    • Treatments for CVD
      • Drug Treatment
        • Diuretics
          • increase volume of urine.
          • Lowers blood volume and pressure
          • muscle cramps, nausea, dizziness
        • Beta Blockers
          • Block response of heart to hormones
          • Less frequent and less powerful contrations
          • diabetes
        • ACE inhibitors
          • Block production of angiotensin which normally causes arterial constriction and rise in blood pressure
          • dizziness, impaired kidney function, cough
        • Statins
          • block liver enzyme that makes cholesterol so less is made
          • nausea, constipation, muscle aches
        • Anticoagulants
          • reduce risk of clot formation
        • Platelet Inhibitory Drugs
          • make platelets less sticky
          • Aspirin causes stomach bleeding
