Categories of respiratory drugs are (9) bronchodilator drugs corticosteroid drugs, leukotriene formation inhibitor drugs leukotriene receptor blocker drugs monoclonal antibody drugs mast cell stabilizer drugs, expectorant drugs, and drugs used to treat tuberculosis drugs used to stop smoki
--drugs relax the smooth muscle layer around the --, allowing then to dilate, which increases air flow to the lungs. Bronchodilator bronchioles
Brochodilator drugs are used to prevent or treat --and --, -- -- -- --(COPD), -- --, and -- asthma bronchospasm chronic obstructive pulmonary disease chronic bronchitis emphysema
The --and --of the respiratory system normally have open air passageways that are surrounded by a layer of smooth musle. bronchi bronchioles
--drugs relax the smooth muscle (--) and increase the air flow Bronchodilator bronchodilation
-- -- -- drugs stimulate --receptors in the smooth muscle around the --by mimicking the action that --(from the sympathetic division of the nervous system) has on these receptors Beta-Against Bronchodilator beta2 bronchioles epinephrine
beta-against bronchodilator drugs are also known as sympathomimetic bronchodilator drugs
beta-against bronchodilator drugs are called -- --drugs because they mimic the action of the -- --of the -- --. sympathomimetic bronchodilator sympathetic division nervous system
albuterol (category, aka) beta against bronchodilator drugs Proventil HFA, Ventolin HFA
