Vaughan-Williams: What you are referring to, I believe, is what is called the vaughan-williams classification (circa 1970) of anti arrhythmic drugs. Class I drugs block sodium channels on the cells, class ii drugs block beta-receptors, class iii drugs block potassium channels, and class IV drugs block calcium channels.
