In this context, the clinician is particularly interested in the use of calcium antagonists to protect against the kidney in urolithiasis, in acute renal failure and during kidney transplantation.

Sep 19,  · Some calcium channel blockers have the added benefit of slowing your heart rate, which can further lower your blood pressure, relieve chest pain (angina) and control an irregular heartbeat.

Calcium channel blockers are also called calcium antagonists. Calcium channel blocking agents restrict the amount of calcium entering cardiac and smooth muscle cells by blocking voltage-gated calcium channels.

This causes blood vessels to relax and widen (vasodilate), improves oxygen supply to the heart, and lowers blood pressure. Some calcium channel blockers also slow the heart rate.

They are also designated as calcium entry blockers (CEBs), calcium blockers, calcium channel antagonists, calcium channel inhibitors (and in French anticalciques).

As this is reported in several chapters of this book, their main effect is a blockade of calcium entry into cells through voltage operated calcium channels (VOCCs).Brand: Birkhäuser Basel. 1 Physiological Significance of Calcium: Calcium Antagonism.- Physiological Significance of Calcium.- Action Potential and Cardiac Pacemaker Cells.- Excitation-Contraction Coupling in the Myocardium.- Action Potential in the Myocardial Cell.- Anatomy of the Myocardial Cell.- Cellular and Calcium antagonists book Calcium Movements.- Molecular Mechanism of Muscle.

Calcium channel blockers, calcium channel antagonists or calcium antagonists are a group of medications that disrupt the movement of calcium through calcium channels. Calcium channel blockers are used as antihypertensive drugs, i.e., as medications to decrease blood pressure in patients with hypertension.

CCBs are particularly effective against large vessel stiffness, one of the common causes of elevated systolic blood pressure in elderly patients. Calcium ATC code: C The book also includes important uses of Ca 2+ antagonists in novel areas of interest such as the gastrointestinal tract, renal protection and multi-drug resistance.

Calcium antagonists, also known as calcium channel blockers (CCBs), inhibit the influx of extracellular calcium across the myocardial and vascular smooth muscle cell membranes.

Calcium channels in vascular smooth muscle cell membranes are selective and allow a slow inward flow of calcium. Calcium channel blockers (CCBs), comprising two subclasses – dihydropyridines and non-dihydropyridines – have been for many years one of the mainstays of hypertension therapy.

Calcium channel blockers (CCBs) share a common mechanism of action. However, the manner in which they exert their pharmacological effects is different between 3rdrailphotography.com by: Newer calcium antagonists also may offer therapeutic benefits for migraine prevention, including isradipine and nicardipine.

Nifedipine is occasionally helpful but at times actually worsens headache because it is a strong vasodilator. Dosing regimens with calcium antagonists should start at a low dosage and escalate therapy every 2 weeks.

Abstract. 1 The Ca 2+ antagonists are a novel group of drugs useful in management of a variety of cardiac disorders.

They differ from one another in terms of their chemistry, tissue specificity and selectivity. As a group, however, they share the common property of slowing Ca 2+ entry through voltage-activated, ion-selective channels. Some of them exhibit other properties, including that of Cited by: Calcium channel blockers (CCBs) are a class of drugs that dilate the arteries, and are used for treating high blood pressure, abnormally rapid heart rhythms, pulmonary hypertension, Raynaud's syndrome, cardiomyopathy, and subarachnoid hemorrhage.

Calcium channel blockers also are prescribed for the prevention of migraine headaches and angina.
