How again does epi treat glaucoma? How does it reduce humor production? I just dont.. I just don't know about the epi mechanism. Those little epi's they run circles around me.thanks. i was reading it wrong...just like you said it causes hypertension. I also noticed that the same analogy can be used for epinephrine in the treatment of glaucoma, this how it reduces aqueous humor production. Although it is only of limited use since we don't use it in closed-angle glaucoma.
There's something called as rebound effect...go back to your notes you will come across this. Extremely important to understand when dealing with cardiac patients..also keep in mind you may not be stimulating all adrenergic receptors. So you might have hypertension but hypotension in peripheral circulation.How does ephedrine causes hyPOtension when it stimulates catecholamine release???
