How does adenosine (adenocard) work?

How does adenosine (adenocard) work?

Adenosine: Adenosine works thro' Adenosine receptors a1, causes depletion of camp, causing hyper polarization of the cell. Adenosine causes or induces atrioventricular block resulting in correcting rhythm abnormalities such as supra ventricular tachycardia. ...Read more

How to choose the best hospital and the best cardiac electrophysiologist in nyc for cardiac ablation is the procedure ever life threatening? I do get SVT 4-5 times a year and have to go to the hospital for an adenosine shot. Is this procedure life threat

How to choose the best hospital and the best cardiac electrophysiologist in nyc for cardiac ablation is the procedure ever life threatening? I do get SVT 4-5 times a year and have to go to the hospital for an adenosine shot. Is this procedure life threat

Hard. And no.: Svt is never fatal (with ultra-rare exceptions you almost certainly don't have) and is treated for symptoms. You're wise to look for someone good, but it isn't always easy to find the top folks. I can give you some names, but I won't do it in broad forum; to do so would be an insult to the many other excellent eps also in the area. Nyc is awash in excellent ep and you have several options. ...Read more

How will I feel with first starting on adenosine (adenocard)?

How will I feel with first starting on adenosine (adenocard)?

Single dose: Adenosine is given as a single dose that may be repeated once. It is extremely short acting but has side effects. You may feel short of breath, hot and flushed, nauseated, dizzy, get a headache, have chest pain, or feel like you're going to have diarrhea. The side effects all improve in about 1 minute and generally are gone in ...Read more

When will you use lidocaine versus adenosine?

When will you use lidocaine versus adenosine?

Cardiac arrhythmias?: I assume you're asking about cardiac arrhythmias? Lidocaine affects ventricular ectopy and has no effect on av conduction. It's was used for ventricular tachycardia and has largely been supplanted by amiodarone. Adenosine has no effect on the ventricles. It blocks av conduction. It's used to terminate supraventricular tachycardias. ...Read more

Atomoxetine and adenosine?

Atomoxetine and adenosine?

No interaction..: Not sure if this is what you meant to ask. But there is no known interaction between the two medicines. Also, the half-life (time it takes for half to disappear) of Adenosine is less than 10 seconds and thus not likely to cause much problem even if it does. Adenosine is usually given via IV push hoping to correct a specific heart arrythmia n it is gone in seconds/minutes. Ask again if u need to.. ...Read more

What is the sestamibi stress test with adenosine?

MPS: I believe you are referring to a myocardial perfusion scan, where technitium sestamibi 99 is the radioactive isotope that is injected intravenously so that images can can be taken of the heart at rest and 'stressed' or exercrsing -which brings us to the adenosine: a pharmacological agent used to 'stress' the heart instead of walking on a treadmill. Lexiscan is the stress agent of choice now. ...Read more

What hormone activate adenosine a2a receptor to widen the arteries and when is it released?

What hormone activate adenosine a2a receptor to widen the arteries and when is it released?

Local: Adenosine has a very short half life (only a few seconds). It is not in that sense a "circulating hormone". It's effects are mainly local and produced by cells, including heart muscle. It's production increases when there is need for increased circulation and blood flow to the heart, such as physical stress. ...Read more
