    Learn how commonly prescribed drugs produce their positive effects during immediate treatment for a hypertensive emergency and during continuing therapy for hypertension. See exactly what each drug's actions mean to your nursing care before, during, and after drug therapy.

    With this DVD, you'll learn:

    • how the vasodilator sodium nitroprusside works quickly to lower blood pressure during a hypertensive emergency
    • how peripheral vascular resistance and cardiac output control blood pressure, and how different antihypertensive drugs affect those forces to reduce hypertension
    • how beta blockers, diuretics, angiotensin-receptor blockers, central-acting drugs, and many other drugs are used in long-term, individualized treatment for hypertension
    • how to spot adverse drug reactions and work quickly to prevent life-threatening complications
    • which patient-teaching measures can maximize a drug's therapeutic effects and minimize its adverse ones
    • how drug therapy can be safely adapted for a patient whose hypertension is complicated by diabetes mellitus or renal insufficiency......and much, much more.
