes to wake them up// wean off of diprivan first before weaning off of the vent // doing sedation vacations 1 q shift helps decrease tolerance and nurse can perform neuro checks during this time
  3. amount of blood pumped out of the left ventricle per beat
  4. myocardium oxygen consumption
  5. Quinidine, Procainamide, Disopyramide /// Widens the QRS/QT interval /// depresses contractility

5 True/False questions

  1. Direct smooth muscle relaxersperipheral vasodilators, decrease PVR, Nipride, Nitroglycerin, and Hydralazine


  2. Class IV drugsCalcium channel blockers /// primarily in sinus, AV nodes and atrial tissue /// treatment for SVT /// Verapamil, and Cardizem /// they slow the heart rate and decrease irritability


  3. Phosphodiesterase inhibitorsvasodilators, decreases blood pressure, Inhibits conversion of angiotensin 1 to II // may cause hypotension esp in hypovolemic patients // Coptopril and Enalapril


  4. Moderate dose dopamine3-10 mcg/kg/min has a beta 1 effect (increases contractility and stroke volume) if CO is increased then that's just a bonus


  5. Extremely high dose dopamine11-20 mcg/kg/min has an alpha effect and vasoconstricts /// high doses increase SVR, increase BP, increase the workload of the heart
