Persantine IV Description

Persantine IV (intravenous) or generic Dipyridamole is administered by a doctor or other healthcare professional , in order to carry out a ‘chemical’ stress test to confirm whether you have blocked arteries or have any heart damage. The doctor can recommend your stress test be done with Persantine IV if you have physical limitations that make it difficult for you to make use of a tread mill in order to cause an increase in your heart beats. The testing usually takes place in a hospital or medical facility and can take up a few hours of your day. The generic alternative is not manufactured by the company that makes the brand product.

Chemical Testing to Check for Arterial Blockages

Once all preparations have been done to begin your chemical stress test, Persantine IV will be administered into a vein to relax the blood vessels of your heart so it receives more blood, as if you were physically active. A short-lived radioactive ingredient is then administered that helps to show if there are any blockages in your arteries that could be the cause of your symptoms, including chest pain, heart palpitations, dizziness, and nausea.

Conditions Treated by Persantine IV

Your heart consists of 4 valves; tricuspid, pulmonary, mitral, and aortic. Their job is to control the blood flow by directing it through different chambers or areas in your heart. If any of these valves stop working properly, the blood flow may be restricted through your heart or blood can leak between the chambers if a valve does not close tight.

Having a congenital heart defect, an infection called endocarditis, a mitral or aortic valve disease, or even normal wear on an aging heart can be detected through this test and may require repair or replacement. Medication can usually treat minor problems successfully.

Before Persantine IV is Administered

If there is a possibility that you are pregnant, trying to become pregnant, or you are breast feeding, tell your doctor before undergoing a stress test with Persantine IV. Discuss your medical history with the doctor and list all Rx drugs you currently take or use, as well as OTC meds, herbal remedies, and vitamin supplements. You may be required to stop taking or using some of your medications for a period of time before or after the Persantine IV.

Persantine IV Precautions

Having abnormalities of cardiac impulse formation/ conduction or severe coronary artery disease (CAD) can increase your risk of experiencing a number of serious adverse reactions to Persantine IV, some with fatal outcomes. Aminophylline may be injected intravenously to reverse the majority of adverse effects of Persantine IV.
