Hypertension is also known as high blood pressure. There are mainly two type of blood pressure i.e. systolic and another one is diastolic . The hypertension are categories into two parts that is primary hypertension and secondary hypertension. People are suffering from 3 stage during the condition of hypertension. There are following agents are used to treat hypertension like calcium channel blockers, ACE inhibitors, beta blocker, alpha + beta blockers these are commonly used.

  1. 1. HYPERTENSION Neda Fatima M.Pharm (Pharmacology) Amity University, Lucknow
  2. 2. DEFINATION Hypertension: Hypertension is also known as high blood pressure, in which the blood pressure in the artery is persistently elevated. Blood Pressure: The blood pressure is the pressure which is exerted by circulating blood on artery walls. Types of Blood Pressure There are mainly two types of blood pressure i.e. a. Systolic Blood Pressure b. Diastolic Blood Pressure a. Systolic Blood Pressure: It is specifically the maximum arterial pressure during contraction of heart. The systolic blood pressure (SBS) will be more than or equal of 140 mmHg. b. Diastolic Blood Pressure: Diastolic blood pressure, refers to the lowest pressure within the arterial blood stream due to expansion of heart. The diastolic blood pressure (DBP) will be more than or equal of 90 mmHg. Types of Hypertension: 1. Primary hypertension 2. Secondary hypertension
  3. 3. 1. Primary hypertension: Primary hypertension also known as essential hypertension or idiopathic hypertension) is the form of hypertension , it does not have a known cause approximately 90 to 95% of have primary hypertension. Etiology: • Age • Alcohol • Cigarette • Diabetes mellitus • Hyperlipidemia 2. Secondary hypertension: The secondary hypertension have a known cause approximately 5 to 10% Patient have secondary hypertension. Etiology: • Obstructive sleep apnea • Kidney problem • Adrenal gland tumors • Thyroid problems • Certain medication such as birth control pills
  4. 4. • Cold remedies • Decongestants • Over the counter pain relivers • Some prescription drugs • Illegal drugs such as Cocaine and Amphetamine Stages of Hypertension: Stages Systolic mmHg Diastolic mmHg Stage 1 130 – 139 80 – 89 Stage 2. 140 or higher 90 or higher Stage 3 Higher than 180 Higher than 120
  5. 5. Pathogenesis 1. Genetics: Single gene mutation may lead to the development of high blood pressure. 2. Autonomic nervous system: The two major hormone affect the autonomic nervous system i.e. epinephrine or non- epinephrine which affect the normal parameter in our such as heart rate, vesicular elasticity, vesicular resistance ,cardiac output etc. if any disturbance takes place in the autonomic nervous system which may increase the blood pressure. 3. Renin Angiotensin aldosterone system (RAAS): The Renin - Angiotensin – Aldosterone system is a hormone system within the body that is essential for the regulation of blood pressure and fluid balance. The angiotensin II act at hypothalamus to stimulate the sensation of thirst, resulting in an increase in fluid consumption. This helps to raise the circulating and in turn, blood pressure. 4. Endothelial dysfunctioning: The endothelium of the blood vessels help to produce more substances which affect the blood flow such as Nitric oxide and Endothelin help to regulate vesicular tone and blood pressure.
  6. 6. If any disturbance takes place in Endothelium then the secretion of Nitric oxide and Endothelin affect the blood pressure due to which the blood vessels unable to dilate. Complications: • Heart attack or stroke • Aneurysm • Heart failure • Dementia • Weak and narrow blood vessels in the kidney
  7. 7. Anti-Hypertensive The agents or drugs which are used in the treatment of hypertension is knowns as anti hypertensive drugs. Classification: 1. ACE Inhibitors Captopril, enalapril, lisinopril, perindopril, ramipril 2. Angiotensin antagonist: Losartan, irbesartan, candesartan 3. Calcium channel blocker: Verapamil, diltiazem, nifedipine, felodipine, amlodipine, lacidipine. 4. Diuretics: a. Thiazide: Hydrochlorothiazide, chlorthalidone, indapamide b. High ceiling: Furosemide c. Potassium sparing: Spironolactone, amiloride
  8. 8. 5. Beta – Adrenergic Blockers: Propranolol, metoprolol, atenolol 6. Alpha + beta adrenergic blockers: Labetalol, carvedilol 7. Alpha – adrenergic blockers: Prazosin, terazosin, phentolamine 8. Central sympatholytic: Clonidine, methyldopa 9. Vasodilators: Hydralazine, minoxidil sodium 1. Angiotensin converting enzyme: These drugs helps peoples with systolic heart failure, ACE inhibitors are a type of vasodilators, a drugs that widen blood vessels to lower blood pressure. Example: Captopril. Enalapril, lisinopril
  9. 9. Angiotensin Renin ACE inhibitors Angiotensin – I (Ag –I ) Block ACE enzyme Angiotensin –II (Ag- II) Aldosterone Vasoconstriction Na + and H2O retention B.P Blood pressure Blood volume Blood pressure
  10. 10. 2. Angiotensin - II receptor blocker: These may be an alternative for people who can not Tolerate ACE inhibitors. For example: Losartan, valsartan Angiotensin Angiotensin – I (Ag –I) Angiotensin II (Ag- II) Aldosterone Vasoconstriction
  11. 11. Na+ and H2O retention Blood volume Blood volume Blood pressure Blood pressure Calcium channel blockers: The calcium channel blocker reduces electrical conduction within the heart, decrease the force of contraction after the medication that relax the blood vessels and increase the supply of blood and oxygen to the heart while reducing the workload. For example: Amlodipine, diltiazem, felodipine, isradipine, verapamil.
  12. 12. a. Amlodipine: The amlodipine inhibits the transmembrane influx of calcium ions into vascular smooth muscles and cardiac muscles , reducing vesicular resistance. b. Diltiazem: It inhibits calcium movement across cell membrane of cardiac and smooth muscles causing vasodilation decrease heart rate and contractility, slow SA and AV nodes. c. Verapamil: Verapamil inhibits the calcium ion and possibly sodium ion influx through slow channels into conductive and contractile myocardial cell and vascular smooth muscle cells. Mechanism of action of calcium channel blocker: The calcium channel blocker bind to the calcium channel and inhibit the calcium channel . The inhibition of calcium channel cause no entry of calcium into the heart that leads to the dilation of arteries and decreases blood pressure. 4. Diuretics: Diuretics are the agents that increase the production of urine. Diuretics also called water pills which are commonly used in the treatment of high blood pressure. For example: a. Thiazide: Hydrochlorothiazide, chlorthalidone, indapamide
  13. 13. a. High ceiling: Furosemide b. Potassium sparing: Spironolactone, amiloride Mechanism of action of High ceiling (Loop diuretics)
  14. 14. Loop diuretic (high ceiling) block the Na + /k+ / 2Cl cotransporter on the thick ascending loop of inlet result in increase retention of Na+ / 2Cl. Mechanism of action of Thiazide diuretics:
  15. 15. Thiazide diuretics block the Na + / Cl- symport on the distal convoluted tubule ( site -3) result in increase the retention of Na+ / Cl- in the convoluted tubule. Mechanism of action of Potassium sparing:
  16. 16. Amiloride inhibit the Na+ channel on the collecting tubule that lead to increase the excretion of Na+ in the urine. 5. Mechanism of action of Beta – Adrenergic blockers: Beta blocker bind to the beta -1 on heart (SA node) and inhibits the beta 1 receptor that leads to decrease in the blood pressure. Beta blocker bind to the receptor in kidney (JG cell) and inhibit the release of renin causing no conversion to angiotensinogen into angiotensin I and decrease blood pressure. For example: Atenolol, metoprolol, propranolol etc. 6. Mechanism of action of alpha + beta blocker: Beta + alpha blocker bind to the beta + receptor and inhibit the alpha + beta receptors due to the inhibition of alpha + beta receptor that lead to decrease in blood pressure. For example: Carvedilol, labetalol etc.
  17. 17. 7. Alpha adrenergic blocker: The alpha blocker binds to the a – receptor on the blood vessels and inhibit alpha -1 receptor on the blood vessels that may lead to decrease the blood 8. Central sympatholytics: Centrally acting sympatholytics block sympathetic activity by binding to and activating alpha-2 adrenoceptors then they inhibit NE release. This decrease sympathetic outflow to the heart there by decreasing heart rate and contractility. Reduced sympathetic output to the blood vessels then the decrease arterial pressure, decrease vasodilation, decrease sympathetic vascular tone. For example: Methyldopa, clonidine etc. 9.Vasodilators: The vasodilators drugs relax the smooth muscles in blood vessels, which cause the vessels to dilate. The dilation of arterial (resistance) vessels leads to a reduction in systemic vesicular resistance which leads to fall in arterial blood pressure. For example: Hydralazine, minoxidil sodium
