lower BP by reducing re absorption of sodium and water by kidneys lowering fluid volume. diuretics eg furosemide (lasix) spironolactone (aldactone) Metaolazone, polythiazide.
anti hypertensive med that Lowers blood pressure by reducing resorption of sodium and water by the kidneys, thus lowering circulating fluid volume? Diuretics: Furosemide (Lasix), spironolactone (Aldactone), metolazone, polythiazide, benzthiazide
anti hypertensive med that Combines with beta-adrenergic receptors in the heart, arteries, and arterioles to block response to sympathetic nerve impulses; reduces heart rate and thus cardiac output? Beta-adrenergic blockers: Atenolol (Tenormin), nadolol (Corgard), timolol maleate (Blocadren), propranolol (Inderal)
anti hypertensive med that Acts on arteriolar smooth muscle to cause relaxation and reduce peripheral vascular resistance? Vasodilators: Hydralazine hydrochloride (Apresoline), minoxidil (Loniten)
anti hypertensive med that Reduces peripheral vascular resistance by systemic vasodilation? Calcium channel blockers: Diltiazem (Cardizem, Dilacor XR), verapamil hydrochloride (Calan SR), nifedipine (Procardia), nicardipine (Cardene).
anti hypertensive med that Lowers blood pressure by blocking the conversion of angiotensin I to angiotensin II, preventing vasoconstriction; reduces aldosterone production and fluid retention, lowering circulating fluid volume? Angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors: Captopril (Capoten), enalapril (Vasotec), lisinopril (Prinivil, Zestril), benazepril (Lotensin)
anti hypertensive med that Lowers blood pressure by blocking the binding of angiotensin II, which prevents vasoconstriction? Angiotensin-II receptor blockers (ARBs): Losartan (Cozaar), olmesartan (Benicar)
