Clinical Studies Role of Cardiac Factors in the Initial Hypotensive Action by Beta-Adrenoreceptor Blocking Agents


The blood pressure decrease after beta-blockade is delayed and there are little data on the hemodynamic events associated with the initial decrease in blood pressure. The present study measured the hemodynamics of the initial hypotensive action of timolol maleate, a nonselective betaadrenoreceptor blocking agent, in 10 patients with essential hypertension… (More)
