Conference paper


The primary objectives of this discussion of cardiovascular pharmacology are twofold: to examine the nursing care of children receiving a variety of cardiovascular therapeutic agents and to describe the application of some of the newer medications being used currently in the care of children with cardiovascular disorders. In order to accomplish these two purposes, this abstract is intended to review the physiologic mechanisms that maintain cardiovascular function and to classify and provide basic pharmacologic data on those drugs used most frequently for cardiovascular support.
