This Concept Map, created with IHMC CmapTools, has information related to: Hypertension, Hypertension CASE 2: Patient characteristics 57 years old African American male, Dosage ???? 2.5 mg/day if used with diuretic, Hypertension CASE 2: Patient characteristics computer programmer at an office (prolonged sitting), Blocking Angiotensin II Receptor Preventing Vasoconstriction, Na, K, and Cl excretion Cause Vasodilation, Diuretics ???? Loop, Counseling ???? can cause nausea/dizziness, Vasoconstriction Causing Decreased Blood Pressure, Physiology ???? High sympathetic Outflow, High sympathetic Outflow Increased systemic resistance Inappropriately High Renin Release and Abnormal Salt/Water Handling, Antagonist at aldosterone receptor Acts as an K-sparing, Increased Na and Cl excretion Causes vasodilation, Hypertension CASE 2: Patient characteristics current medications: enalapril HCTZ insulin metformin, Hypertension Treatment Options ACE-I, Vasoconstriction Causes Decreased blood pressure, Diuretics ???? K-sparing, ACE Inhibitor Used to Treat Hypertension, Drug Pharmacological Mechanism Patient's current medications Enalapril, Drug Pharmacological Mechanism Patient's current medications Insulin, High sympathetic Outflow Increased large arterial stiffness Inappropriately High Renin Release and Abnormal Salt/Water Handling
