At least two channels exist (Braunwald 1982), namely, • A voltage-dependent channel blocked by calcium antagonists (see Chap. 8). • A receptor-operated channel blocked by beta-receptor blockers that therefore decrease calcium availability inside the myocardial cell. The negative inotropic effect of betablockers is probably based on this effect. Chapter 1 / Beta-Blockers 11 DOSAGE CONSIDERATIONS • The beta-blocking effect is manifest as a blockade of tachycardia when induced by exercise or isoproterenol.

Differences in the degree of absorption and variation in hepatic metabolism give rise to unpredictable plasma levels, but in addition the same blood level may elicit a different cardiovascular response in patients, depending on the individual’s sympathetic and vagal tone and the population of beta-receptors. • The dose of beta-blocker is titrated to achieve control of angina, hypertension, or arrhythmia. The dose is usually adjusted to achieve a heart rate of 50–60 per min and an exercise heart rate <110 per min.
