During cardiac arrest, there are four emergency drugs that should come in hand – lidocaine, epinephrine, atropine and narcan.  Lidocaine is used to control arrhythmia when there is an erratic heartbeat. Epinephrine, on the other hand, increases heart contractility, constricts blood vessels and dilates air passages. Atropine is used to resolve bradycardia and asystole. Lastly, Narcan is used to counteract opiate overdose in opiate drug users.  emergency drugs nursing mnemonics
