Flashcards in Beta Blockers Deck (26):
1

Sotalol trade name

betapace

2

sotalol drug classification

beta blocker, antidysrhythmic group 3

3

sotalol expected effect

block beta 1/ 2 receptors leading to antidysrhythmic effect, prolong action potential. prolong QT interval

4

sotalol why use

ventricular dysrhythmias, maintain sinus rhythm with atrial fibrillation/ flutter

5

sotalol doses

80mg bid up to 240-320mg
ventricular dysrhythmias 75mg/ day

6

sotalol route admin

PO

7

sotalol adverse effects

prolong QT, CHF, ventricular dysrhythmias, leukopenia, thrombocytopenia, agranulocytosis, bronchospasm

8

sotalol nursing considerations

- requires specialized care setting (ECG monitoring)
- do not abrupt discontinue, adjust doses slowly
- QT syndrome (monitor ECG, pulses)
teach
- report symptoms CHF

9

nadolol trade names

corgard, syn-nadol

10

nadolol drug class

beta adrenergic receptor blocker

11

nadolol expected effect

beta blocker, blocks beta 1 in heart, beta 2 in lungs, uterus, circ system. Reduces effects like hormones (EP) on heart & reduces BP

12

nadolol why use

chronic stable angina pectoris
hypertension

13

nadolol route admin

PO

14

nadolol dosages

40/day, may ^ to 40-240mg/day angina & 40-320 for hypertension

15

nadolol adverse reactions

CHF, AV block, pancreatitis, agranulocytosis, thrombocytopenia, bronchospasm, pulmonary edema

16

nadolol black box warning

abrupt discontinuation results in MI, ischemia, dysrhythmias, hypertension, withdraw slowly

17

nadolol nursing considerations

BP, pulse, respiration, watch for orthostatic hypotension

18

metoprolol trade names

Nu-Metop, Lopressor, Troprol XL

19

metoprolol drug classification

beta blocker, antihypertensive, antianginal

20

metoprolol expected effect

lowers blood pressure by blocking beta & reducing high renin levels

21

metoprolol why use

hypertension, MI, angina, heart failure, cardiomyopathy

22

metoprolol doses

see paper

23

metoprolol routes of admin

PO, IV

24

metoprolol black box warning

abrupt discontinuation > may cause MI, dysrhythmias, ischemia

25

metoprolol adverse effects

bradycardia, cardiac arrest, AV block, edema, angina, agranulocytosis, eosinophilia, thrombocytopenia, purport, bronchospasm

26

metoprolol nursing considerations

BP, renal hepatic studies, take after meals & bedtime to prevent orthostatic hypotension
therapeutic response: lower BP & angina
