Question 1 of 25

Do you use Atropine on a patient who has had a heart transplant?

"No, I would not use Atropine on a heart transplant patient, as it is not recommended. Working in a transplant unit, I have worked with many heart transplant patients and have never once considered administering Atropine, as I know it is contraindicated. Instead, I usually administer theophylline, as it offers effective and specific therapy for heart transplant patients, especially those with early bradyarrhythmias."
