Asthma Inhalers Effects On Blood Vessels
What are norepinephrine and epinephrine's effects on heart rate, blood pressure, vasoconstriction, sensitivity to pain, and heat production.
EPI: It increases heart rate and blood pressure (sometimes dangerously). It causes vasoconstriction. Variable effect on pain but generally increases sensitivity and because it ramps up your metabolism it increases heat production. Follow your docs instructions very carefully and don't freelance. ...Read more

Ventolin/blood sugar: Typically albuterol should not have any bearings in the blood sugar. It has been noted with large doses of IV albuterol can aggravate preexisting DM and acidosis. More commonly steroids wether systemic or inhaled has a more consistent effect on blood sugar. Need to have testing for possible underlying diabetes. ...Read more
How can advair and symbicort (budesonide and formoterol) increase the risk of asthma related death?
See below: Long acting beta agonists (labas) are not to be used for except in patients where their asthma has not been adequately controlled with an inhaled steroid. It increases the risk of death otherwise per reports. Why? There are many reasons which could include: mistaking using the med during an acute asthma attack, hypersensitivity to either of the drugs or milk products, cardiac arrhythmia, & other. ...Read more

I'm curious as to what effects will atherosclerosis and arteriosclerosis have on peripheral resistance, blood flow, and blood pressure?
Bad combination: Atherosclerosis/arteiosclerosis is a progressive disease of the arterial system that ultimately results in arterial wall hardening and luminal (phenobarbital) occlusion. Basically the artery stiffens and closes off. As the arteries get stiffer and more narrow from accumulating disease, blood flow through the the vessel decreases and peripheral resistance/pressure within the vessel inceases.It's a bad combination. ...Read more
PULMONARY PRESSURES: Hypertension can cause a myriad of problems ranging from systemic to isolated organ damage (eyes, kidneys). Pulmonary hypertension is "high pulmonary vascular pressures" typically due to a filling issue upon return to the heart (obstruction) or an intrinsic problem of the tissue of the lung itself (stiffness). High blood pressure can worsen pulmonary hypertension but it does not cause it, per se ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Pt. With severe COPD and is non - responsive to inhaled steroids. Has tried "most" of the inhaled albuterols, combivents, (albuterol and ipratropium) and anti-cholinergis. ?
I'm on Combivent, (albuterol and ipratropium) Albuterol inhaler PRN, Advair 500/50 & Singular. Is it a safe combo to be on long term? I have bad asthma and I'm prone to pneumonia
Yes...: This is a safe med combo for treatment of asthma. You should rinse your mouth and spit it out after every Advair dose to prevent thrush, a complication of inhaled steroids. If your asthma exacerbations decrease over time, it is possible that your meds can be reduced (under doctor's supervision) but this combo is safe long-term. Be sure to never smoke! ...Read more
I'm on dulera (formoterol and mometasone). Why do labas cause increased risk of death from asthma? Not sure if its worth taking.
See below: So the long acting drugs cause an increased risk of death because if they are occupying the beta receptors and then you start having trouble breathing - as in a asthma attack, the short active inhaler will not have any receptors to bind to, thus they won't work. With that said, I would still take them, just know that there could be problems. The LABAs work very well. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
