Activity Description

This activity centers on amiloride, a medication integral to the management of hypertension and heart failure. As a potassium-sparing diuretic, amiloride's indications, contraindications, and adverse drug reactions are discussed. Additionally, amiloride's FDA-issued box warning concerning hyperkalemia, pertinent drug interactions, mechanism of action, pharmacokinetics, and considerations in medical toxicology are also discussed. A thorough understanding of amiloride's therapeutic employment is crucial for healthcare professionals to optimize cardiovascular patient care. The course imparts comprehensive insights into the complexities of administration and underscores the significance of diligent monitoring strategies. Effective navigation of amiloride therapy requires collaborative efforts among healthcare teams, emphasizing the imperative role of interprofessional cooperation in enhancing patient outcomes within cardiovascular care standards.


Target Audience

Learning Objectives

At the conclusion of this activity, the learner will be better able to:

  • Identify the mechanism of action of amiloride.

  • Evaluate the adverse drug reaction associated with amiloride.

  • Implement appropriate monitoring of patients taking amiloride to prevent potential toxicity.

  • Implement effective collaboration and communication among interprofessional team members to improve outcomes and treatment efficacy for patients who might benefit from amiloride therapy.
