ACE Inhibitor

ace-inhibitors

Definition: The acronym “ACE” represents “Angiotensin Converting Enzyme” and is an oral drug that blocks the action of an enzyme that causes the blood vessels to contract.

Example: ACE Inhibitors are often prescribed to treat people with high blood pressure and heart failure as it causes the hypertensive blood vessels to dilate rather than contract. This works to bring down the overall blood pressure.
