Cardiovascular Pharmacology

Cardiovascular Pharmacology

Cardiovascular pharmacology delves into the science of drugs for the heart, encompassing origin, composition, effects, and toxicity. It examines how cardiovascular drugs interact with therapeutic value. The cardiovascular system nourishes organs and tissues through blood, and disease disrupts this, causing organ deprivation. Treatment involves anti-anginals like nitrates, anti-arrhythmics such as quinidines, anti-hypertensives like ACE inhibitors, anti-coagulants like heparin, anti-hyperlipidemic agents including Vitorin, hypo-glycemic agents like Metformin, Sulfonylureas, and anti-thyroid drugs with thyroid hormones.
