Phosphodiesterase inhibitor Euphyllin (Aminophylline) is a bronchodilator medication.
Euphyllin (Aminophylline) relaxes the muscles of the bronchi, increases mucociliary clearance, stimulates the contraction of the diaphragm, improves the function of the respiratory and intercostal muscles, stimulates the respiratory center and improves alveolar ventilation, which ultimately reduces the severity and frequency episodes of apnea .
Euphyllin (Aminophylline) is a moderate diuretic. Euphyllin (Aminophylline) increases blood volume in the kidneys, promotes bile duct dilation, inhibits platelet aggregation, increases erythrocyte resistance to deformation (improves blood rheology), normalizes microcirculation and reduces thrombus formation.
Euphyllin (Aminophylline) has a stimulating effect on the heart, increases the strength and number of heart contractions, increases coronary blood flow and myocardial oxygen demand.
