1

What effects are seen during cardiac failure?

Inability of heart to pump blood effectively
- Force of contraction of Cardiac Muscle
- dec CO; dec BP; Dec Renal Q
Edema in legs/Lungs
Renal failure

2

What is the action of all positive Inotropes?

They affect the availability of intracellular Ca or inc sensitivity of contractile proteins

3

What is the basic action of cardiac steroids?

inhibit the Na/K ATPase

4

What is the basic action of Phospodiesterase inhibitors?

Block cAMP degradation
- inc [cAMP]; activating cAMP dependent protein kinases
- stimulate Ca influx through VG channels,
- inc release and reaccumulation of CA in SR

5

What is the basic action of Ca2+ sensitivity stimulants

Inc the effect of existing Ca2+ levels

6

What is the basic action of B-adrenergic agonists?

Leads to inc cAMP production, more forceful contractions due to inc calcium presence

7

How are cardiac steroids different from other average steroids?

They are characterized by their 5B, 14B stereochemistry, which results in a curved, or convexely shaped molecule

8

What are the 2 different groups of cardiac steroids?

1. Cardenolides
2. Bufadienolides

9

Cardenolides
1. Origin
2. Chemical structure

1. Plant Origin
2. C-17R group is an alpha-B-unsaturated butyrolactone

10

Bufadienolides
1. Origin
2. Chemical structure

1. Found in Toad Skin
2. C-17R group is a Pyrrone Ring

11

Most cardiac sterols naturally occur as ______ and have approximately ______ sugars attached where?

Glycosides
1-4 sugars
3B-OH of steroid

12

Digitalis Purpurea

Flox Glove (purple), it is the commercial source of digitoxin

13

Digitalis lanata

Woolly foxglove (white) commercial source of digoxin

14

in 1785, Digitalis leaves were used to treat several things including swelling. What were some remarkable side effects of the drug?

Yellow Vision
Nausea

15

What kept most physicians from using digitalis preparations until the 1900s?

Narrow therapeutic index

16

What site difference between digitoxigenin, Digoxigenin and Gitoxigenin makes the large pharmacological difference in their chemistry?

12-OH (Digoxin)
12-H (Digitoxin)
16-OH (gitoxigenin); pharmaceutically irrevelevant

17

What is the main cardiac glycoside found in Digitalis Lanata leaves?

Lanatoside C

18

How is Digoxin extracted from Digitalis leaves?

Lantoside C is treated w/ Bglucosidase, to form acetyldigoxin, which is then treated with NaOH and neutrialized with Ch3COOH to become digoxin

19

Inhibition of Na/K-ATPase has what effect on calcium levels?

Increased intracellular Na levels --> increased release of Ca from intracellular stores

20

Why is simultaneous treatment of Lasix and Digoxin dangerous?

Lasix lowers extracellular K levels, which increases phosphorylation and eventually the binding affinity of Digoxin

21

What is the result of coadministration of Digoxin and Erythromycin?

Erythromycin kills microbes that would otherwise help metabolize orally available digoxin, increasing the amount of Digoxin available.

22

What neuro-hormonal effect does Digoxin have in CHF patients?

Inc Parasympathetic (vagal activation)
and decreased sympathetic activity

23

What is the preferred cardiac glycoside for CHF?

Digoxin

24

What is the metabolism for Digoxin?

minimal (80% unchanged) Hepatic Metabolism by:
- Hydrolysis
- Sulfation
- Glucuronidation

25

What result would be seen from Quinidine coadminstration with Digoxin?

Increased plasma levels of Digoxin

26

What result would be seen with coadminstration of Verapamil and Digoxin

Increased absorption of Digoxin
(Verapamil inhibits intestinal pgp efflux of digoxin)

27

What result would be seen with coadministration of Rifampin and Digoxin

Decreased absorption of Digoxin
(Rifampin induces intestinal pgp efflux expression)

28

What would the results of coadministration of Bile Acid binding resins such as Cholestryamine and Digoxin be?

Decreased Digoxin Absorption

29

What is the plasma protein binding, onset, and 1/2 life for Digoxin?

PPB - 30%
Onset - 15-30min
T1/2 - 1-2 days

30

What is the plasma protein binding, onset and 1/2 life for digitoxin?

PPB - ~95%
onset - 05-2hrs
T1/2 - 4-7 days
