Cardiovascular System

Reflect on pharmacodynamic and pharmacokinetic principles we discussed in week one,
allowing us to see how patient-specific variances can impact the treatment we choose and how efficacious it
will be for the patient. We will read about hypertension, hyperlipidemia, chronic stable angina, heart failure, and
anticoagulation disturbances. There is a lot of content to cover this week, so use your time wisely! Even though
there are no discussions this week, there is a lot to read and learn!
There are several prominent classes of medications that are commonly used to treat each of these disorders,
so I would advise you to focus on the pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic factors that separate each class
from others. When you approach your paper for this week, focus on patient-specific factors that will impact the
response and potential change in therapy.
