Calculating flow rates?
Daddyrx, you're a frikken genius!! This math gives me a headache. Thanks a bunch! Asked by Nery Fetz 2 years ago.

1) A drug is ordered 150 mg/m^2 in 250 mL NS to infuse over 2 hours. The drug label on the vial reads 10 mg/mL. The BSA is 1.33 m^2. What is the flow rate in mL/h? #2) An infusion of 384 milliliters of lactated Ringer’s solution is infusing at a rate of 20 drops per minute. If the drop factor is 15 drops per milliliter, how long will the infusion take? #3) The prescriber has ordered 250 milliliters of 5% D/W with 250 milligrams of esmolol hydrochloride (Brevibloc) at a rate of 0.01 milligrams/kilogram/minute IV. What will the flow rate be in milliliters per hour if the patient weighs 75 kilograms? #4)A patient is to receive 0.25 mg of morphine sulfate per minute. The infusion has 500 mL with 250 mg morphine.

Blood Pressure - Inderal LA (Propranolol generic) and Cozaar good combination?
I take Inderal long acting 80 mg 1 time per day. My BP still runs a little high. My cardiologist prescribed Cozaar 50 mg in addition. Just wondering if anyone taking Inderal or propranolol (generic for Inderal) has taken this combo and how they did? Any side effects? Asked by Gustavo Yarosh 2 years ago.

-- Not all blood-pressure drugs are alike. An exciting new study shows that Cozaar reduces the risk of stroke, heart attack, and death in seriously ill heart patients. And that's not all: the drug also cuts the risk of diabetes in heart patients. For heart patients who already have diabetes, the drug lowers the risk of death. Treatment with Cozaar reduced the risk of death from stroke by one-fourth Studies found that patients with coronary artery disease might benefit from taking both Cozaar and a beta-blocker. The combination of Cozaar and a beta-blocker has been tested and results are promising. Cozaar is a type of drug known as an angiotensin receptor blocker or ARB. It is expected to show the same superiority to other beta-blockers -- Betapace, Blocadren, Brevibloc, Corgard, Inderal, Sectral, Toprol, and Zebeta. It's not yet known whether other ARBs -- Atacand, Avapro, Diovan, Micardis, and Teveten -- will work as well. However, an editorial in TheLancet suggests that it is reasonable to expect that they. Most of the side effects from Inderal is insomnia and erectile dysfunction. Answered by Anissa Kutil 2 years ago.

True/False: Beta blockers are contraindicated for use in patients after they experience a heart attack.?
Asked by Roselle Villamar 2 years ago.

False! Heart Disease and Beta-Blocker Therapy Beta-blockers are one of the most widely prescribed class of drugs to treat hypertension (high blood pressure) and are a mainstay treatment of congestive heart failure. Beta-blockers slow the heart's rate, thereby decreasing the heart’s demand for oxygen. Long-term use of beta-blockers helps manage chronic heart failure. Examples of beta-blockers include: - Sectral (acebutolol) - Zebeta (bisoprolol) - Brevibloc (esmolol) - Inderal (propranolol) - Tenormin (atenolol) - Normodyne, Trandate (labetalol) - Coreg (carvedilol) - Lopressor, Toprol-XL (metoprolol) Beta-blockers are often prescribed for these heart conditions: - Heart failure - High blood pressure - Angina - Abnormal heart rhythms - Heart attack Answered by Lyle Hayman 2 years ago.

Heart always tries to adapt to body demands, so when the heart starts to work harder - beats faster, more forceful contraction, which is in case of low oxygen or blood supply to the heart. The overload puts stress on cardiag muscle and after long period causes heart attack. So beta blockers decrease heart rate and contraction, and helps to prevent heart failure. Answered by Vincenza Haley 2 years ago.

False. Beta blockers are also used to control high blood pressure. Answered by Trina Donawa 2 years ago.

False, they may help prevent a second attack. Answered by Ebony Dickus 2 years ago.
