In this lecture Professor Zach Murphy will be presenting on Antiarrhythmic Drugs. We begin this lecture by reviewing Cardiac Physiology which will be essential in order to understand how these antiarrhythmics work. We will then go through the 5 types of Antiarrhythmic Drugs which include: Sodium Channel Blockers (Type I AAD), Beta Blockers (Type II AAD), Potassium Channel Blockers (Type III AAD), Calcium Channel Blockers (Type IV AAD), Adenosine + Digoxin (Type V AAD). After discussing these classes of drugs mechanism of action and indications, we will then transition into each of these types of drugs adverse reactions. We conclude this lecture by going over practice problems for Antiarrhythmic Drugs that we will be reviewing with you. We hope you enjoy this lecture!
