  1. 2. <ul><li>Nitrates </li></ul><ul><li>Beta blockers </li></ul><ul><li>Calcium channel blockers </li></ul>
  2. 3. <ul><li>When the supply of oxygen and nutrients in the blood is insufficient to meet the demands of the heart, the heart muscle aches . </li></ul><ul><li>The heart demands a large supply of oxygen to meet the demands placed on it. </li></ul>
  3. 4. <ul><li>Chronic stable angina (also called classic or effort angina) </li></ul><ul><li>Unstable angina (also called preinfarction or crescendo angina) </li></ul><ul><li>Vasospastic angina (also called Prinzmetal’s or variant angina) </li></ul>
  4. 6. <ul><li>Therapeutic Objectives </li></ul><ul><li>Increase blood flow to ischemic heart muscle </li></ul><ul><li>and/or </li></ul><ul><li>Decrease myocardial oxygen demand </li></ul>
  5. 7. <ul><li>Therapeutic Objectives </li></ul><ul><li>Minimize the frequency of attacks and decrease the duration and intensity of anginal pain </li></ul><ul><li>Improve the patient’s functional capacity with as few side effects as possible </li></ul><ul><li>Prevent or delay the worst possible outcome, MI </li></ul>
  6. 8. <ul><li>Available forms: </li></ul><ul><li>Sublingual Ointments </li></ul><ul><li>Buccal Transdermal patches </li></ul><ul><li>Chewable tablets Inhalable sprays </li></ul><ul><li>Capsules Intravenous solutions </li></ul>
  7. 9. <ul><li>Cause vasodilation due to relaxation of smooth muscles </li></ul><ul><li>Potent dilating effect on coronary arteries </li></ul><ul><li>Used for prophylaxis and treatment of angina </li></ul>
  8. 10. <ul><li>Nitroglycerin </li></ul><ul><li>Prototypical nitrate </li></ul><ul><li>Large first-pass effect with PO forms </li></ul><ul><li>Used for symptomatic treatment of ischemic heart conditions (angina) </li></ul><ul><li>IV form used for BP control in perioperative hypertension, treatment of CHF, ischemic pain, and pulmonary edema associated with acute MI </li></ul>
  9. 11. <ul><li>isosorbide dinitrate (Isordil, Sorbitrate, Dilatrate SR) </li></ul><ul><li>isosorbide mononitrate (Imdur, Monoket, ISMO) </li></ul><ul><li>Used for: </li></ul><ul><li>Acute relief of angina </li></ul><ul><li>Prophylaxis in situations that may provoke angina </li></ul><ul><li>Long-term prophylaxis of angina </li></ul>
  10. 12. <ul><li>Side Effects </li></ul><ul><li>Headache </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Usually diminish in intensity and frequency with continued use </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Tachycardia, postural hypotension </li></ul><ul><li>Tolerance may develop </li></ul>
  11. 13. <ul><li>atenolol (Tenormin) </li></ul><ul><li>metoprolol (Lopressor) </li></ul><ul><li>propranolol (Inderal) </li></ul><ul><li>nadolol (Corgard) </li></ul>
  12. 14. <ul><li>Mechanism of Action </li></ul><ul><li>Decrease the HR, resulting in decreased myocardial oxygen demand and increased oxygen delivery to the heart </li></ul><ul><li>Decrease myocardial contractility, helping to conserve energy or decrease demand </li></ul>
  13. 15. <ul><li>Therapeutic Uses </li></ul><ul><li>Antianginal </li></ul><ul><li>Antihypertensive </li></ul><ul><li>Cardioprotective effects, especially after MI </li></ul>
  14. 16. <ul><li>Side Effects </li></ul><ul><li>Body System Effects </li></ul><ul><li>Cardiovascular bradycardia, hypotension second- or third-degree heart block heart failure </li></ul><ul><li>Metabolic Altered glucose and lipid metabolism </li></ul>
  15. 17. <ul><li>Side Effects </li></ul><ul><li>Body System Effects </li></ul><ul><li>CNS dizziness, fatigue, mental depression, lethargy, drowsiness, unusual dreams </li></ul><ul><li>Other impotence wheezing, dyspnea </li></ul>
  16. 18. <ul><li>verapamil (Calan) </li></ul><ul><li>diltiazem (Cardizem) </li></ul><ul><li>nifedipine (Procardia) </li></ul>
  17. 19. <ul><li>Mechanism of Action </li></ul><ul><li>Cause peripheral arterial vasodilation </li></ul><ul><li>Reduce myocardial contractility (negative inotropic action) </li></ul><ul><li>Result: decreased myocardial oxygen demand </li></ul>
  18. 20. <ul><li>Therapeutic Uses </li></ul><ul><li>First-line agents for treatment of angina, hypertension, and supraventricular tachycardia </li></ul><ul><li>Short-term management of atrial fibrillation and flutter </li></ul><ul><li>Several other uses </li></ul>
  19. 21. <ul><li>Side Effects </li></ul><ul><li>Very acceptable side effect and safety profile </li></ul><ul><li>May cause hypotension, palpitations, tachycardia or bradycardia, constipation, nausea, dyspnea </li></ul>
  20. 22. <ul><li>Before administering, perform a complete health history to determine presence of conditions that may be contraindications for use or call for cautious use. </li></ul><ul><li>Obtain baseline VS, including respiratory patterns and rate. </li></ul><ul><li>Assess for drug interactions. </li></ul>
  21. 23. <ul><li>Patients should not take any medications, including OTC medications, without checking with the physician. </li></ul><ul><li>Patients should report blurred vision, persistent headache, dry mouth, dizziness, edema, fainting episodes, weight gain of 2 pounds in 1 day or 5 or more pounds in 1 week, pulse rates under 60, and any dyspnea. </li></ul>
  22. 24. <ul><li>Alcohol consumption and hot baths or spending time in jacuzzis, hot tubs, or saunas will result in vasodilation, hypotension, and the possibility of fainting. </li></ul><ul><li>Teach patients to change positions slowly to avoid postural BP changes. </li></ul><ul><li>Encourage patients to keep a record of their anginal attacks, including precipitating factors, number of pills taken, and therapeutic effects. </li></ul>
  23. 25. <ul><li>Nursing Implications </li></ul><ul><li>Instruct patients in proper technique and guidelines for taking sublingual NTG for anginal pain. </li></ul><ul><li>Instruct patients never to chew or swallow the SL form. </li></ul><ul><li>Instruct patients that a burning sensation felt with SL forms indicates that the drug is still potent. </li></ul>
  24. 26. <ul><li>Nursing Implications </li></ul><ul><li>Instruct patients to keep a fresh supply of NTG on hand; potency is lost in about 3 months after the bottle has been opened. </li></ul><ul><li>Medications should be stored in an airtight, dark glass bottle with a metal cap and no cotton filler to preserve potency. </li></ul>
  25. 27. <ul><li>Nursing Implications </li></ul><ul><li>Instruct patients in the proper application of nitrate topical ointments and transdermal forms, including site rotation and removal of old medication. </li></ul><ul><li>To reduce tolerance, the patient may be instructed to remove topical forms at bedtime, and apply new doses in the morning, allowing for a nitrate-free period. </li></ul>
  26. 28. <ul><li>Nursing Implications </li></ul><ul><li>Instruct patients to take prn nitrates at the first hint of anginal pain. </li></ul><ul><li>If experiencing chest pain, the patient taking SL NTG should be lying down to prevent or decrease dizziness and fainting that may occur due to hypotension. </li></ul><ul><li>Monitor VS frequently during acute exacerbations of angina and during IV administration. </li></ul>
  27. 29. <ul><li>Nursing Implications </li></ul><ul><li>IV forms of NTG must be contained in glass IV bottles and must be given with infusion pumps. </li></ul><ul><li>Discard parenteral solution that is blue, green, or dark red. </li></ul><ul><li>Follow specific manufacturer’s instructions for IV administration. Use special IV tubing provided or non-PVC tubing. </li></ul>
  28. 30. <ul><li>Nursing Implications </li></ul><ul><li>Blood levels should be monitored to ensure they are therapeutic. </li></ul><ul><li>Oral CCBs should be taken before meals and as ordered. </li></ul><ul><li>Patients should be encouraged to limit caffeine intake. </li></ul>
  29. 31. <ul><li>Nursing Implications </li></ul><ul><li>Patients taking beta blockers should monitor pulse rate daily and report any rate lower than 60 beats per minute. </li></ul><ul><li>Dizziness or fainting should also be reported. </li></ul><ul><li>Constipation is a common problem. Instruct patients to take in adequate fluids and eat high-fiber foods. </li></ul>
  30. 32. <ul><li>Nursing Implications </li></ul><ul><li>These medications should never be abruptly discontinued due to risk of rebound hypertensive crisis. </li></ul><ul><li>Inform patients that these medications are for long-term prevention of angina, not for immediate relief. </li></ul>
  31. 33. <ul><li>Monitor for adverse reactions </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Allergic reactions, headache, light-headedness, hypotension, dizziness </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Monitor for therapeutic effects </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Relief of angina, decreased BP, or both </li></ul></ul>
