    Antacids

    In this nursing pharmacology guide for student nurses, learn about the uses and nursing care plan considerations needed for patients taking antacids.

    Histamine-2 Antagonists

    Learn about histamine-2 antagonists, its uses, and the nursing considerations for patients using them.

    Proton Pump Inhibitors

    Learn about proton pump inhibitors, its uses, and the nursing considerations for patients using them.

    Inhaled Steroids

    Learn about inhaled steroids in this nursing pharmacology guide for student nurses! Get to know its uses, side-effects, nursing considerations and more.

    Lung Surfactants

    Lung surfactants are naturally occurring compounds or lipoproteins containing lipids and apoproteins that reduce the surface tension within the alveoli, allowing expansion of the alveoli for gas exchange.

    Bronchodilators and Antiasthmatics

    Bronchodilators, or antiasthmatics are medications used to facilitate respiration by dilating the airways. They are helpful in symptomatic relief or prevention of bronchial asthma and for bronchospasm associated with COPD.

    Expectorants and Mucolytics

    Learn about the uses and nursing care plan considerations needed for patients taking expectorants and mucolytics in this nursing pharmacology guide.

    Antihistamines

    Antihistamines block the release or action of histamine, a chemical released during inflammation that increases secretions and narrows airways.

    Decongestants

    Learn about the uses and nursing care plan considerations needed for patients taking decongestants in this nursing pharmacology study guide.

    Antitussives

    Antitussives act on the cough-control center in the medulla to suppress the cough reflex; if the cough is nonproductive and irritating, an antitussive may be taken.
