ACE inhibitor

An ACE inhibitor is a drug that inhibits angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE), which is important to the formation of angiotensin II. While angiotensin II causes arteries to constrict and thereby raises blood pressure, ACE inhibitors lower blood pressure by inhibiting the formation of angiotensin II. Dilating the arteries not only lowers blood pressure, but also improves the pumping efficiency of a failing heart and thereby improves cardiac output in patients with heart failure. ACE inhibitors are therefore used for the management of high blood pressure and congestive heart failure.
