Flashcards in Cholinergic Pharmacology Deck (13):
1

vasculature (endothelial cells)

release of NO and vasodilation

2

eye iris (pupillae sphincter muscle)

contraction and miosis

3

ciliary muscle

contraction and accommodation of lens to near vision

4

salivary and lacrimal glands

thin and watery secretions

5

bronchi

constriction; increase secretions

6

heart

bradycardia, decrease conduction velocity, AV block at HIGH doses, slight decrease in contractility

7

GI tract

increase tone and secretions; relax sphincters

8

urinary bladder

contraction of detrusor muscle
relaxation of sphincter

9

sweat glands

diaphoresis (profuse sweating)

10

reproductive tract, male

erection

11

uterus

variable

12

blockade of sympathetics in arterioles

vasodilation
increase peripheral blood flow
hypotension

13

blockade of sympathetics in veins

vasodilation
pooling of blood
DECREASE venous return
DECREASE cardiac output
