Angiotensin Converting Enzyme Ace Inhibitor Blood Pressure Agent
Can you tell me how angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitor(ace)inhibitors modulate stress on the heart and blood pressure?
Blood pressure is a measurement of the force placed on the blood vessels and is comprised of the "systolic" pressure (the top number on a blood pressure meter) which is the peak pressure when the heart is pumping, and the "diastolic" pressure (the bottom number on a blood pressure meter) which is the pressure during the resting phase ...Read more

Is digoxin gold standard in treating hf and a-fib? Cardiologist of my mom prefers digoxin over angiotensin-converting-enzyme inhibitors.
No: I think digoxin therapy should only be considered in patients who continue to have signs and symptoms in spite of proven available other therapies, such as b-blockers, acei/arb's and diuretics. The other area where digoxin may be helpful is af rate control although recent negative data in regards to mortality raise some concerns. ...Read more

Generally, is it true that ACE inhibitors as a class of medication have a fairly weak effect in reducing blood pressure in hypertension?
Vasodilators: They dilate blood vessels.Get a more detailed answer ›
Blood Pressure: Meds: Ace inhibitors block the conversion angiotensin i to angiotensin ii, which constricts the vessels, increases the following: salt retention in the kidney, sympathetic tone, aldosterone and ADH (vasopressin) (anti-diuretic hormone) secretion. The inhibition of this conversion decreases blood pressure and wall stress in the heart muscle. ...Read more
