Answer

Anticholinergics

These agents are indicated when symptoms of hypoperfusion exist. They are thought to work centrally by suppressing conduction in the vestibular cerebellar pathways. They may have an inhibitory effect on the parasympathetic nervous system.

Atropine IV/IM

Used to increase heart rate through vagolytic effects, causing increase in cardiac output.
