pharmacological and structural class
usually administered as salts
bradycardia - slowed heartbeat
ischemia - condition in which the heart is deprived of oxygen and toxic metabolites cannot be removed.
[Ca2+] very low in the cytosol.
Ca2+-channels allow movement of calcium ions away from myosin to control muscle contraction.
This drug would slow down the heart rate in order to decrease the oxygen demand. However, it is not desirable to lower the contractile force. Existing calcium-channel blocking drugs, while inducing bradycardia, also decrease the contractile force. This can lead to congestive heart failure.
reduce heart rate, maintain contractile force, increase duration of action
