    About the Lecture

    The lecture Group 3: Potassium Channel Blockers – Antiarrhythmic Drugs by Pravin Shukle, MD is from the course Cardiovascular Pharmacology.


    Included Quiz Questions

    1. These medications act on the potassium channels, which affects repolarization of the membrane
    2. These medications will shorten the action potential
    3. These medications will shorten the PR interval on the ECG
    4. These medications will shorten the effective refractory period (ERP)
    5. They increase the ventricular response to atrial dysrhythmia and tachycardia
    1. Amiodarone and sotalol
    2. Amiodarone and esmolol
    3. Esmolol and sotalol
    1. It blocks the slow sodium, potassium, and calcium currents, and has beta blocking ability
    2. It blocks the slow sodium current
    3. It blocks the slow sodium, potassium, and calcium currents
    4. It has beta blocking ability
    1. The crackles are due to fibrosis, consider pulmonary fibrosis secondary to Amiodarone toxicity
    2. The crackles are due to pulmonary edema, consider heart failure from excessive beta blockade
    3. The crackles are due to blood in the lungs, consider pulmonary hemorrhage due to dabigatran
    4. The crackles are due to air trapping, consider emphysema due to smoking
    1. Hepatic steatosis
    2. Corneal verticillata
    3. Microcrystalline deposits causing pulmonary fibrosis
    4. Parasthesia and tremor due to peripheral neuropathy
    5. Tremor due to thyroid dysfunction (hyperthyroidism), or alternatively hypothyroidism
