I am wondering if anyone can offer guidance about how to choose which PRN blood pressure medication to give when there have been multiple types ordered.
For example, when might you choose a calcium channel blocker over a beta blocker?
Patient (in the 80s) has had a hemorrhagic stroke and now comatose and DNR, SBP in the 160s, A-Fib/A-flutter with a HR to 110, RR irregular (20-40 throughout the day). A hospice eval was already done, but I still felt bad when the patient passed, and wonder if I chose the wrong medication to treat her HTN with.
Thanks in advance for your advice.
