INTRODUCTIONCardiovascular diseases refer to the situations in which blood vessels get narrowed orblocked which can result in heart attack, stroke and chest pain. It is required that effective carepractices should be undertaken to treat the patients suffering from cardiac illness. Nursingconfederation, care and management are three important terms that forms a complete aidspecialisation in patient support and administration (Wilson and et. al, 2016)In this report,critical discussion is made on the above-mentioned factors for the cardiac diligent which arebeing treated with Angiotensin-converting enzymes (ACE) inhibitors. Further, the completion ofthis study will help in understanding the role of nursing care and management in cardiovasculardisease. Besides this, the importance of using confederation in the healthcare practices is alsodiscussed in the present work.MAIN BODYACE inhibitors are very important medicines that are used in case of heart failures. Themain functions played by this is to relax blood vessels and reduce blood pressure to amend theblood flow. This medicine simplifies the role of heart by enhancing pumping ability of heartwhich renders blood to the body with ease. Some most common inhibitors include Captopril,Ramipril, Enalapril, etc. These inhibitors work by blocking the actions of protein that results innarrowing of blood vessels. Further, these medicines help in lowering blood pressure. They arewidely used because of their property to alleviate heart failure symptom such as fluid build-upand swelling (Gill and et. al, 2017).However, heart patients who have bad reaction, highpotassium levels in blood, low blood pressure, pregnant and kidney problems should avoid usingACE inhibitors as they worsen the situation. In addition to this, there are some side-effects of thismedicine such as dry cough, allergic reactions, etc. Thus, it is necessary to possess propernursing care and management of the cardiac patients who are being treated with this medicine.Rather than aiding in heart failures, these inhibitors are also useful in decreasing excessive waterconsumption. The mechanism of action of these inhibitors consists of reducing the activity ofrenin angiotensin aldosterone system abbreviated as RAAS (Fry and et. al, 2017). It's actionleads to leave behind angiotensin a residue that is hazardous for heart and the action of theinhibitors is to block the conversion of renin in angiotensin.1
