Esmolol is β andrenoceptor blocker that selectively blocks β-1 receptors but at higher dose can also block β-2 receptors. Its β-1 receptor blocking selectivity prevents Esmolol from side effects that are associated with β-2 receptor blocking. Esmolol lowers blood pressure in hypertensive patient but don’t reduce blood pressure in normal conditions. Due to its β-1 selectivity it doesn’t produce bronhcoconstriction.

Esmolol has little effect on peripheral resistance, sugar metabolism and pulmonary functions.
