    Transcript

    00:00 Now, there's groups of medications we can use. ACE inhibitors.

    00:04 How do you recognize them? They end in "pril". Angiotensin II receptor blockers end in "tan".

    00:11 Beta-blockers end in "alol" or "olol".

    00:14 And calcium channel blockers they end in "pine" some of them, P-I-N-E.

    00:21 So, that's just a quick study tip for you, so you'll recognize the generic names of some of the most common medications we use to treat hypertension.

    00:29 Now, there's some sympatholytic drugs other than beta blockers and we've got some direct vasodilators and selective aldosterone-receptor antagonists.

    00:39 So, there's some other groups but they don't help us so much on the names, that's why we put them on the other slide.
