Session: Cardiac Pharmacology, Cardiac Surgery

Cardiac Pharmacology, Cardiac Surgery

Description:

Cardiovascular pharmacology deals with the drugs used for the treatment of cardiac diseases. The Cardiac Drugs are used to treat the heart conditions or its circulatory or the vascular system. The pharmaceutical industry has played an important role in advancing new medications for the treatment of cardiovascular disease, and certainly there are more significant benefits in order to treat patients. In this sub topic we have ACE-inhibitors, Sodium, potassium, calcium channel blockers, and Cardiac biomarkers. There are 6 associations and societies for Cardiac Therapeutic Agents in USA. 50 universities are working on Cardiac Therapeutic Agents. Recently new drug named Entresto (ARNI) is the combination of two compounds reduces the risk of cardiovascular death. As per 2021, Modern heart drug therapy includes “big six” medications such as:

  • Statins — to lower LDL cholesterol
  • Aspirin — to prevent blood clots
  • Clopidogrel — to prevent blood clots
  • Warfarin — to prevent blood clots
  • Beta-blockers — to treat heart attack
  • ACE inhibitors — to treat heart failure and low blood pressure

If a person had a heart attack, he/she had to undergo certain procedures to help survive from heart attack and diagnose the condition. If the treatment is not done immediately after a heart attack, many patients will need to undergo a Cardiac Surgery such as coronary angioplasty or coronary artery bypass graft surgery (CABG) to improve blood supply to the heart.
