Which ACE-I is available IV?
What is unique regarding captopril?
-Must dose 2-3x/day
-Must take on empty stomach
What is the only direct renin inhibitor?
MOA of thiazides
Inhibit Na reabsorption in DCT
MOA of loop diuretics
Inhibit active transport of Na, Cl, K in ascending Loop of Henle (causing excretion)
MOA of aldosterone blockers
-Prevent Na reabsorption and K excretion
MOA of K+ sparing diuretics
-Block Na reabsorption and K excretion
-INDEPENDENT of aldosterone
MOA of ACE-I
-Inhibit ACE which blocks production of AT II
-Results in lack of bradykinin breakdown (vasodilator)
-Dilate efferent arteriole of kidney
MOA of calcium channel blockers
Inhibits Ca influx (contraction) of cardiac/vascular smooth muscle
Types of Ca channel blockers
MOA of dihydropyridines
Inhibits Ca influx into VASCULAR smooth muscle
MOA of non-dihydropyridines
Inhibits Ca influx into CARDIAC smooth muscle
