ANS Drugs Concept Map Nursing
This ANS drugs concept map nursing depicts autonomic drugs that can inhibit or enhance the parasympathetic and sympathetic nervous systems' functions. This type of medication can treat various conditions, including glaucoma, asthma, urinary, gastrointestinal, and cardiopulmonary disorders. Activating the parasympathetic nervous system can result in significant physiological effects such as an increase in the glandular secretion, an increase in smooth muscle contraction, and a decrease in both heart contractility and heart rate. Neurotransmission involves two types of nicotinic receptors and muscarinic receptors to achieve the aforementioned physiological effects. These two receptor groups can bind to the same neurotransmitter, acetylcholine, to relay neurotransmission in the synapse.
