  1. local anasthetics - mechanism of action

    local administration
    • mech= suppress pain by blocking inpulse (Na+ Channels)
    • -Esters= (novacain) metab in bld
    • -Amides- (lidocaine) metab in liver

    • Locally admin= block small unmyelinated neurons BFORE larger myelinated
    • =pain lost first, then temp, tounch, deep pressure
    • = blocks both sensory and motor neurons

    • If used centrally, excites then depresses the CNS and cardiac function
    • **EPI is used to becuase of local vasoconstriction properties and to prolong anes. effects
  2. Epidural
    • Spinal/subarachnoid(CSF circulation)
    • Lumbar region

  6. Minimal Alveolar COncentration

    Nitrous Oxide
    • MAC
    • [ ] that prodices immobility in 50% exposed to painful stimuilation

    • Prevent and reverse cardiac remodeling
    • A2 and Aldosterone
  21. 4 therapeutic uses of ACE Inhibitors
    • HTN
    • HF- from acute MI and Left Vent. dysfunction
    • Diabetic and non-D nephropathy= Delay onset / slow progression of renal failure b/c of decrease in Kidney remodeling
    • Prevent MI, stroke, death in pt's at high risk for CV events
  22. Renal Artery Stenosis
    #1 problem w/ ACE Inhibitors

    constricts vessels, causing crappy blood flow
  23. If we inhibit ACE/Kinase II...
    promote the metabolic effects of Bradykinin (vasodilation and inc. permeability):

    • angiodema
    • constant cough
  24. adverse effects of ACE inhibs
    • 1st dose HypoTN
    • angiodema
    • cough
    • hyperkalemia
    • renal failure
    • fetal injury
  25. ACE preload and afterload
    vasodilation witll cause both decrease
  26. Ca channel blockers

    Therapeutic doses affect:
    prevent contraction of smooth muscles

    • T affect:
    • peripheral arterioles and arteries
    • cardiac muscle - decrease force of contract.
    • SA & AV node - dec. impulse speed/conduction
    • Coupling of cardiac Ca channels to Beta 1 receptors - Decrease force, rate, and conduction
  27. activating B1 receptors will cause a 2nd messenger to open Ca++ channels
    activating B1 receptors will cause a 2nd messenger to open Ca++ channels
  28. the "-pines" drugs


    other blockers
    • Ca++ blockers
    • affects only the arterioles and NOT the HR

    others= affect HR and atrerioles
  29. Ca blocker that do not affect HR have a SE of Reflex Tachycaria
     - can take Beta blocker to compete tachycard

    Ca blocker that affects both HR and arterioles DOES NOT cause Reflex Tachycardia
    • Ca blocker that do not affect HR have a SE of Reflex Tachycaria
    •  - can take beta blocker

    Ca blocker that affects both HR and arterioles DOES NOT cause Reflex Tachycardia

    • HTN
    • Dysrhyth

    Se= same as previous Ca++ blocker
  31. Nimodopine / Nimotop*

    • will dec afterload

    NO significant affect on preload

    • Sympatholytics (alpha blockers)
    •   - prevent sympathetic vasocontriction
  34. What vasodilators do...
    • decrease the work load of the heart
    • work on resistance vessels (arterioles)
    • -reduce resistance to LV pumping
    • -decrease afterload
    • work on Capacitance vessels (veins)
    • -reduce amount of blood return to the heart
    • -decrease preload (and therefore BP)
  35. SE of vasodilators
    • Postural hypoTN
    • -venous relaxation
    • -blood pools in venous side

    • Reflex Tachycarida
    • -Central-sympathetic stimulation
    • -Peripheral- baroreceptors

    • Increase blood volume (over time)
    • -decrease renal blood flow (RAA)

    • Arteriole and venous dilation
    • Immediate effects and short 1/2 life
    • Given very slowly IV push
    • Need to protect from light

    • thiocyanide is a metabolic by-product of use and can poison pt.
    • Need to check levels is Nipride in use for >3 days
  37. Beta blockers therp effects
    • dec HR
    • dec force of contraction
    • dec velocity of impulse conduction
