Prelude to International Quiz @ AORA India 2019 - A Brain Teaser
I cut off all the electricity in the body but I am not an electrician. I control jiggle wiggle heart but I am not a magician. I repair ruff & tuff red tubes but I am not a plumber. Blown out mummies need me for deflation but I am not a pump. Brain roaring like a lion listens to me but I am not a circus ring master. According to my father who is a funny moron writing this Riddle, I am considered as elixir of modern Anaesthesia. Who am I?
Physiological calcium antagonist- the predominant mechanism of action. Cuts of all Ca++ induced depolarization- cuts of electricity & potential generation. Control jiggle wiggle heart- antiarrhythmic. Repair ruff & tuff red tubes- vasodiltor against vasoconstricted blood vessels. Blown out mummies- antiepileptic, antihypertensive, tocolytic. Roaring brain- control seizures. Mag in blown out mummies - I meant to say preeclampsia & eclampsia
why to consider this as greatest of great:
it can be used in acute pain, Chronic pain, adjuvant in spinal & nerve blocks, blunts haemodynamic response, prevents sympathetic hormones release from adrenal gland, anti-convulsant, antihypertensive, bronchodilator, vasodilator, tocolytic, antiarrhythmic.
