Digoxin (lanoxin, digitalis) is a cardiac glycoside that increases the strength of the myocardial contractions. The result is increased cardiac output and decrease oxygen demands of the heart. Digoxin is used for:
CHF
Atrial fibrillation
Aflutter
*Digoxin will slow down the heart rate but increase contractility* The major point to remember about digoxin is that the therapeutic window is very narrow from 0.5-2.0ng/mL. Over 2.0ng/mL you will see signs of digoxin toxicity:Digoxin toxicity signs:
yellow spots or halos
nausea
anorexia
vomiting
abdominal pain
Digoxin will lower potassium and low potassium can potentiate toxicity. Teach client signs of hypokalemia! Teach client to monitor apical pulse before each dose.Hold if apical pulse is less than 60BPM.Take digoxin at the same time everyday

Those are the best graphs ever.

In fact, there currently is no evidence that over-the-counter (OTC) antibacterial soap products are any more effective at preventing illness than washing with plain soap and water.

walking pneumonia: term used to describe either a mild pneumonia or an “atypical pneumonia.” Atypical pneumonias are those caused by less common bacterial pathogens or those that do not cause typical lobar infections, like Mycoplasma pneumoniae, Legionella pneumophilia, and Chlamydia…

We have to ask ourselves whether medicine is to remain a humanitarian and respected profession or a new but depersonalized science in the service of prolonging life rather than diminishing human suffering.

Elisabeth Kubler-Ross, 1969

It’s chilling to see what year she said this, and to see which path American medicine chose to take leading us to the current problems we have today.
