Albuterol Selective beta-2 agonist that stimulates adrenergic receptors of the sympathomimetic nervous system resulting in smooth muscle relaxation in the bronchial tree and peripheral vasculature. Smooth muscle relaxation Bronchospasm, Asthma
Atropine Blocks acetylcholine at muscarinic receptor sites Blocks parasympathetic response and allows the sympathetic response to take over; resulting in the increase of cardiac output and the drying of secretion sludge Symptomatic bradycardia, Asystole, PEA
Diazepam Acts on parts of the limbic system, the thalamus, and hypothalamus producing calming effects; Potentiates effects of inhibitory neurotransmitters. Increased seizure threshold Status epilepticus, transient analgesia, delirium tremens.
