competitive muscarinic antagonist that penetrates the CNS (hallucinations, dizziness, blurred vision)
muscarinic antagonist that treats motion sickness and has significant CNS effects
muscarinic antagonist that is used as an anesthetic to keep up the heart rate during surgical procedures.
muscarinic antagonist that is used to treat asthma (relaxes bronchial smooth muscle to dilate the trachea)
muscarinic antagonist that is used to treat Parkinson's
muscarinic antagonist that is selective for M3 receptors & treats overactive bladder/urinary incontinence
muscarinic antagonist that is really similar to atropine, except is has a shorter half-life. Used by ophthamologists to dilate pupils.
Nicotinic antagonist (nerve type) that blocks both arms of the ANS. Effect of this drug depends on the predominant tone of the tissue.
Nicotinic competitive antagonist that binds the Nm receptor (prevents Ach from binding) to cause flaccid paralysis.
Nicotinic receptor agonist that causes a depolarization block & induces flaccid paralysis.
This drug affects smaller muscles (EOMs) more than larger muscles. This is due to the greater nerve-to-muscle ratio
atracurium, curare, and mivacurium
These three curare-type drugs cause histamine release
This drug is hydrolyzed by plasma esterase; hence, it has a short half-life
This drug spontaneously breaks down and its byproduct, daudanosine, can cause seizures
This drug may produce malignant hyperthermia
Curare-type drugs and succinylcholine have NO EFFECT on the CNS. True or False?
