mucus and airway clearance. Mechanism of Action: Salbutamol Inhibits the release of bronchoconstricting agents from mast cells, inhibits microvascular leakage, and enhances mucociliary clearance. Ipratropium It blocks muscarinic cholinergic receptors, Most likely due to actions of cyclic guanosine monophosphate (cGMP) on intracellular calcium, this result in decreased contractility of smooth muscle. Used to reduce colonization or prophylactic treatment for localized infection process. Mechanism of Action: Azithromycin binds to the 50S subunit of the 70S bacterial ribosomes, and therefore inhibits

Meropenem readily penetrates the cell wall of most Gram- positive and Gram- negative bacteria to reach penicillin-binding- protein (PBP) targets. The bactericidal activity of meropenem results from the inhibition of cell wall synthesis. 3. To facilitate airway clearance 1. To find the cause of lung problem such as DOB and Chest pain. 2. To distinguish presence of infection, identify specific pathogens and influence of the choice of treatment

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
