Adenosine MOA: opens K channels and blocks Ca influx in SA/AV nodes, slows AV conduction, increases AV refractory period USE: SVT SE: transient asystole
Amiodarone MOA: Blocks K, Ca and Na channels and B receptors USE: SVT, V tach, V fib SE: Hypo/hyperthyroidism, photosensitivity, BLUE/GRAY SKIN, PULMONARY FIBROSIS
Carvedilol MOA: Blocks B1, B2 and Alpha 1 receptors, vasodilation USE: Heart failure, decrease cardiac remodeling, HTN SE: orthostatic hypotension, dizziness, fatigue, bradycardia
Clonidine MOA: Alpha 2 agonist USE: HTN, opioid withdrawal SE: sedation and dry mouth
Digoxin MOA: Inhibit Na/K ATPase, increase intracellular Ca USE: Heart Failure SE: cardiac arrhythmias, nausea, vomiting, blurred vision, yellow vision
Dofetilide MOA: K channel blocker USE: prvention and treatment of A.fib and A. flutter SE: QT prolongation, torsades de pointes
Esmolol MOA: B-1 blocker USE: Class 2 Antiarrhythmic agent, Sinus Tach, SVT SE: hypotension, bradycardia
Fenoldopam MOA: D-1 agonist, arteriolar vasodilation, increase renal blood flow USE: Hypertensive Emergencies SE: hypotension, decreased serum K level
Hydralazine MOA: Alters intracellular Ca, vasodilation of arterioles, decrease afterload USE: HTN, Heart Failure SE: Edema, refelx tachycardia, MI, lupus syndrome
Mannitol MOA: Osmotic Diuretic USE: Oliguric renal failure, cerebral edema, acute glaucoma SE: Transient volume expansion, pulmonary edema, HF
Methyldopa MOA: Alpha 2 agonist USE: HTN in pregnancy SE: Positive Direct Coombs test, hemolytic anemia
Minoxidil MOA: opens K channels in vascular smooth muscle USE: Severe HTN, Topical tx of Alopecia SE: reflex tachycardia, angina, pericarditis, edema, pulmonary HTN, hypertricosis
Nesiritide MOA: Recombinant human B-type natriuretic peptide, dilates venous/arterial smooth muscle, decrease venous pressure/preload/congestion, dyspnea USE: Heart Failure SE: Hypotension
Nitroglycerin MOA: releases NO causing vasodilation, increase coronary blood flow, decrease O2 demand USE: Stable angina SE: headache, hypotension, syncope, reflex tachycardia
Nitroprusside MOA: vasodilator of both venous and arteriolar smooth muscle USE: HTN crisis, Acute HF SE: Cyanide toxicity, hypotension, headache
Propafenone MOA: Blocks Na channels (Class 1C) in cardiac tissue USE: SVT, life threatening ventricular arrythmias SE: arrythmia, GI disturbances, dizziness
Quinidine MOA: Blocks Na (Class 1A) and K channels in cardiac tissue USE: SVT and Ventricular arrythmias SE: arrhythmia, blurred vision, tinnitus, photophobia, diarrhea
Sotalol MOA: Class 3 K channel blocker USE: SVT, life threatening Ventricular Arrhythmias SE: arrythmias, torsades

Use these flashcards to help memorize information. Look at the large card and try to recall what is on the other side. Then click the card to flip it. If you knew the answer, click the green Know box. Otherwise, click the red Don't know box.

When you've placed seven or more cards in the Don't know box, click "retry" to try those cards again.

If you've accidentally put the card in the wrong box, just click on the card to take it out of the box.

You can also use your keyboard to move the cards as follows:

If you are logged in to your account, this website will remember which cards you know and don't know so that they are in the same box the next time you log in.

When you need a break, try one of the other activities listed below the flashcards like Matching, Snowman, or Hungry Bug. Although it may feel like you're playing a game, your brain is still making more connections with the information to help you out.
