 Synonyms & Historicals
Bis-Trimethylammonium Compounds .
Bis-Trimethyl-Ammonium Compounds .
Bis Trimethyl Ammonium Compounds .
Bis Trimethylammonium Compounds .
Methonium Compounds .
Compounds containing polymethylene bis-trimethylammonium cations. Members of this group frequently act as ganglionic blockers and neuromuscular depolarizing agents. .
Hexamethonium Compounds .
Compounds, Hexamethonium .
Compounds containing the hexamethylenebis(trimethylammonium) cation. Members of this group frequently act as antihypertensive agents and selective ganglionic blocking agents. .
Decamethonium Compounds .
Compounds, Decamethonium .
Compounds that contain the decamethylenebis(trimethyl)ammonium radical. These compounds frequently act as neuromuscular depolarizing agents. .
Ganglionic Blockers .
Blocking Agents, Ganglionic .
Ganglionic Blockaders .
Agents, Ganglionic Blocking .
Agents, Ganglioplegic .
Blockaders, Ganglionic .
Blockers, Ganglionic .
Ganglionic Blocking Agents .
Ganglioplegic Agents .
Agents having as their major action the interruption of neural transmission at nicotinic receptors on postganglionic autonomic neurons. Because their actions are so broad, including blocking of sympathetic and parasympathetic systems, their therapeutic use has been largely supplanted by more specific drugs. They may still be used in the control of blood pressure in patients with acute dissecting aortic aneurysm and for the induction of hypotension in surgery. .
Neuromuscular Depolarizing Agents .
Depolarizing Blockers .
Agents, Neuromuscular Depolarizing .
Blockers, Depolarizing .
Depolarizing Agents, Neuromuscular .
Relaxants, Depolarizing Muscle .
Depolarizing Muscle Relaxants .
Muscle Relaxants, Depolarizing .
Drugs that interrupt transmission at the skeletal neuromuscular junction by causing sustained depolarization of the motor end plate. These agents are primarily used as adjuvants in surgical anesthesia to cause skeletal muscle relaxation. .
