What are ACE inhibitors?
Angiotensin-converting-enzyme inhibitors are a class of pharmaceutical drugs that are used to treat patients with high blood pressure and Cardiac infarction.
At Pharmapk we manufacture quality chemicals keeping in view all the pharmaceutical standards. We offer ACE inhibitors ready to export all around the globe.
How do ACE inhibitors work?
ACE inhibitors cause Vasodilation which result cause a decrease in blood pressure. They also lower the blood volume and hence workload on the heart is the activity of ACE cause reduction in need of oxygen for the heart to continue its work. So these all effects combine to eliminate the effects of high blood pressure and cause relief in patients with hypertension.
Patients with cardiac failure ACE help the heart to keep working by lowering its workload and need of oxygen supply hence help patients to recover fast from the effects of a heart attack.
Uses of ACE inhibitors other than hypertension?
ACE inhibitors have a particularly useful role in treating patients with chronic kidney disease because they diminish proteinuria and stabilize renal function (even in the absence of lowering of blood pressure). This effect is particularly valuable in diabetes, and these drugs are now recommended in diabetes even in the absence of hypertension. These benefits probably result from improved intracranial hemodynamics, with decreased glomerular efferent arteriolar resistance and a resulting reduction of intraglomerular capillary pressure.
in heart failure, and after myocardial infarction ACE inhibitors have also proved to be extremely useful now in new developments and recent evidence it is proved that ACE inhibitors reduce the incidence of diabetes in patients with high cardiovascular risk
Toxicity of ACE inhibitors.
Severe hypotension can occur after initial doses of an ACE inhibitor in patients who are hypovolemic as a result of diuretics, salt restriction, or gastrointestinal fluid loss. Other adverse effects common to all ACE inhibitors include acute renal failure (particularly those with bilateral artery stenosis), hyperkalemia, and dry cough sometimes accompanied by wheezing – an effect that may be seen only at higher dosages
Are ACE inhibitors are Safe in Pregnancy?
ACE inhibitors are contraindicated during the second and third trimesters of pregnancy because they pose a risk to both mothers as well as fetuses. Recent evidence suggests that ACE inhibitor usage in early pregnancy has increased teratogenicity risks while also causing minor toxic effects like the altered taste or allergic skin rash which occur in up 10% of patients treated with captopril alone.
