This Week- Nurse Review on Antihypertensives
Hypertension is one of the most common chronic illness in the US and also one of the leading causes of heart disease. Before hypertension reaches its complications, patients with hypertension are given medications to be taken everyday to maintain their blood pressure at normal.
There are different antihypertensives given to individual patients. Though these all work to lower the blood pressure, it differs in the mechanism in which they work. The types of antihypertensives include beta blockers, calcium channel blockers, ACE inhibitors, diuretics, adrenergic modifiers, Angiotensin II receptor blockers and other combination medications.
For more information on antihypertensive medications and their basic drug information, follow the links below.
