Past Medical History

Obtaining past medical history is just common sense.

  • Previous cardiovascular disease increases the risk of arrhythmias
  • Previous chronic respiratory disease will increase the adverse effects from respiratory depressant drugs
  • Previous epilepsy increases the risk of seizures with proconvulsant drugs
  • Previous renal or hepatic disease may reduce the clearance of some drugs
  • Myotonic dystrophy is a contraindication to aminoglycoside therapy (just thrown in to see if you're still awake)
