Four classes of long acting bronchodilators   1. inflammatory mediators inhibitor 2. beta adrinergic agonists 3. leukotriene antagonists 4. phosphodiesterase inhibitors  
mediators that actively constrict smooth muscle (4)   histamine, seratonin, platelet activating factor, leukotrienes  
receptors that NE and Epi act on   beta 1 and 2; alpha 1 and 2 adrinergic receptors  
receptors that Ach acts on & ultimate effect in the airway   M1 and M2 receptors (smooth muscle contraction in airway)  
Digoxin   cardiac glycoside - increases contractlity by increasing intracellular [Ca++] tx-heart failure  
Dopamine   Dopamine agonist low doses: incr. CO, TPR, venous tone. High doses: incr. TPR, pulmonary vascular resistance, produces vasoconstriction  
positive inotropes   improve cardiac function by increasing contractility. drug classes: beta adrinergic, dopamine agonists, phosphodiesterase inhibitors, cardiac glycosides tx-heart failure  
cardiac antihypertensives   decrease afterload of heart. beta blockers, Ca++ channel blockers tx-HT, heart failure  
beta adrinergic agonists - prototype drugs (3)   isoproteronol (B1 and 2), Dobutamine (B1), Terbutaline (B2)  
Dobutamine   Beta 1 adrinergic agonist (cardioselective) tx-cardiogenic shock, heart failure  
Terbutaline   Beta 2 adrinergic agonist Tx- asthma, emphysema  
Isoproteronol   Beta 1 and 2 adrinergic agonist (not cardioselective)  
Milnirone   phosphodiesterase inhibitor (results in incresed Ca++ release) tx-heart failure, pulmonary problems  
Brimonidine   sympathomimetic - alpha 2 agonist tx. HT  
Norephinephrine   alpha 1 agonist - vasoconstrictor tx-hypovolemia  
prazosin   aplha 1 blocker (causes vasodilation) tx-HT  
Clonidine   alpha 2 antagonist - sympatholytic - tx-HT  
Furosemide   Diuretic - decr. blood volume tx-HT, edema, CHF, renal failure  
positive inotropes   increase contractility to increase BP (classes: Beta adrinergic and dopamine agonists) tx-circulatory shock  
mecamylamine   ganglionic blocker, nicotinic antagonist tx-severe hypertension (crisis), BP control during aortic surgery  
Tolcapone   COMT inhibitor - leads to incr. brain [dopamine] tx-parkinsons
