  1. a vasodilation
  2. b decreased BP bc it vasodilates, but can also increase BP by increasing CO
  3. c they inhibit/block the SNS response - decrease HR, contractility, stroke volume, CO, BP, AV node conduction
  4. d hyperkalemia
  5. e bleeding!
  6. f brings BP down really quickly - monitor BP every minute! drug of choice for hypertensive crisis (malignant HTN)
  7. g slows ventricular rate. decreases afterload. more of an antiarrhythmic. Used for HTN, Afib, Aflutter.
  8. h Increased BP
  9. i death from brain (intracerebral) hemorhage esp. if over age 75, reprofusion arrhythmias (PVB, PAB, Afib/Aflutter) - has plenty of O2 all of a sudden, go away on their own (means the drug is working!)
  10. j angina, MI, HTN, CHF, shock. consider early admin. in select pts: suspected ischemic chest pain, UA (change in angina pattern), acute pulm. edema (if BP > 90 systolic).
  11. k overall mortality from AMI, nonfatal reinfarction, nonfatal stroke. will not do anything to clot already there!
  12. l goal is to ELIMINATE pain (ZERO on the pain scale)
  13. m bleeding from ALL sites - urine, stool, sputum, puncture sites, nosebleeds. Monitor labs - Hb, Hct, platelets
  14. n intropin (dopamine), dobutamine (dobutrex), milrinone (primacor), digitalis (lanoxin) - used for CHF & shock to increase contractility - to increase CO
  15. o mainly hypotension (bc it's a dilator). Extreme caution if systolic BP < 90 and w/RV infarction, limit drop to 10% if pt normotensive, limit drop to 30% if pt hypertensive. Watch for HA, syncope, tachycardia.
  16. p decreases pain of ischemia, venous blood return to heart, preload & cardiac O2 consumption. Increases venous dilation and cardiac collateral flow. Dilates coronary arteries.
  17. q PREVENTS clot formation & from getting bigger.
  18. r antiplatelet - inhibits platelet aggregation by selectively preventing binding of ADP to its receptor. Prolongs bleeding time.
  19. s increases force of contraction (squeeze). particularly used for acute exacerbations of CHF where BP has fallen.
  20. t monitor BP & HR. contraindicated if HR < 60 bpm, insulin dependent DM (monitor sugar more often), asthma, PVD
  21. u Watch for bleeding especially when given with NSAIDs, ASA, heparin, or coumadin
  22. v electrolyte imbalances (especially hypokalemia - which makes a person more likely to have digoxin toxicity if on that as well)
  23. w hypotension (orthostatic hypotension early on) - Monitor BP!, hyperkalemia, persistent cough (have to get off drug)
  24. x used for angina, MI (standard of care for all post MI pts indefinitely), CHF (only stable, chronic - not early mgmt), tachyarrhythmias.
  25. y decreases afterload by preventing vasoconstriction, decreases preload by preventing sodium & water retention (inhibits aldosterone), vasodilator.
  26. z potassium sparing diuretic used in MI and CHF
  27. aa STEMI and NSTEMI, in combination with fibrinolytics. PREVENTS clot formation.
  28. ab hypotension - monitor BP, HR, rhythm closely. may need to reduce dosage.
  29. ac antiplatelet (PREVENTS clot formation & from getting bigger)
  30. ad causes diuresis - opposes renin so it causes excretion of sodium & water to treat fluid overload. used for ACUTE episodes of CHF.
  31. ae CHEW the tablet. standard therapy for new pain suggestive of AMI. better to use baby aspirin bc it's flavored. if allergic give plavix.
  32. af used for STEMI, consider in NSTEMI, evidence of acute pulmonary edema. also if systolic BP > 90 and no hypovolemia.
  33. ag BREAK UP clots already formed. Used in MI (STEMI ONLY: w/chest pain > 20 min & < 12 hrs), CVA, PE. Max age for use - 75.
  34. ah door to drug time - 30 minutes!
  35. ai used for HTN, for all post MI pts indefinitely, CHF. reduces mortality & CHF from AMI. Prevents scarring of LV that leads to HF (LV remodeling).
  36. aj depression of ventilation (consult MD), N/V common (can premed w/zofran), bradycardia, drop in BP (increase fluids, elevate feet, lower head)
  37. ak losartan (cozaar), valsartan (diovan), candesartan (atacand), irbesartan (avapro), telmisartan (micardis)
  38. al hypotension (don't give if SBP < 100), bradycardia, AV block, extreme fatigue/lethargy, impotence
  39. am used for DVT, PE, MI (STEMI & NSTEMI), DIC, A-Fib, post PTCA or CABG with some lytics if < 48 hrs. For STEMI with/without reperfusion up to 8 days.
  40. an diuretics used for HTN, CHF, renal failure
  41. ao drug of choice for acute pain d/t MI. decreases pain of ischemia, decreases anxiety (gives feeling of euphoria), decreases extension of ischemia by decreasing O2 demands.
  42. ap ALL NSAIDs except ASA (aspirin) must be DC'd for good.
  43. aq give "low & slow." 2 to 4 mg every 5-10 min titrated to effect. no cap on the dose. given IV push over 5 min.
  44. ar diuretics used to decrease preload (volume)
  45. as ACS w/NO ST segment elevation (NSTEMI), non-Q wave MI, UA, CA reocclusion post PCI or with fibrinolytics given 24 hrs before balloon/stent.
  46. at with or without lytics for 14 days, with or without reperfusion, NSTEMI - give for 6-9 mos, STEMI - gie for 1 year. ALL STEMIs and NSTEMIs get Plavix.
  47. au used for HTN, MI. side effect - hypotension, so monitor BP!
  48. av antiplatelet that PREVENTS clot formation, prevents platelet aggregation and vasoconstriction. used for CAD, post MI (STEMI and NSTEMI).
