Drug Name : Esmolol

Esmolol(Brevibloc) generic Esmolol blocks beta-1 receptors, which are present on the heart. This prevents the action of nerve chemicals adrenaline and noradrenaline on the heart. As a result, heart beats at a slower rate and with lesser force, and thus pumps out lesser blood into blood vessels. This action of esmolol reduces blood pressure in the hypertensive patients. Since esmolol slows heart rate, it treats tachycardia (fast heart rate), and irregular heart rate and rhythm (arrhythmia).
