why is isoproterenol a beta agonist given to patient with ventricular tachycardia(torsades de pointes)?

hi guys i'm doing a case study where a patient has ventricular tachycardia (torsades de pointes) caused by quinidine toxicity....my question is why is isoproterenol a beta adrenegic agonist administered to patient?

is modern medicine a game of russian roulette. the drug digitalis which is used to slow the heart rate down?

in many tachycardia's can also cause junctional tachycardia.

also procainamide which is used to soothe an irritable ventricle during PREMATURE VENTRICULAR COMPLEXES and VENTRICULAR TACHYCARDIA can also cause torsades de pointes. its like the side effects of one drug can lead to a new form of what you were trying to prevent in the first place.

In a sense good health is all a balancing act. Hyperglycemia (very high blood sugar levels) is fatal, as is hypoglycemia (blood sugar that is too low). Too little water and you die of dehydration, too much and you drown. So, all modern medicine is trying to get you into balance without pushing you too far in the other direction - which is just one reason why it is so important to pay attention to proper dosing.  (+ info)

Funny how you have no problem having someone disfigure your child. Doesn't the kid deserve the right to decide if someone will punch holes in their head.

How to pan fry these red potatoes?

I chopped them down. Do I use butter/margrine/vegetable oil? How much. How long do I cook them for on what heat setting. Mom died, I do all the cooking now. Now many cooking pointes from her.

If you chopped the potatoes then place them in cold water which helps remove some of the starch. This way you won't have mushy potatoes. Pat dry. Over medium heat, I add 1 - 2 tablespoons of butter and 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Place potatoes in pan after butter has melted and season with salt and pepper. Cook 5 minutes, stir the potatoes and turn them in the pan. They will probably take a total of 20 - 25 minutes to cook and get browned. I like to add diced green onions during the final 5 minutes of cooking, nice flavor. Sometimes I season my potatoes with a little garlic powder as well.

Sorry about your Mom. For easy cooking ideas and detailed recipes, you can visit my site and I am specifically taking your to my home made hash brown recipe. Good luck to you.

Can you build ankle strength for pointe by wearing high heels?

becoz i want to get on pointes but i dont have very good ankle strength. and what other ways can u build ankle and core strength for ballet [besides sit ups and standing on my toes]?

I don't think the high heels would do it. Can you ask your instructor, or don't you want her to know?
Do some research. Use Google or Yahoo. Start with ballet, and hopefully you'll find your way to an answer.

Bless you and Good luck. :)  (+ info)
