why use epi after v fib? is it to restart heart with sinus rhythm after shock? or some kinda reflex thing?


Hi woman, its action is:
1-stimulates vascular alpha receptore: increases peripheral resistance: increases Blood pressure
2-increases cardiac out put via beta receptors
These two action are necessary for the situation like shock and VF in which cardiac out put decreased.


Thanks for your sharing.
