The importance of the bioassay of digitalis.
The most important are: Digoxin, digitoxin and ouabain PowerPoint Presentation: Excitability Small dose enhance cardiac excitability, large dose …. Automaticity large dose, increase ability to develop ectopic foci. Extrasystole Effect of digitalis on E. Effect on veins and venous pressure: Effect on coronary circulation: Toxic doses may produce coronary constriction PowerPoint Presentation: Heart failure not respond to diuretics Absolute Indications Chronic congestive heart failure associated with atrial fibrillation Atrial fibrillation Atrial flutter Paroxysmal atrial tachycardia Relative Indications PowerPoint Presentation: Therapeutic dose Fatal dose Fatal period 0.
Risk factors Decreased tolerance to the drug Hypokalemiahypernatremiahypomagnesemia Medications that interact with digitalis such as quinidine, verapamil, amiodarone, and others.
PHARMACOLOGY: Bioassay of digitalis
Reduced kidney function will cause digitalis to build up in the body rather than be removed normally through urine. Investigations ECG is done to check for irregular heart beats. Blood tests will be done to check: Mechanism of Action of digifab -DigiFab has an affinity for digoxin in the range of to M-1, which is greater than affinity of digoxin for its sodium pump receptor, the presumed receptor for its therapeutic and toxic effects.
Side effects of digifab: Side effects of digifab Exacerbation of low cardiac output states and congestive heart failure due to withdrawal of inotropic effect of digitalis. Hypokalemia due to reactivation of the sodium-potassium ATPase Rapid ventricular response in patients with atrial fibrillation due to withdrawal of effects of digitalis on the atrioventricular node.
Rare allergic reactions in Patients with a history of allergy, especially to antibiotics, appear to be at particular risk Calculation of Dose: Calculation of Dose In Digoxin. She was discharged from the hospital just 4 days ago. Digoxin was started during that previous hospitalization for control of tachycardia in atrial fibrillation. One day prior to discharge, digoxin level was 1. Past medical history PMH Hypertension, atrial oc, coronary artery disease, stroke, congestive heart failure.
Medications Metoprolol, digoxin, aspirinlisinopril, furosemide warfarinesomeprazole Physical examination In pain, combative and confused. Clear S1 and S2, irregularly irregular rhythm, HR bpm. What would you do? Sitter in the room.
The initial digoxin level was elevated at nearly twice the upper therapeutic level. All symptoms resolved as digoxin level decreased to therapeutic range. Heart rate was controlled by increasing metoprolol dose.
She was digita,is back to the nursing home in good condition.
