Cholinergic drug , any of various drugs that inhibit , enhance , or mimic the action of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine , the primary transmitter of nerve impulses within the parasympathetic nervous system —i. Acetylcholine release by nerve impulses can be blocked by botulinum toxin , a very potent chemical that is produced in food contaminated by the bacteria Clostridium botulinum and is an occasional cause of severe food poisoning botulism. The most serious effect is paralysis of the skeletal muscle. However, when botulinum toxin is locally injected, it can be used to treat severe muscle spasm or severe, uncontrollable sweating. Under such trade names as Botox , it is also used for cosmetic purposes; botulinum toxin injected locally will paralyze muscles of the face, thus relaxing the skin and reducing wrinkles. Many drugs interact with acetylcholine receptors. Acetylcholine itself produces extremely short-lived effects because it is destroyed rapidly in the blood.

The autonomic nervous system ANS is the major involuntary, unconscious, automatic portion of the nervous system and contrasts in several ways with the somatic voluntary nervous system. The anatomy, neurotransmitter chemistry, receptor characteristics, and functional integration of the ANS are discussed in this chapter. Major autonomic drug groups are discussed in Chapters 7 , 8 , 9 , and Drugs in many other groups have significant autonomic effects, many of which are undesirable. The motor efferent portion of the ANS is the major pathway for information transmission from the central nervous system CNS to the involuntary effector tissues smooth muscle, cardiac muscle, and exocrine glands; Figure 6—1.
Adrenergic drugs are medications that stimulate certain nerves in your body. They do this either by mimicking the action of the chemical messengers epinephrine and norepinephrine or by stimulating their release. These drugs are used in many life-threatening conditions, including cardiac arrest, shock, asthma attack, or allergic reaction. During times of stress, the SNS releases chemical messengers from the adrenal gland. These chemical messengers act on your body to increase heart rate, sweating, and breathing rate and to decrease digestion.

This field is of particular interest in a variety of physiological and pathophysiological processes involving virtually all organ systems. Much of our present, detailed knowledge of autonomic receptors has been obtained using pharmacological methods resulting from the availability of a large number of experimental compounds, which are more or less selective agonists or antagonists with respect to the numerous receptor subtypes associated with the autonomic nervous system.

Physiology and Pathophysiology of the Heart pp Cite as. The autonomic nervous system is the major system extrinsic to the heart that regulates myocardial contractility. This system can be subdivided on the basis of anatomy, functional effects, and neurotransmitters released from postganglionic nerves into two major divisions, sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems fig. In general, an increase in sympathetic nerve activity stimulates the heart i.
First we will take a look at the different divisions of the nervous system. Direct-acting cholinergic drugs bind to cholinergic receptors on specific effector organs, stimulating the organ in a similar way as ACh. Too much cholinergic medication can result in overstimulation of the parasympathetic nervous system, causing unwanted side effects.
Found in most animal tissues, choline is a primary component of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine and functions with inositol as a basic constituent of lecithin. Choline also prevents fat deposits in the liver and facilitates the movement of fats into cells. The parasympathetic nervous system , which uses acetylcholine almost exclusively to send its messages, is said to be almost entirely cholinergic. Neuromuscular junctions, preganglionic neurons of the sympathetic nervous system , the basal forebrain , and brain stem complexes are also cholinergic, as are the receptor for the merocrine sweat glands. The hypothesis states that a possible cause of AD is the reduced synthesis of acetylcholine , a neurotransmitter involved in both memory and learning, two important components of AD.
Сьюзан поняла, в чем дело: все это время Хейл вел себя тихо, подозрительно тихо, поскольку отлично знал, что нет такой диагностики, в которой использовалась бы цепная мутация, тем более такая, которая занимала ТРАНСТЕКСТ уже восемнадцать часов. Хейл не проронил ни слова.
- Милая ночка вдвоем в Детском манеже. - Втроем, - поправила Сьюзан. - Коммандер Стратмор у. Советую исчезнуть, пока он тебя не засек. Хейл пожал плечами: - Зато он не имеет ничего против твоего присутствия. Тебе он всегда рад. Сьюзан заставила себя промолчать.
Игра в шарады закончилась. Дело принимает совсем дурной оборот. - Итак, кольцо взял немец. - Верно. - Куда он делся. - Понятия не имею.
Но завтра в восемь утра тоже есть… - Мне нужно узнать, улетела ли этим рейсом моя подруга. Она собиралась купить билет прямо перед вылетом. Женщина нахмурилась: - Извините, сэр. Этим рейсом улетели несколько пассажиров, купивших билет перед вылетом. Но мы не имеем права сообщать информацию личного характера… - Это очень важно, - настаивал Беккер. - Мне просто нужно узнать, улетела ли. И больше .
