What do the ARBs (angiotensin receptor blockers) end in?
What med should not be given with Lasix (furosemide) d/t hypokalemia?
this class of meds has a limited use b/o high incidence of orthostatic hypotension and reflex tachycardia

What class of meds is normally given first to someone who has hypertension?
What class of meds is normally given first to someone with angina?
What class of meds is normally given first to someone with heart failure?
What class of meds blocks calcium from entering cell, causing less muscle contraction, which decreases BP. Mainly used to treat supraventricular dysrhythmias by slowing conduction.
This class of meds blocks reabsorption of sodium in loop of Henle, secreting more urine, which lowers BP
what class of meds acts on the distal tubule in kidneys to block Na reabsorption, increasing water excretion, decreasing BP
K sparing diuretics
what class of meds increase urination w/out effecting potassium levels?
What class of meds blocks angiotensin, causing vasodilation, decreasing BP?
decreases activity in heart by slowing conduction and automaticity, decreasing BP and HR..also dilating the bronchi
this class of meds inhibits vasoconstriction in arterioles, decreasing BP and HR
this class of meds causes relaxation of smooth muscle in arterioles, decreasing BP
potassium channel blockers
this class of meds prolongs action potential and lengthens the resting period in heart, stabilizing dysrhythmias
sodium channel blockers
this class of meds blocks sodium channel in action potential, slowing conduction of heart, stabilizing dysrhythmias
this class of meds increases the force of a contraction, is + inotropic, increasing cardiac output
what beta blocker has potential to worsen heart failure and is always used in combo with other agents, usually ACE inhibitors??
