What is the secret of carvidilol’s superiority in CHF over other beta blockers ?
Beta blockers(BBs)  have become  key drugs in  management of CHF .It helps by blocking  toxic effects of inappropriately  elevated   catecholamine  , which is actually a  compensatory response(A fight and survival reaction )  from the sympathetic system  to a failing  heart . This process becomes a liability in the long run  as the  adrenergic receptors either down regulate or even promote apoptosis and cell death .Along with  RASS-ACE  it affects every cell in the body promoting neuro- humoral catabolic state. By trial and error  methodology w...

Contraindication for beta blocker – Cardiology MCQ
Contraindications to beta blocker includes all except: a) Bradycardia b) Hypotension c) Severe bronchospastic airway disease d) Compensated heart failure Correct answer: d) Compensated heart failure Earlier heart failure was considered a contraindication for beta blocker therapy. But now beta blockers are part of standard of care in heart failure as they have been shown to reduce mortality and morbidity in heart failure. Still it is not wise to initiate beta blocker therapy in decompensated heart failure on intravenous diuretics or inotropic support. Beta blockers are initiated after initial stabilization, that too in smal...

A trial of the beta-blocker bucindolol in patients with advanced chronic heart failure. N Engl J Med. 2001;344:1659 –1667].

Nebivolol and beta 3 mediated cardioprotection
: Beta 3 adrenoceptor stimulation has been shown to have cardioprotection mediated through nitric oxide synthase which produces nitric oxide. Nebivolol has higher beta 1 selectivity than bisoprolol, carvedilol and bucindolol. Nebivolol is a vasodilatory beta blocker useful in treatment of heart failure in addition to routine uses for beta blockers. The vasodilatory property of nebivolol is probably mediated through stimulation of beta 3 receptors which in turn leads to endothelial nitric oxide synthase (eNOS) activation resulting in the release of nitric oxide. This improves endothelial function and produces peripheral vas...
