Sulfonylureas

Sulfonylureas is another group of agent used to control blood glucose level.
Antidiabetic Agents Nursing Pharmacology and Study Guide

Antidiabetic Agents

Antidiabetic drugs are a group of drug structurally unrelated to sulfonylureas and are effective when used in combination with insulin or sulfonylureas.
- Lymphatic System Anatomy and Physiology

Lymphatic System Anatomy and Physiology

The lymphatic system includes lymph, lymphocytes, lymphatic vessels, lymph nodes, tonsils, the spleen, and the thymus gland.
- Muscular System Anatomy and Physiology

Muscular System Anatomy and Physiology

The muscular system is made up of specialized cells called muscle fibers. Their main function is contractibility. Muscles, connected to bones or internal organs and blood vessels, are in charge for movement. Almost every movement in the body is the outcome of muscle contraction.
Adrenergic Agonists (Sympathomimetics) Nursing Pharmacology Study Guides

Adrenergic Agonists (Sympathomimetics)

Adrenergic agonists are autonomic nervous system drugs that stimulate the adrenergic receptors of the sympathetic nervous system (SNS), either directly (by reacting with receptor sites) or indirectly (by increasing norepinephrine levels). An adrenergic agonist is also called a sympathomimetic because it stimulates the effects of SNS.
Adrenergic Antagonists (Sympatholytics) Nursing Pharmacology Study Guides

Adrenergic Antagonists (Sympatholytics)

Adrenergic antagonists are also referred to as sympatholytics because they lyse, or block, the effects of the sympathetic nervous system. They react with specific adrenergic receptor sites without activating them, thus preventing the typical manifestations of SNS activation.
Anticholinergics (Parasympatholytics)

Anticholinergics (Parasympatholytics)

Anticholinergics are drugs that oppose the effects of acetylcholine. In essence, they also lyse and block the effects of parasympathetic nervous system (PNS) so they are also called as parasympatholytics.
Cholinergic Agonists (Parasympathomimetics) Nursing Pharmacology Study Guides

Cholinergic Agonists (Parasympathomimetics)

Cholinergic agonists act at the same site as the neurotransmitter acetylcholine (ACh) and increase the activity of the ACh receptor sites throughout the body. Cholinergic agonists act at the same site as the neurotransmitter acetylcholine (ACh) and increase the activity of the ACh receptor sites throughout the body.Cholinergic agonists act at the same site as the neurotransmitter acetylcholine (ACh) and increase the activity of the ACh receptor sites throughout the body. They are also called as parasympathomimetics.
Endocrine System Anatomy and Physiology

Endocrine System Anatomy and Physiology

The major endocrine organs of the body include the pituitary, thyroid, parathyroid, adrenal, pineal and thymus glands, the pancreas, and the gonads. The regulatory functions of the nervous and endocrine systems are similar in some aspects, but differ in such ways.
Immune Stimulants Nursing Pharmacology Study Guides

Immunostimulants

Immunostimulants or immune stimulants are drugs that energize the immune system when it is exhausted from fighting prolonged invasion or when the immune system needs help fighting a specific pathogen or cancer cell. It is one of the classifications of drug class called immunomodulators.
