Heart Attack and Angiotensin-Converting Enzyme (ACE) Inhibitors

Written by ColleenO.

A number of studies have shown that angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors are beneficial in reducing symptoms and prolonging life in patients with congestive heart failure (CHF). In the event of a heart attack, ACE inhibitors can be used to lower blood pressure and help lower mortality in people who sustain significant damage to their heart muscle.

Common ACE inhibitors include:

  • Enalapril (Vasotec)
  • Lisinopril (Zestril)
  • Quinapril (Accupril)
