differences between atropine and scopolamine?
scopolamine has greater CNS effect, thus it's used against motion sickness
what competitive Muscarinic Antagonist is used against Parkinson's?
what Muscarinic Antagonist is given for COPD/asthma? administration? CNS activity?
Ipratropium. given via inhalation. quaternary amine = doesn't get to CNS
describe Pirenzepine?
selective antagonist for Muscarinic-1-Rs, which reduce GI motility and secretions, particularly reducing gastric acid - peptic ulcers
what cholinergic antagonist can be used for incontinence/ hyperactive bladder?

after curare - will reverse curare's effect, restore muscle activity
after succinylcholine - will increase paralysis
dif between curare/succinylcholine in their indications?

succinylcholine is rapid to act and rapid to degrade, and can be used in ER to aid in intubation
compare and contrast hyperthermia as induced by atropine and succinylcholine
