    • nebulizer, repeat as needed.
  2. IPRATROPIUM
    • NAME/CLASS: Atrovent/Anticholinergic
    • DES: bronchodilator for respiratory emergencies that causes bronchial dilation & dries respiratory tract secretions by blocking acetylcholine reseptors.
    • IND: bronchospasm associated w/ asthma, COPD & inhaled irritants.
    • CI: hypersensitivity to atropine or its derivs, or as a primary treatement for acute bronchospasm, nut allergy.
    • PC: elderly, cardiovascular disease & hypertension
    • DOSE:
  3. CHLORDIAZEPOXIDE
    • NAME/CLASS: librium/sedative, hypnotic

    • DOSE: 50-100 mg IV/IM
  4. DIPHENYDRAMINE
    • NAME/CLASS: benadryl/antihistamine
    • DES: blocks histamine release, thereby reducing bronchoconstriction, vasodilation & edema.
    • IND: anaphylaxis, allergic reations & dystonic reactions.
    • CI: asthma & other lower respiratory diseases
    • PC: may induce hypotension, headache, palpitations, tachycardia, sedation, drowsiness & or disturbed coordination.
    • DOSE: 25-50 mg IV/IM
  5. FENTANYL
    • NAME/CLASS: sublimaze/narcotic analgesic
    • DES: potent synthetic narcotic analgesic similar to morphie & meperidine with more rapid & less prolonged action.
    • IND: induce sedation for endotracheal intubation
    • CI: MAO inhibitors w/in 14 days, myasthenia gravis.
    • PC: increased ICP, elderly, debilitated, COPD, respiratory problems, hepatic & renaly insufficiency.
    • DOSE: 25-100 mcg slowly IV (2-3 min). Ped: 2 mcg/kg slow IV/IM.
  6. LORAZEPAM
    • NAME/CLASS: ativan/sedative
    • DES: most potent benzodiazepine available. strong antianxity, hypnotic & skeletal muscle relaxant properties. relatively short half life.
    • IND: sedation for cardioversion & status epilepticus.
    • CI: sensitivity to benzodiazepines
    • PC: narrow-angle glucoma, depression or psychosis, coma, shock, acute alcohol intoxication, renal or hepatic impairment, organic brain syndrome, myasthenia gravis, GI disorders, elderly, debilitated, limited pulmonary reserve.
    • DOSE: sedation: 2-4 mg IM, 0.5-2 mg IV Ped: 0.03-0.5 mg/kg IV/IM/PR up to 4mg | status epilepticus: 2 mg slow IV/PR (2mg/min) Ped: 0.1 mg/kg slow IV/PR (2-5 min)
  7. METOCLOPRAMIDE
    • NAME/CLASS: reglan/antiemetic
    • DES: dopamine antagonist similar to procainamide but w/ few antidysrhythmic or anesthetic properties. antiemetic properties stem form rapid gastric emptying and desensitization of the vomiting reflex.
    • IND: nausea & vomiting
    • CI: hypersensitivity, allergy to sulfite agents, seizure disorders, pheochromocytoma, mechanical GI obstruction or perforation, & breast cancer.
    • PC: CHF, hypokalemia, renal impairment, GI hemorrhage, intermittent porphyria.
    • DOSE: 10-20 mg IM; 10 mg slow IV (over 1-2 min). Ped 1-2 mg/kg.
  8. MORPHINE SULFATE
    • NAME/CLASS: morphine/narcotic analgesic
    • DES: potent analgesic & sedative that causes some vasodilation, reducing venus return & reduced myocardial O2 demand.
    • IND: moderate to severe pain & in MI & to reduce renous return in pulmonary edema.
    • CI: hypersensitivity to opiates, undiagnosed head or abdominal injury, hypotension, or volume depletion, acute asthma, COPD, severe respiratory depression or pulmonary edema due to chemical inhalation.
    • PC: elderly, children or debilitated patients. naloxone should be readily available to counteract the effects of morphine.

    • IND: narcotic and synthetic narcotic overdose, coma of unknown origin.
    • CI: hypersensitivitiy to the drug, non-narcotic-induced respiratory depression.
    • PC: possible dependency (including newborns). 1/2 life shorter than than most narcotics (pt may return to overdose state)
