  1. albuterol sulfate

    mechanism of action
    indications and field use
    B agonist(primarily B2) relaxes bronchial smooth muscle, resulting in bronchodilation; also relaxes vascular and uterine smooth muscle decreases airway resistance

    treatment of bronchospasm

  15. magnesium sulfate

    magnesium sulfate

    electrolyte, tocolytic
  16. Magnesium sulfate

    mechanism of action-

    • pharmacology-second most plentiful intracellular cation;essential to enhance intracellular potassium replenishment and activity of many enzymes; important role in neurochemical transmission and muscular excitabilitydecreases myocardial irritabilbity and neuromuscular irritability 
    • Clinical-cardia reduces ventricular irritablity,especially with associated with hypomagnesemia;inhibition of muscular excitability
  17. Magnesium sulfate

    indications and field use
    • torsade de pointes
    • VF/pulseless VT refactory to lidocaine and/or amiodarone
    • hypomagnesemia
    • pre-term labor
    • pregnancy-induced hypertension
    • hyperreactive airway-severe asthma
  18. magnesium sulfate

    • hypermagnesemia
    • caution-patients with impaired renal function and preexisting heart blocks
    • caution-when used with barbituates, narcotics or other hyponotics(MS due to the additive central depressive effects of magnesium)
  19. magnesium sulfate

    adverse reactions
    • CVS-hypotension,flushing,circulatory collapse,depressed cardiac funciton,heart block,asystole,smooth muscle relaxant
    • RESP-respiratory depression or paralysis
    • mother or child 24 hours later 
    • CNS-sweating,drowsiness,hypothermia,depressed reflexes progressing to flaccidity and paralysis 
    • mother and/or child 24 hours later
    • GI-nausea 
    • GU-mild diuretic
    • Meta-hypocalcemia,hypermagnesemia
  20. magnesium sulfate
