Low-osmolality contrast media 1. Non-ionic monomers • Contrast agent of choice because of their non-ionic nature and lower osmolality, they are less chemo-toxic than ionic monomers. • The tri-iodinated benzene ring is made water-soluble by the addition of hydrophilic hydroxyl groups to organic side chains. • Because there is no carboxyl group, non-ionic monomers do not ionize in solution. Therefore they have half the osmolality of ionic monomers in solution. g. 240, 300 or 370 mg/mL). ). 2. Ionic dimers: • Formed from 2 ionic monomers with the elimination of 1 carboxyl group, they contain 6 iodine atoms for every 2 particles in solution.
For a given iodine concentration, the non-ionic dimmers have the lowest osmolality of all the contrast agents. CONTRAST AGENTS • Because of their high viscosity, they have limited clinical use. ). Adverse reactions to Iodinated Contrast Media (ICM) • The incidence of any adverse reaction to ICM is 15%. • The risk of contrast reaction is signiﬁcantly less with low osmolality contrast agents than with high osmolality contrast agents and with nonionic contrast media compared to ionic contrast media.
Cessation of smoking is the most clinically efﬁcacious and cost-effective intervention for the treatment of PAD. Management: includes • Use of nicotine patches or nicotine polacrilex gum. • If this is unsuccessful, a nicotine nasal spray and/or treatment with the antidepressant bupropion should be considered. • A nicotine inhaler is also available. Hypertension (Systolic >130 mmHg and diastolic >80 mmHg) • Established risk factor for PAD. 75 times. • Much of the evidence for treating hypertension with PAD extrapolated from data from coronary artery disease (CAD).
