CALCIUM CHANNEL BLOCKERS SIMPLIFIED
 
03:35
Calcium channel blockers are usually well absorbed through the git which means that they go through first pass metabolism . However once entered into the blood stream calcium channel blockers are highly bound to plasma proteins, after doing their action calcium channel blockers are then metabolized by the liver and excreted renally.

Calcium Channel Blockers, as the name suggests, prevents or reduces the opening of these channels. There are different classes of Calcium channel blockers, but almost of all of them acts on the L-type voltage-gated calcium channel. Therefore, blocking or reducing calcium entry into these cells, means inhibiting calcium effects, and thus causes the following reaction: Vasodilation – by acting on vascular smooth muscle, Calcium channel blockers reduces contraction of the arteries which causes an increase in arterial diameter. This drugs primarily affect arteries, with minimal effects on venous vessels. Calcium Channel Blockers also have a Negative Inotropic effect – by acting on cardiac muscle, Calcium channel blockers therefore can reduce the force of the contraction in the heart. Calcium channel blockers also have a Negative Chrono-tropic – effect – by slowing down the conduction of electrical activity within the heart, therefore Calcium channel blockers may affect the rate of the heartbeat. They also can exhibit a Negative Dromo-tropic effect – by slowing down the conduction of the electrical activity of the heart, thus the conduction of velocity also decreases, particularly at the atrioventricular node. Which can ultimately slow the heart rate. Therapeutic Use Calcium Channel Blockers are used to control a variety of medical condition such as high blood pressure, chest pain, and tachyarrhythmia. As anti-hypertensive drug – The effects of calcium in the heart muscles, is that it causes the muscle to act aggressively, by contracting more forcefully. Calcium also stimulates vascular smooth muscle contraction resulting in narrow blood vessels. This series of events many times can result in high blood pressure. By preventing the entry of calcium into the heart muscle and vascular smooth muscles (particularly in the arteries), the heart muscle contraction will not be too strong and arterial vessels are able to relax and dilate, leading to lower blood pressure. As anti-anginal drug – The word angina is one that you will hear a lot as a nursing student and nurse. This is a fancy word for “chest pain.”

The Treatment Of High Blood Pressure II
 
02:15
As was discussed in a previous vignette, there are several types of blood pressure medications to lower high blood pressure. Diuretics, ACE inhibitors and beta blockers were all discussed. All have a role to play, and all attack high blood pressure at different places in the body’s process of maintaining blood pressure. Often, combinations must be used to control high blood pressure. This vignette will further discuss different types of medications that are available to control high blood pressure. The next kind of medicine to control high blood pressure is the calcium channel blockers. They are further divided into two different groups: one that opens up the arteries of that lowering the blood pressure inside such as nifedipine and amlodipine, and one that lowers the heart rate such as Verapamil or Diltiazem. These medications are not really considered first-line therapies, but at times they do have a role to play in lowering blood pressure. Verapamil and Diltiazem are also used in certain heart rhythms when the heart rhythm is too fast. The good news with these medications is that there is increasing evidence that they may reduce stroke and heart attacks. However, they do have side effects including headache and swelling in the legs, and of course there’s always a chance that the heart rate can be lowered too much, causing heart failure or just general fatigue. Angiotensin II receptor blockers (ARBs) are a new kind of blood pressure medicine that are being used more and more. They work in a similar way to the ACE inhibitors. They differ in that they do not cause a cough, and so many physicians use this type of medication when the ACE inhibitors cause a cough. This kind of medication includes Losartan, Olmesartan, Eprosartan, Telmisartan, Candesartan, Valsartan, and Irbesartan. It is now thought that they have similar effects on heart failure, kidney disease and heart attacks that ACE inhibitors have, although there are not as many studies done on ARBs as there are on the ACE inhibitors. On a more personal note, I very rarely use these medications because of their high costs and to me personally, they just don’t seem very strong in actually reducing high blood pressure. There are several other classes of medication that are used less frequently. For instance, in very high blood pressures, some doctors use a medication called hydralazine that helps open the arteries up a bit allowing the pressure inside the artery to decrease. This medication is used three times a day, and often causes lots of swelling in the legs. Furthermore, not everyone responds to it. There is also a class of high blood pressure medicines called alpha blockers, such as doxazosin, that actually increase the risk of stroke and heart failure when used. Finally, there probably needs to be a special word given to the medication called clonidine. Clonidine or Catapress is available as a pill or a patch. It’s considered a pretty strong medication, and is one that used a lot when blood pressures are very high, especially if we think somebody is at or near a stroke or kidney failure. It is not used very often long-term because of its two main side effects: it’s very sedating, and it gives a very dry mouth. Both of these symptoms get a little better over time, but for most people they never completely get used to them, either. As one can see, there are a lot of choices out there for high blood pressure, and this vignette just scratches the surface. If you have high blood pressure, please consult your physician as to what to do, but we hope that the information above gives you a little bit more information as to how we approach and treat high blood pressure.

Potassium channel blockers

Potassium Channel Blockers are easy! Check it out! I work hard to make and find the best videos for you to study from (it’s not easy)! You can help by suggesting any good videos you've seen in the comments below! Good luck in school!! Hey, guys. This is Dr. Joel with MedImmersion. You are watching a flash flood review series video where I review the highest yield stuff for your board exams in as little time as possible. In this video, I'm going to be talking about the potassium channel blockers, which are a class of the antiarrhythmic agents. I'll cover some general principles about the class as a whole, and then a few specific drugs in that category, or in this class. It's gonna be awesome, so stick around. If you watch a lot of MedImmersion videos, and they're helpful for you, think about getting an account at medimmersion.com. That will speed you up in your studying because when you're logged into MedImmersion on your browser and use the links in these videos, you will automatically skip past these lengthy introductions on my MedImmersion videos and also on other people's videos that I've linked to. And you'll be able to skip over a lot of the YouTube advertisements on my MedImmersion videos. Okay. Let's jump into it. This lecture is going to cover a subset of the antiarrhythmics, the potassium channel blockers. I'll give you an introduction as to what they are. Then, talk about some general principles that will include the mechanism of action, clinical uses, adverse or side effects, and then I will cover a couple of the highest yield examples in this class. Alright. First of all, if you need to review the entire topic of the antiarrhythmics, with a little bit of cardiac physiology, you should really go over and watch The Antiarrhythmic Agents Lecture first. This lecture, right now, is a little bit more focused, and I assume that you know a couple of things about antiarrhythmics. So, the potassium channel blockers, in the Vaughn Williams Antiarrhythmic Agent Classification, are the Class III antiarrhythmics. You should know that. And we use the potassium channel blockers and the Class I, or sodium channel blockers, for rhythm control. The Class IIs and Class IVs are more rate control. Four drugs that we're gonna talk about amiodarone, ibutilide, dofetilide, and sotalol, which you can remember by the mnemonic AIDS. As for the mechanism of action, these block myocardial potassium channels, and that has its primary effect on the specific potassium channels that are responsible for the delayed rectifier current, which have a very important contribution on the length of the action potential, and thus, the effective refractory period of cardiac myocytes. And to explain that a little bit further. Have you ever wondered why exactly the action potential of a neuron through the spinal cord or a peripheral neuron looks different than the action potential in myocardium. Well, it's built that way on purpose. The plateau phase, or the prolongation of the action potential, or the refractory period, gives cardiac tissue special properties that prevent it or contribute to prevention of arrhythmias. So, the picture on the left is what maybe a bland neuron action potential might look like in the peripheral nervous system. On the right, we have a cardiac action potential. And both of these are pretty bland images. They're not exactly right. But the point here is that there's a plateau where the cell stays in its non-polarized state for a little bit longer, for a period of time. Potassium plays a big part in that. The initial depolarization is caused by a rapid influx of sodium. And then, it's maintained in that depolarized state by both calcium and potassium trading places across the cell membrane in relatively small amounts. In phase three, which is the repolarization phase, finally there's a delayed switch, or a delayed rectifier current of potassium, which finally turns on and allows an efflux of positive ions, allowing the membrane potential to come back down to a very negative number. So, hopefully you can see why if we mess around with the potassium channels that contribute to phase three, we prolong or at least change the shape of the cardiac action potential, which, of course, would have an effect on some kinds of arrhythmias. So, it was pretty easy to see, I think, from that previous picture that delaying the potassium efflux during the repolarization phases increases or stretches out the action potential duration and also the effective refractory period. Also, these do not have any effect on the sodium channels, meaning that the conduction velocity, or phase zero, wouldn't be affected or decreased. And visually, it looks like this, the action potential stretched out and the effective refractory period is increased. Also, that means that the QT interval is prolonged. Okay. Does that make sense? We use the Class III antiarrhythmic agents for rhythm control.

Cilnidipine - A Better Alternative to Amlodipine

Cilnidipine - A Better Alternative to Amlodipine. Cilnidipine is effective as a once-daily antihypertensive. Both amlodipine and cilnidipine have shown equal efficacy in reducing blood pressure in hypertensive individuals. Moreover, cilnidipine is associated with less incidences of pedal edema. Thus, cilnidipine is a better, well-tolerated and acceptable alternative antihypertensive in patients with amlodipine-induced edema.

What is CARDIOVERSION? What does CARDIOVERSION mean? CARDIOVERSION meaning - CARDIOVERSION pronunciation - CARDIOVERSION definition - CARDIOVERSION explanation - How to pronounce CARDIOVERSION? Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. Cardioversion is a medical procedure by which an abnormally fast heart rate (tachycardia) or other cardiac arrhythmia is converted to a normal rhythm using electricity or drugs. Synchronized electrical cardioversion uses a therapeutic dose of electric current to the heart at a specific moment in the cardiac cycle, restoring the activity of the electrical conduction system of the heart. (Defibrillation uses a therapeutic dose of electric current to the heart at a random moment in the cardiac cycle, and is the most effective resuscitation measure for cardiac arrest associated with ventricular fibrillation and pulseless ventricular tachycardia.) Pharmacologic cardioversion, also called chemical cardioversion, uses antiarrhythmia medication instead of an electrical shock. To perform synchronized electrical cardioversion, two electrode pads are used (or, alternatively, the traditional hand-held "paddles"), each comprising a metallic plate which is faced with a saline based conductive gel. The pads are placed on the chest of the patient, or one is placed on the chest and one on the back. These are connected by cables to a machine which has the combined functions of an ECG display screen and the electrical function of a defibrillator. A synchronizing function (either manually operated or automatic) allows the cardioverter to deliver a reversion shock, by way of the pads, of a selected amount of electric current over a predefined number of milliseconds at the optimal moment in the cardiac cycle which corresponds to the R wave of the QRS complex on the ECG. Timing the shock to the R wave prevents the delivery of the shock during the vulnerable period (or relative refractory period) of the cardiac cycle, which could induce ventricular fibrillation. If the patient is conscious, various drugs are often used to help sedate the patient and make the procedure more tolerable. However, if the patient is hemodynamically unstable or unconscious, the shock is given immediately upon confirmation of the arrhythmia. When synchronized electrical cardioversion is performed as an elective procedure, the shocks can be performed in conjunction with drug therapy until sinus rhythm is attained. After the procedure, the patient is monitored to ensure stability of the sinus rhythm. Synchronized electrical cardioversion is used to treat hemodynamically unstable supraventricular (or narrow complex) tachycardias, including atrial fibrillation and atrial flutter. It is also used in the emergent treatment of wide complex tachycardias, including ventricular tachycardia, when a pulse is present. Pulseless ventricular tachycardia and ventricular fibrillation are treated with unsynchronized shocks referred to as defibrillation. Electrical therapy is inappropriate for sinus tachycardia, which should always be a part of the differential diagnosis. Various antiarrhythmic agents can be used to return the heart to normal sinus rhythm. Pharmacological cardioversion is an especially good option in patients with fibrillation of recent onset. Drugs that are effective at maintaining normal rhythm after electric cardioversion, can also be used for pharmacological cardioversion. Drugs like amiodarone, diltiazem, verapamil and metoprolol are frequently given before cardioversion to decrease the heart rate, stabilize the patient and increase the chance that cardioversion is successful. There are various classes of agents that are most effective for pharmacological cardioversion.

Forskolin
 
01:23
Medications for high blood pressure (Calcium channel blockers) interacts with FORSKOLIN Forskolin might decrease blood pressure. Taking forskolin with medication for high blood pressure might cause your blood pressure to go too low. Some medications for high blood pressure include nifedipine (Adalat, Procardia), verapamil (Calan, Isoptin, Verelan), diltiazem (Cardizem), isradipine (DynaCirc), felodipine (Plendil), amlodipine (Norvasc), and others. Medications that increase blood flow to the heart (Nitrates) interacts with FORSKOLIN Forskolin increases blood flow. Taking forskolin with medications that increase blood flow to the heart might increase the chance of dizziness and lightheadedness. Some of these medications that increase blood flow to the heart include nitroglycerin (Nitro-Bid, Nitro-Dur, Nitrostat) and isosorbide (Imdur, Isordil, Sorbitrate). http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4WI5I6a1E3c http://www.youtube.com/user/MultiHerbalHealth

William Catterall (U. Washington) Part 3: Voltage-gated Calcium Channels
 
35:54
https://www.ibiology.org/neuroscience/sodium-channels/#part-3 Lecture Overview: How does a baseball player react quickly enough to hit a 90 mph fastball or a tennis player to hit a 60 mph serve? All of the fast events in our bodies, such as vision, hearing, nerve conduction and muscle contraction, involve electrical signals. In Part 1 of his talk, Dr. Catterall explains how the flow of sodium and potassium ions, through specific channels in the cell membrane, creates an electrical signal in nerve and muscle cells. He describes the structure and function of the sodium channel and its important role in physiology and pharmacology. In Part 2 of his talk, Catterall describes how voltage gated sodium channels function at an atomic level. Bacterial Na+ channels in the NaChBac family contain many of the elements of mammalian Na+ channels but in a much simpler form. Using X-ray crystallography to study NaChBac proteins, Catterall and his colleagues determined which domains of sodium channels are responsible for sensing voltage differences across the cell membrane and how these domains trigger the opening of the channel pore. It was also possible to identify the structural changes leading to the slow inactivation of channels after multiple rounds of opening and closing and to understand how NaChBac establishes its specificity for Na+ ions. In his third talk, Catterall switches his focus to voltage gated calcium channels. Na+ and Ca2+ channels share a common ancestor and consequently, much of the overall structure of the voltage sensing domain and the central pore is conserved. In spite of this homology, the calcium channel selects specifically for Ca2+ ions, even in the presence of an excess of Na+. Upon entry into the cell, Ca2+ ions regulate numerous intracellular processes. Catterall explains how his group was able to engineer a bacterial calcium channel that allowed them to identify the residues required for Ca2+ selectivity. He also describes experiments demonstrating that Ca2+ ions act locally within the cell, allowing for targeted regulation of cellular functions such as learning and memory in the brain and contraction in skeletal and cardiac muscle. Speaker Bio: Bill Catterall is Professor and Chair of the Department of Pharmacology at the University of Washington where he has been a faculty member since 1977. Catterall received his BA in Chemistry from Brown University and his PhD in Physiological Chemistry from Johns Hopkins University. He was a post-doctoral fellow with Dr. Marshall Nirenberg and a staff scientist at the NIH for a few years before moving to the University of Washington. Catterall and his colleagues discovered the voltage-gated sodium and calcium channels responsible for generating the electrical impulses necessary for most physiological functions. His lab continues to study the structure and function of these channels, their physiological regulation, and their interaction with medically important drugs. Catterall is also interested in understanding how impaired channel function may lead to human disease. Catterall has been recognized with numerous awards and honors for his contributions to the fields of electrophysiology, pharmacology, neuroscience, and cell biology. These include receiving The Bristol-Myers Squibb Award for Distinguished Research in neuroscience in 2003, The Gairdner International Award of Canada in 2010, election to the U.S. National Academy of Sciences in 1989, the Institute of Medicine and the American Academy of Arts and Sciences in 2000, and as a Foreign Member of the Royal Society of London in 2008.

Creams For Peyronie's Disease
 
01:17
In this video we'll go over five well-known creams that are frequently used to treat Peyronie's Disease. Of course, it's hard to recommend one as the best cream for Peyronie's Disease as people respond differently to different types of treatments and substances. Thus we'll mention them in a random order. First we'll go over Topical verapamil HCl, which seems to be used most commonly to treat with Peyronie's Disease. With a study reporting notable plaque reduction through a period of 3 to 9 months. We'll then proceed to SR Cream, a natural alternative combining seven herbs and two natural oils, showing some great promise. With reviewers reporting notable Peyronie's Disease improvement in 3 months or even less. We'll then proceed to H-100, a compound that combines two plaque modifying ingredients and an effective carrier agent. With a study showing it to be effective in improving flaccid-stretched penile length, curvature and pain. At this point we will mention two alternatives that are not specifically designed, nor reported to have improved Peyronie's Disease but could potentially be used to improve it. The first one would be the Compounded Scar Cream, designed to treat general scarring disorders and containing ingredients that have been shown as effective with Peyronie's Disease. The second one would be Man1 Man Oil, a well known penile health promoting cream, containing nine ingredients for improved penile health.

Cardizem Video
 
14:59
We were faced with the following challenge. Cardizem was added as an optional medication for the region. We opted to use it because of its apparent benefits over Lopressor and the fact that it can be used standing order. The issue is that the only cost effective preparation requires some specific education regarding its use. We felt that there needed to be training beyond what was covered in the CNYEMS rollout before we put this medication on the rigs. We did not have time to put everyone through face-to-face training so we are trying this different approach. We made a video. A bunch of us (who would probably have preferred to remain anonymous if you didn't already know who we are) made the above video. Rescue 911, for those of you who don't recall, was one of the original "reality" TV shows that began its original run in 1989. It is known for being hosted by William Shatner and including rather melodramatic clips of personal interviews during the recreation of each incident. The first part of the video is modeled after the show. Following this are director's comments reminiscent of a late night infomercial. We even have an appearance by our own Air-1 pilot, Sergeant "Lieutenant" Jim. Finally, I would like your feedback. We are implementing training ideas on a trial and error basis (a highly heuristic method, if you will). So far we have received excellent feedback on the rig check reviews. Feedback is imperative to make sure that we provide you with material that is worthwhile and meeting your needs. Special thanks goes out to everyone who participated. I'd especially like to recognize folks behind the scenes including Dan who spent a bunch of time shooting footage, editing and adding effects and my partner in training (and cinematic producer / director) Susie. Thank you. --Dr. Fullagar WAVES Member Specific Information: The first portion of the video contains a number of answers, if you pay close attention, to the quiz you were e-mailed. The second portion has somewhat more direct answers to questions with a demonstration on how to mix and draw up the diltiazem properly.

Learn the Top Meds on NCLEX RN exam http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00EMLFF0S/ref=rdr_kindle_ext_tmb Get NCLEX and Nursing tips @ https://www.facebook.com/nclex.preceptor and http://www.pinterest.com/nclexp/ Author is Registered Nurse Jonathan Small Drug information provided by: Micromedex US Brand Name Norvasc Descriptions Amlodipine is used alone or together with other medicines to treat angina (chest pain) and high blood pressure (hypertension). High blood pressure adds to the workload of the heart and arteries. If it continues for a long time, the heart and arteries may not function properly. This can damage the blood vessels of the brain, heart, and kidneys, resulting in a stroke, heart failure, or kidney failure. High blood pressure may also increase the risk of heart attacks. These problems may be less likely to occur if blood pressure is controlled. Amlodipine is a calcium channel blocker. It affects the movement of calcium into the cells of the heart and blood vessels. As a result, amlodipine relaxes blood vessels and increases the supply of blood and oxygen to the heart while reducing its workload. This medicine is available only with your doctor's prescription. This product is available in the following dosage forms: Tablet Tablet, Disintegrating In deciding to use a medicine, the risks of taking the medicine must be weighed against the good it will do. This is a decision you and your doctor will make. For this medicine, the following should be considered: Allergies Tell your doctor if you have ever had any unusual or allergic reaction to this medicine or any other medicines. Also tell your health care professional if you have any other types of allergies, such as to foods, dyes, preservatives, or animals. For non-prescription products, read the label or package ingredients carefully. Pediatric Appropriate studies have not been performed on the relationship of age to the effects of amlodipine to treat high blood pressure in children younger than 6 years of age. Safety and efficacy have not been established. Geriatric Appropriate studies performed to date have not demonstrated geriatric-specific problems that would limit the usefulness of amlodipine in the elderly. However, elderly patients are more likely to have age-related kidney, liver, or heart problems, which may require caution and an adjustment in the dose for patients receiving amlodipine. Precautions Drug information provided by: Micromedex It is very important that your doctor check your progress at regular visits to make sure this medicine is working properly. Blood tests may be needed to check for unwanted effects. a Dizziness, lightheadedness, or fainting may also occur if you exercise or if the weather is hot. Heavy sweating can cause loss of too much water and result in low blood pressure. Use extra care during exercise or hot weather. If you have been using this medicine regularly for several weeks, do not suddenly stop using it. Stopping suddenly may cause your chest pain or high blood pressure to come back or get worse. Check with your doctor for the best way to reduce gradually the amount you are taking before stopping completely. Chest pain resulting from exercise or physical exertion is usually reduced or prevented by this medicine. This may tempt you to be too active. Make sure you discuss with your doctor a safe amount of exercise for your medical problem. After taking a dose of this medicine you may get a headache that lasts for a short time. This should become less noticeable after you have taken this medicine for a while. If this effect continues, or if the headaches are severe, check with your doctor. In some patients, tenderness, swelling, or bleeding of the gums may appear soon after treatment with this medicine is started. Brushing and flossing your teeth carefully and regularly and massaging your gums may help prevent this. See your dentist regularly to have your teeth cleaned. Check with your doctor or dentist if you have any questions about how to take care of your teeth and gums, or if you notice any tenderness, swelling, or bleeding of your gums. Do not take other medicines unless they have been discussed with your doctor. This especially includes over-the-counter (nonprescription) medicines for appetite control, asthma, colds, cough, hay fever, or sinus problems, since they may increase your blood pressure.

Cluster Headaches-25 Years Of Dealing With Cluster Headaches
 
13:49
My cluster headache journey is filled with wisdom about how to cope with these debilitating headaches. I started getting attacks when I was about twenty five years old. I was treated for sinus infections on about six different occasions through the years until a brilliant physician, Dr. Choy, in Sarasota, Florida diagnosed me correctly with cluster headaches. Here's the outline of the video structure: 1. I share what the warning signs are for me that a cluster attack is about to begin. I also go through the details of how the headache progresses to the point of being unbearable. 2. I offer some ways of reducing the pain while I am waiting for the oral imitrex (sumatriptan) to start working. 3. I tell the story of how I was treated for sinus infections, misdiagnosed and then finally diagnosed correctly as having cluster headaches. 4. I share an experience I recently had with two awful medications the doctor prescribed to try and stop the cluster headaches that a neurologist (headache specialist) said should not have been prescribed. 5. I reveal the medications that stop the pain quiclky. I give an excellent report about the use of oxygen to stop cluster headache pain. I also share what the two medicines the doctor has me on now that are helping put more distance between the headache attacks. 6. I've included three small quotes found on the Internet of people describing what it is like having a cluster headache. I met with a neurologist for the first time just the other day. I left his office, lifted my hands to the sky and said; "finally someone who really understands". He's been treating headaches for over twenty years and has many cluster headache patients. During my doctor visit with him, when he finished asking me all of the initial questions, he then said, "you are the classic cluster headache guy". I think what he meant by that is I'd suffered many years through being diagnosed with sinus infectious (sinusitis) and then finally a right diagnosis was made. Also, all of my headache symptoms are identical to men who suffer with clusters. So here's what is working for me now during a present cluster attack I am going through: A. I am inhaling oxygen to stop the pain and it is working. I am not taking any sumatriptan unless I am away from the oxygen when an attack starts. B. I am taking lithium carbonate and verapamil to aid in stopping the headaches altogether.
