| Drug Effects/Interactions
| Adverse Rxns
| Beta1 Adrenergic Sympathomimetics
| Dopamine/Intropin (neurotransmitter/catecholemine)
| * Dopamin is the only receptor to stimulate these site * A precursor in synthesis of NE * Action: Beta agonist/alpha agonist- dose dependentDopaminergic
| * Dilate renal blood vessels, brain, mesentery and heart vessels increased blood flow * Stimulate alpha/beta receptors/vasoconstrictor, increase CO2 improves contractility of the heart also can cause renal dilation. Drug of choice for shock
Tx circulatory shock, heart failure and ↓ BP *
Monitor for: Dysrhythmias *
↑ HR *
Chest pain *
Immediate onset *
Duration of action < 10 minutes *
Cardiac monitoring required!
| Extravasation may cause necrosis.
| Should be infused into a large vein Prevent possibility of extravasation into tissue adjacent. Infusion site should be continuously monitored for free flow.
| Vasoactive adrenergicPrimarily cardioselective effects/beta 1 selective vasoactive adrenergic drug, direct stimulation of B1 receptors
| * Increase cardiac output by increasing contractility and increase stroke volume, IV only * Tx for HF and cariogenic shock * Hypotension * Critical care observation
| * Upset stomach * Vomiting * Tingling sensations * Fever * Leg cramps * Headaches * Irregular heartbeat * ↑ in blood pressure and heart rate * Chest pain * Shortness of breath * Swelling (lower legs and ankles) * ↑ Fatigue * Lightheadedness, dizziness, or faintness * Skin rash * Dysrhythmias
| Albuterol Sulfate
Short-acting, selective, β2-adrenergic receptor agonist (bronchodialator)
| * Sx relief during maintenance * Asthma * Emphysema * Acute/Chronic Bronchitis * Anaphylaxis
| Tachycardia , heart...
