  1. DESCRIPTION:
    Nitorglycerin (Nitrostat)
    Nitrate
    RAPID SMOOTH MUSCLE RELAXANT

    • REDUCES:
    • - PERIPHERAL VASCULAR
    • RESISTANCE
    • - BLOOD PRESSURE
    • - VENOUS RETURN
    • - CARDIAC WORKLOAD
  2. DESCRIPTION:
    Dobutamine (Dobutrex)
    Sympathomimetic
    • Synthetic catecholamine and beta agent
    • that increases strength of cardiac contraction
    • w/out appreciably increasing rate.
  3. DESCRIPTION:
    Nalaxone (Narcan)
    Narcotic Antagonist
    • Pure narcotic antagonist that blocks the effects of
    • both synthetic and natural overdoses.

    May reverse respiratory depression.
  4. DESCRIPTION:
    Dopamine (Inotropin)
    Sympathomimetic
    Naturally occuring catecholamine that increases cardiac output with appreciably increasing myocardial oxygen consumption.

    It maintains renal and mesentric blood flow while inducing vasoconstriction and increasing systolic blood pressure.
  5. DESCRIPTION:
    Sodium Bicarbonate (NaHCO3)
    Alkalizing Agent
    • Provides vascular bicarbonate to assist buffer system
    • in reducing the effects of metabolic acidosis
    • and in the treatment of some overdoses.
  6. DESCRIPTION:
    Morphine Sulfate (Morphine)
    Narcotic Analgesic
    • Potent analgesic and sedative
    • that causes some vasodilation
    • reducing venous return and
    • reducing myocardial oxygen demand.
