RECEPTORSwelcome to the game : RECEPTORSwelcome to the game Clint Ferguson Betsy Allen Brooke Newman Brittney Barber Tyiesha McCoy Receptor=receiver : Receptor=receiver Receptor – a molecule on the inside/outside of a cell that a drug binds to and uses to produce its effect. Think of a receptor as a receiver in a football game. The receptor receives drugs in the same fashion as a receiver catches a pass from the quarterback. Slide 3: Receptors are very specific as to what substances will attach to them and cause a reaction. If the receptor is a different shape then there will be no reaction. Medications fall into two general categories: : Medications fall into two general categories: Agonists & Antagonists Agonists = action : Agonists = action Agonist=a molecule that attaches to a receptor and elicits a response Think of agonists as your body’s own chemical teammates Antagonist = Against : Antagonist = Against Antagonist- a molecule that acts against and blocks an action Think of an antagonist as the opposing teams defense Why do nurses care about receptors? : Why do nurses care about receptors? Because understanding receptors means understanding how a drug works in a patient’s body. Receptors not only allow drugs to work and create a therapeutic response, but receptors also allow drugs to cause non-therapeutic side effects. If we understand the drug and how it works, we will know what signs and symptoms to look for NURSES=REFEREES : NURSES=REFEREES In patient care, nurses ensure that the rules of medication administration are followed by adhering to the “5 Rights” (route, dose, patient, medication, time) Nurses are the last line of defense for the patient Nurses have the right to “blow the whistle” if the rules are not being followed Let’s review our winning team : Let’s review our winning team Receptor = Receiver Agonist = Action Antagonist = Against Nurses care because we are patient advocates Benefits for patient = They receive knowledgeable, safe, and effective care References : References Moroney, A.
