Cardiovascular Pharmacology

by Pravin Shukle, MD

Cardiovascular pharmacology encompasses the groups of drugs used for the management and control of cardiovascular conditions, such as hypertension, heart failure, angina, and arrhythmias. Cardiovascular disease is one of the most important public health concerns and a major burden for healthcare systems in the Western world. Their associated morbidity can severely impair the functioning and quality of life of affected individuals.

In this course, the student will be introduced to the pharmacology of the therapeutic options for hypertension, heart failure, angina, and arrhythmias. Lipid control medication will also be discussed.

For optimal comprehension, the student is required to have a previous understanding of molecular and cell biology and cardiovascular physiology, with an emphasis on the control of blood pressure, as well as the concepts of the cardiac cycle, cardiac output, ejection fraction, preload, afterload, and the cardiac conduction system.
