Beta blockers in the treatment of hypertension

Norman M Kaplan

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

In the treatment of hypertension, beta blockers are effective, cause few bothersome side effects, and, with proper selection of patients, few serious side effects. All currently available beta blockers share the major sites of action (the heart, the peripheral vessels, the central nervous system, and the kidney), which affect the blood pressure. But they differ in a number of ways and have varying durations of action.
