Captopril is an Angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitor used in the treatment of hypertension and congestive heart failure. Main action of angiotensin II is vasoconstriction. ACE inhibitors block angiotensin coverting enzyme activity.
Captopril causes both arteriolar and vasodilation which reduces after load and preload. Cardiac output is generally increased and heart rate is reduced.
