Focus on Drugs
Heart failure *** Increase BP
Decrease Renal Perfusion Decrease Renal Blood flow Increase Angiotensin II Na retention

Increase SNS activity Increase contractility &Heart Rate Increase Renin release

Volume Overload/Edema

NSAIDs &CVD-ADR Risk Factor

Patient factors : Heart, Renal Impair Drug factor : High dose ,Interval of Dosing ,Prolonged treatment ,PK/PD (long half life) CVD-ADR Risk : Naproxen < Diclofenac < Ibuprofen Na Retention Effect: Selective Cox-2 = Non-selective Cox-2 (bz effect from PGE2) Dose & Duration ADR

Viagra (Sidenafil) & CVD-ADR

(Inh.PDE5 Increase cGMP Decrease BP)

Sidenafil+ Nitrates (:ISDN SL ) > 24 hr. (Sidenafil half life =3-5 hrs, duration = 4-6+ hrs.)

Alpha blocker (in BPH)

Suggest : Selective -Alpha Blocker
(:Tamsulosin, Alsulosin)

QT interval Prolongation
Prolongation of Ventricular repolarization (cause arrhythmias,esp. torsades de pointes) Factors Affecting QTc Interval
Sex : women > men Age : elderly > young Electrolyte imbalance :Hypo K ,Hypo Mg Presence of CVD D/I Genetics Concomitant use of dugs prolonging QTc interval

Drugs causing QTc prolongation

Astemizole Terfenadine Cisapride Grepafloxacin Gatifloxacin Moxifloxacin Sparfloxacin Erythromycin Clarithromycin Amiodarone Procainamide Quinidine Sotalol TCA Antipsychotics

Mechanism of Drug-induced Arrhythmias

Blocking of Na channel Blocking of rectifier potassium channel (IKr) Result:QT prolongation early after depolarization + imhomogeneity of ventricular recovery Polymorphic ventricular tarchycardia Torsade de pointes

Not cases of QTc prolongation will develop Torsade Torsade case mostly occurred when QTc> 500 ms Symptoms of torsade :Dizziness, lightheadedness, palpitations, presyncope, syncope

Typical Antipsychotic vs QTc Prolongation

Low potency phenothiazines Chlorpromazine Thioridazine Mesoridazine High potency phenothiazines Perphenazine Fluphenazine Pimozide Butyrophenones Haloperidol Droperidol


Rare or Uncertain Worst Problematic Rare or Uncertain Rare or Uncertain Worst Rare or Uncertain Worst

Management of Drug-induced QTc prolongation

D/C culprit drugs immediately Control the Arrhythmia by increasing the heart rate. Electrolyte abnormalities should be corrected.

MgSO4 infusion may effectively terminate arrhythmia ,even in presence of normal Mg levels. Antiarrhythmic drugs may worsen the problem and should be avoided
