Why can hypotension occur with relative bradycardia in ai?

Physiology: Aortic insufficiency (ai) means that the aortic valve leaks during diastole, which is the relaxation phase of the cardiac cycle. Relative bradycardia means there is a slowing of heart rate which also means a prolongation of diastole. A prolonged diastole does mean more ai which results in lower blood pressure (i.e. Hypotension). ...Read more

Hypotension (Definition)

Hypotension is defined as "low blood pressure". Blood pressure is measured as two numbers and expressed as systolic blood pressure (sbp) / diastolic blood pressure (dbp). The sbp is the pressure that is generated when the heart squeezes. Dbp occurs when the heart relaxes. 120/70 is considered normal in adults. Less than 100/60 (of either number) can ...Read more

If a patient having angina pectoris is also suffering from hypotension and bradycardia which antianginal can be used that do not exacerbate hypotensio?

If a patient having angina pectoris is also suffering from hypotension and bradycardia which antianginal can be used that do not exacerbate hypotensio?

Ranolazine: Ranolazine is a specific antianginal therapy that does not cause bradycardia or hypotension. Beta blockers and calcium channel blockers should be avoided in bradycardia, while nitrates should be avoided in hypotension. Angina may also be caused by bradycardia, if slower than the heart demands. A treadmill test to evaluate for an appropriate rise in heart rate would help. ...Read more
