    Arrhythmias, chest px, bradycardia, HTN, HA, anxiety, decreased urine output, metabolic acidosis.
  2. Calcium Chloride Side Effects
    Bradycardia, aystole, hypotension, peripheral vasodilation, metallic taste, local necrosis.
  3. Labetalol Side Effects
    Fatigue/weakness, orthostatic hypotension, arrhythmias, CHF, pulmonary edema.
  4. Phenytoin Side Effects
    Local venous irritation, CNS depression.
  5. Adenosine Side Effects
    Flushing, SOB, chest px, HA, hypotension, metallic taste, palpitations, diaphoresis.
  6. Adenosine Class
    Endogenous Nucleotide
  7. Phenytoin Class
    Anticonvulsant, antiarrhythmic.
  8. Labetalol Class
  9. Calcium Chloride Class
  10. Norepinephrine Class
    Vasopressor, alpha/beta agonist.
  11. Adenosine MOA
    Slows conduction time through the AV node. Slows heart rate. Acts directly on sinus pacemaker cells.
  12. Norepinephrine MOA
    Peripheral vasoconstrictor of arterial/venous beds.
  13. Phenytoin MOA
    Inhibits the spread of seizure acitivity through motor cortex.
  14. Labetalol MOA
    Selectively blocks a1 receptors and nonselectively blocks B receptors.
  15. Calcium Chloride MOA
    Increases cardiac contractile (and inotropic effect). May enhance ventricular automaticity.
  16. Calcium Chloride Indications
    Hypocalcemia, magnesium sulfate OD, hyperkalemia, tx of insect bites.
  17. Labetalol Indications
    Hypertensive crisis.
  18. Phenytoin Indications
    Status epilecticus, arrhythmias due to digitalis toxicity.
  19. Norepinephrine Indications
    Shock, hypotension.
  20. Adenosine Indications
    Conversion of PSVT to sinus rhythm.
  21. Adenosine Contraindications
    2nd or 3rd degree block or Sick Sinus Syndrome. Afib, Aflutter, Vtach.
  22. Norepinephrine Contraindications
    Hypotension due to hypovolemia.
  23. Phenytoin Contraindications
    Any arrhythmia except those due to digitalis toxicity.
  24. Labetalol Contraindications
    Bronchial asthma, CHF, heart block, bradycardia, cardiogenic shock.
  25. Calcium Chloride Contraindications
    Hypercalcemia, VF during cardiac resuscitation, digitalis toxicity.
  26. Calcium Chloride Dose
    2-4 mg/kg of a 10% solution every 10 minutes.
  27. Labetalol Dose
    20 mg slow IV with 40-80 mg every 10 minutes as needed up to 300 mg total. Or 2 mg/min continous infusion up to 300 mg total dose.
  28. Phenytoin Dose
    10-15 mg/kg slow IV.
  29. Norepinephrine Dose
    0.5-30 mcg/min IV infusion.
  30. Adenosine Dose
    6 mg IVP followed by 20-30 cc NS flush, may repeat in 1-2 minutes with 12mg IVP followed by 20-30 cc NS flush, may repeat one more time at 12 mg IVP followed by 20-30 cc NS flush.
