「有心做護士既 只有唔適合既部門 無唔適合做護士既人🔥」
Yesterday I was able to watch an MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) being done on one of my little patients. He was only 2 and a half.
It was actually a bit scary at first as the radiologist couldn’t stress enough about not having any type of metal on my person, so I was screened before I could enter the room and educated on ferromagnetic & non-ferromagnetic materials. It was interesting to see how radiology works and what the images on the computer show.
Unfortunately my patient woke up when we had to add contrast to his cannula even though he was sedated twice. 💉
Running on empty? 🤔 #life

Tug Of War: Dopamine Agonist VS. Antagonist. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Medicine is a broad and complex topic. Let’s simplify things, as much as possible.
In Australia, ALL antipsychotic (e.g. olanzapine, haloperidol, quetiapine and risperidone) medicines block dopamine. Additionally, a lot of antiemetics (eg domperidone, haloperidol, prochlorperazine and metoclopramide) are also dopamine ANTAGONIST. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Notice how haloperidol is listed as an example for both. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Most Parkinson's disease medicines work by INCREASING dopamine or acting as dopamine AGONISTS.
Look at the adverse effects for antipsychotics and antiemetics dopamine antagonist, do you see how they list ESPE such as akathisia and tardive dyskinesia. These are symptoms of Parkinson's disease. Note: domperidone does not readily cross the blood–brain barrier so EPSE are rare.
Now, let’s look at the Parkinson's disease medicines adverse effects. Do you see how nausea and vomiting, confusion, hallucinations and impulse control disorders are listed? Note: domperidone maybe given to help with the emesis.
There are a lot more examples on how all these interconnect, which we may write about later 😜.
In summary of today’s post, for adverse effects of antipsychotic and antiemetics dopamine antagonists think of Parkinson's disease. For adverse effects of Parkinson's disease medicines think of psychosis and emesis.
