Common side effects: Mydriasis, dry mouth, tachycardia, urinary retention, confusion, drowsiness. • Relative contraindications: Glaucoma, urinary obstruction, heart Disease. CLINICAL CORRELATION Scopolamine, like other antimuscarinic agents, including the prototype atropine, is a selective competitive (surmountable) antagonist of ACh at muscarinic cholinoreceptors. Its actions can be overcome by increased concentrations of ACh or other muscarinic cholinoreceptor agonists. Scopolamine blocks muscarinic cholinoreceptors in the vestibular system and CNS to prevent motion sickness.
And areocoline). Indirectly acting muscarinic agents act primarily by inhibiting the metabolism of ACh, through blocking the acetylcholinesterase (AChE) enzyme, thereby increasing the availability of naturally occurring ACh in the synapse. AChE inhibitors commonly used in the treatment of autonomic pathologies include physiostigmine, neostigmine, pyridostigmine, and ambedonium. Directly and indirectly acting parasympathetic cholinomimetic agents, primarily pilocarpine and bethanechol, and neostigmine, are used most often therapeutically to treat certain diseases of the eye (acute angle-closure glaucoma), the urinary tract (urinary tract retention), the gastrointestinal tract (postoperative ileus), salivary glands (xerostomia), and the neuromuscular junction (myasthenia gravis).
Vasopressive agents are most commonly used in patients where fluid resuscitation is inadequate to restore blood pressure. Vasopressive agents are used in patients where aggressive fluid resuscitation is contraindicated, such as those with congestive heart failure, kidney failure, liver failure, or acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS); these patients risk development of pulmonary edema. Although previously, dopamine was frequently used to treat this condition. The β1-adrenoceptor-mediated effects in the heart result in an increase in cardiac output with minimal peripheral vasoconstriction.
