ACE-I

20/04/2018

Angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors (ACE-Is) are a class of drug used after a heart attack and other causes of the heart muscle to weaken, to treat and prevent heart failure. They stop the body’s ability to produce angiotensin II, a hormone which causes blood vessels to contract, thus dilating blood vessels and increasing the supply of blood and oxygen to the heart.
