Term Definition
ACE Inhibitors

A group of medications that cardiologists use to help relax blood vessels and make it easier for the heart to circulate blood around the body. One of the main side effects of ACE inhibitors is possible lowering of blood pressure. Some common ACE inhibitors used in the United States are enalapril (Vasotec), lisinopril (Zestril), and perindopril (Aceon), but there are also many other options your child’s cardiologist may choose. ACE inhibitors are also used to treat other conditions not related to the heart.
