Mefenamic acid A Complete Guide on Taking Mefenamic Acid Mefenamic acid is a common medication used to treat various types of pain. It belongs to a group of drugs called non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), which is typically taken by mouth. It works by reducing your body's production of an inflammatory substance that causes fever, swelling and pain. Part 1: Precautions Before Taking Mefenamic Acid Although mefenamic acid is a medication that may be bought over-the-counter, there are some things to keep in mind before taking it, including: • Tell your doctor/pharmacist if you are allergic to mefenamic acid, aspirin or other NSAID such as ibuprofen or naproxen. It is also safe practice to inform your doctor about other allergies because
I chose the most common medications that are frequently used, those being ; Beta Blockers, ACE inhibitors, and Angiotensin receptor blockers. Beta blockers work by blocking the effects of adrenaline in the body which is also known as (hormone epinephrine). The beta blockers work by opening up the blood vessels to improve the blood flow. The most common symptoms that come with beta blockers are dizziness and dry mouth, skin, or eyes. As for ACE inhibitors they serve to primarily relax the blood vessels.
FA and ICGA showed the small radial drusen as areas of hyperfluorescence in the early phase that decreased during the late phase in both FA and ICGA. On the contrary, large drusen showed a hyperfluorescence, in the early phase that increased in the late phase of FA while on ICGA they were hypofluorescent in the early phases with a characteristic hyperfluorescent pattern in the late phases. No characteristic features of CNV were found on either FA or ICGA. (Fig. 7) SD-OCT showed diffuse deposition of hyperreflective material between the RPE and the Bruch’s membrane resulting in diffuse RPE elevation.
• Administration errors • Transcription errors • Failure to follow proper medical guidelines ( double checking the right drug, doses, routing, time and patient Epinephrine is a catecholamine that stimulates alpha (α) , beta 1 (β-1) and beta 2 (β-2)adrenergic effector dose dependent. Epinephrine influences its effects on the heart, vascular and other smooth muscles. It’s usually administrated for both anaphylaxis and myocardial infarction. Epinephrine is available in different concentrations and it is administered in a variable type of specific to each indication. Doses for Epinephrine Base on Indication: Indication Dose Administration Anaphylactic 0.3-0.5mg of 1:1,000 Intramuscular (IM) Anaphylactic 0.1mg of 1:10,000 IV push over 5 minutes shock Myocardial 1mg of 1:10,000 IV push Infarction concentration What could’ve been done by the medical team to prevent these errors?
1.0 Introduction Tritace is an Angiotensin-Converting-Enzyme (ACE) Inhibitor. It is used to treat hypertension, heart failure, stroke, myocardial infarction and diabetes. Its generic name is Ramipril. Other brand names include Altace, Cardace, Ramiril and Ramacor. Some examples of other ACE Inhibitors are Enalapril, Quinapril, Captopril and Lisinopril.
Abstract: Valproate (VPA) is a widely used anticonvulsant drugs; however, it represents a typical example of drug-induced adverse reactions especially liver injury. The polyunsaturated, omega-3 fatty acid, docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), prerogatives diverse cytoprotective effects, even though mechanism remains unclear. We have previously demonstrated a protective effect of DHA against VPA-induced hepatotoxicity. Therefore, this study was designed to investigate potential mechanisms of DHA in subsiding VPA-induced hepatotoxicity. To achieve this goal, three group of age matched male Sprague Dawley rats were used in the current study; control group, VPA-group received VPA alone (500 mg/kg orally ever day) and VPA+DHA group received VPA plus DHA

Respiratory depression has been reported to occur after single-use of remifentanil in a dose-related fashion above 0.2 µg/kg/min or with 0.1 µg /kg/min in combination with propofol (27). The use of remifentanil as a solo sedative agent has been investigated in an observational study by a team of French investigators (28) that has concluded that target-controlled infusion (TCI) with remifentanil is appropriate for conscious sedation, even in fragile patients or for long-duration procedures. They noted, however, that a risk for respiratory depression suggests that the approach be used only in a controlled environment with continuous monitoring. The trial included 91 patients, all of whom required conscious sedation with spontaneous ventilation. Each patient received a target-controlled infusion of remifentanil, with an initial target of 2 ng/mL and the target was increased if the patient complained of pain or was agitated.
The best characterized of these disorders include deficiencies of Antithrombin III, Protein C, Protein S, and Factor V Leiden mutation. The treatment for these disorders is heparin injections in the acute setting. Long term treatment consists of anticoagulation with warfarin for patients with Protein C, S, or Factor V Leiden deficiency. People who are homozygous for Protein C deficiency require periodic transfusions of blood plasma rather than oral warfarin
Vitamin C, E, A National Eye Institute study showed that taking high doses of the antioxidants vitamin C, vitamin E and beta-carotene, along with zinc, may slow AMD progression. The thyroid gland produces a number of essential hormones, including thyroxine (also called T4), that play a broad-but-vital role in metabolism, growth, and development, and body temperature. Zinc is an important cofactor in proper thyroid
Initial discovery of diminished ventricular function permits adjustments in the chemotherapy regimen, either by increasing the break amid doses or by reducing the total cumulative dose of a theoretically toxic agent. Myocardial strain imaging allows detection of subclinical left ventricular systolic dysfunction before it manifests as heart failure symptoms or a reduction in left ventricular ejection

Beta-3 receptors are located in the fat cells. When taking beta blockers they block B1 and B2 receptors therefore the effects of norepinephrine and epinephrine. By blocking these neurotransmitter effects, beta blockers reduce heart rate, decrease blood pressure, and help blood vessels open up to improve blood flow. (Ogbru & Mark, 2015) This class of medications are important because they the most commonly used medications for cardiovascular diseases. Some of the common diseases that beta blockers treat are angina, heart failure, high blood pressure, atrial fibrillation, and myocardial
Mr. Devi was complaining of severe headache with pain score of 10/10, strong pain relief medication prescribed for the pain management. Upon diagnosis of CVA on his CT scan, he was administered stat medication of intravenous anti-hypertensive agent Labetalol as prescribed. Labetalol is an anti- hypertensive medication used to lower severe hypertension both in acute ischaemic and haemorrhagic stroke. It is a selective alpha1 and non- selective beta1 and beta 2 blocking agent, with minimal intrinsic sympathomimetic activity. Because of its unique combination of actions, it contributes to lowering blood pressure via vasodilatation and a slowing of heart rate without affecting cardiac output, renal hemodynamic and cerebral blood flow (Harrington
