GLOSSARY (summary)


corticosteroids
Substance close to cortisone. The natural corticoids, necessary for the functioning of the organism, are made by the adrenal glands. Synthetic corticosteroids, chemical derivatives of cortisone, are used as powerful anti-inflammatory drugs.


addiction
Psychic or physical need caused by taking certain natural or medicinal substances. This condition may be accompanied, at cessation of the catch, by various symptoms, grouped under the term of withdrawal syndrome.


diuretics
Medication allowing increased kidney water removal. Most often, this loss of water follows the loss of salts caused by the drug (salidiuretic).
Diuretics are mainly used in the treatment of high blood pressure, while their mechanism of action in this disease is poorly understood. They are also prescribed in acute or chronic heart failure, edema and other rarer ailments.
These drugs cause loss of sodium and potassium (except for some of them called "potassium-sparing"). Their prolonged administration therefore requires regular blood potassium control, to avoid heart problems that may result from hypokalemia (lack of potassium in the blood). Lack of sodium is another possible but less frequent consequence of the prolonged use of diuretics; it is also detected by a blood test.


fecal impaction
Stool plug in the rectum or in the colon. It is to be feared in the elderly or constipated, or those who remain bedridden for a long time. It exposes to a risk of obstruction of the digestive tract.


stimulating laxative
A powerful but irritating laxative for the digestive tract, responsible for a loss of mineral salts (potassium, etc.) by the body. Its prolonged use causes an addiction: it is no longer possible to go to the saddle without medication. In the long term, definitive lesions of the internal wall of the intestine may appear (laxative disease).


potassium
Mineral element present in large quantities in the body.
See also: kalaemia.


torsades de pointes
Severe heart rhythm disorder, favored by:
  • hypokalaemia or situations favoring it: significant and prolonged diarrhea, repeated use of stimulant laxative, etc.,
  • a heart too slow,
  • a visible predisposition on the electrocardiogram,
  • taking certain medications.
Drugs that can cause torsades de pointes include quinidine, hydroquinidine, disopyramide, amiodarone, sotalol, ibutilide, certain neuroleptics, cisapride, diphenemil, halofantrine, mizolastine, pentamidine, moxifloxacin and erythromycin.


symptomatic treatment
Treatment that suppresses or alleviates the symptoms of a disease without addressing its cause.


heart rhythm disorders
Severe or benign anomaly of the frequency of contractions of the heart. Extrasystole is contraction occurring just before or after a normal contraction, often perceived as a slight shock in the chest. Fibrillation is an irregular and disorderly contraction. Other disorders include torsades de pointes, Wolf-Parkinson-White syndrome, Bouveret's disease, tachysystolia, flutter and atrioventricular block, etc.


way
  • Pathway (route of administration) used to administer drugs: oral, sublingual, subcutaneous, intramuscular, intravenous, intradermal, transdermal.
  • Set of hollow organs allowing the passage of air (airways), food (digestive tract), urine (urinary tract), bile (bile ducts), etc.
