Who do you NOT give Misoprostol to? bucally on INTUBATED pts.
What is the onset of Misoprostol Rapid, once absorbed. It can take a while for it to dissolve.
How is Misoprostol metabolized? hepatic metabolism
How many doses do you give of Misoprostol? Usually give 2 doses then move on to hemabate or Methergine.
What is the abbreviation for MAGNESIUM SULFATE? MgSO4
Does Anesthesia order Magnesium sulfate? NO, but it will affect our anesthesia.
What is the indication for giving Misoprostol? Indicated for uterine atony, abortions, cervical ripening, peptic ulcer disease
What is the "bolus" dose and infusion rate for Magnesium Sulfate? dose: 4 grams over 20 min, 2-3 grams/hour infusion;
Why do we give Magnesium Sulfate? treatment of choice to prevent eclampsia, control and prevent seizures, tocolytic therapyAlso used for preterm labor and shut off before C-section.
What is the duration of Magnesium Sulfate? duration: 20-30 min with good renal perfusion
What are some effects associated with Magnesium sulfate administration? POTENTIATES nondepolarizers and depolarizers, competes with calcium and causes a decrease in amount of Ach released at myoneural junctioncan cause pulmonary edema
What do you need to monitor when giving Magnesium Sulfate? must monitor magnesium levels,
What is the treatment for Magnesium toxicity? Calcium gluconate 1 gram over 2 min, fluids, diuresis
What is a normal Magnesium level? 1.5-2 mg/dl
