what are the drugs involved in treatment of hypertension?
hypertension is an idiopathic condition where there is an increase in blood pressure cardiac output and peripheral vascular resistance. the contributory factors involved are increased blood volume due to high salt content, lipid profile, high glucose content and reabsorption due to hormones present just like vasopressin. which is typically aided with diuretics as an adjunct therapy, bloodglucose and blood lipid control. ANS pathways specifically sympathetic/ adrenergic pathways also activates adrenergic receptors such as alpha and beta and dopamine that stimulate vasoconstrictions which are typically aided with dilators like your nitrates(first aid) ARB CCB BB diuretics
tell me the concept behind electronegaivity what is the most and least electronegative element?
Electronegativity refers to the ability of an atom to attract shared electrons in a covalent bond. The higher the value of the electronegativity, the more strongly that element attracts the shared electrons. Electronegativity increases from bottom to top in groups, and increases from left to right across periods. most: flourine least: francium
