Quiz yourself by thinking what should be in each of the black spaces below before clicking on it to display the answer.

How do antiplatelet agents (ADP Inhibitors) Plavix and Effien work?   Bind to ADP receptors on platelets  
What are examples of ADP inhibitors?   Plavix and Effien  
How do antiplatelet agents (Thromboxane A2 Inhibitor) work?   Aspirin prevents cyclo-oxygenase from producing the prostaglandin TXA2  
Example of a TXA2 Inhibitor:   aspirin

What drugs does the reversal agent Vitamin K work on?   Coumadin/warfarin  
What drugs does the reversal agent Protamine work on?   Heparin  
What drugs does the reversal agent Amicar work on?   Thrombolytics (streptokinase, urokinase, tissue plasminogen activators)  
What plasma protein binds to GP IIb/IIIa receptors on platelets?   Fibrin  
What drugs stimulates the body's production of plasmin?   Tissuse plasminogen activators (TNK, Alteplase, Reteplase, SK, urokinase)  
What drug is given for left atrial mural thrombus, deep vein thrombosis and preventing thrombus on mechanical prosthetic cardiac valves?   Coumadin/warfarin

What drug is given to stop a CVA in progress?   Tenecteplase (TNK)  
What thrombolytic enzyme is found naturally in the human kidney   Urokinase  
What drug is used to prevent acute thrombosis of intracoronary stents?   Clopidogrel/Plavix  
Platelet production of Thromboxane A2 is inhibited by:   Aspirin  
List an example of an ADP antagonist   Plavix

Following PTCA a cardiologist may wish to prevent thrombus formation by ordering   Eptafibatide/Integrillin (works on GpIIbIIIa)  
What role does Calcium and CaMP play?   Help project outward the GPIIbIIIa receptors (causes it to change shape)  
Bivalrudin/ Angiomax is a   Direct thrombin inhibitor
