In brief: Afterload reduction

The word we used for vasoldilator drugs in congestive heart failure is afterload reduction.
These medications make it easier for the heart to empty at the time of contraction. Examples would be lisinopril, enalapril, losartan, valsartan. These medicines are frequently used in conjunction with diuretics and beta blockers.
