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

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
