Felt like posting pics of artificial hip replacements in my class.
Notice that most of the metal is hardly smooth, this is to encourage integration of the prosthesis into the organic bone.
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:
- Atrial fibrillation
*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
- 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
