Atenolol is a cardioselective beta-1 adrenergic blocker possessing properties and potency similar to propranolol, but without a negative inotropic effect.
Atenolol is a synthetic isopropylamino-propanol derivative used as an antihypertensive, hypotensive and antiarrhythmic atenolol acts as a peripheral, cardioselective beta blocker specific for beta-1 adrenergic receptors, without intrinsic sympathomimetic effects. It reduces exercise heart rates and delays atrioventricular conduction, with overall oxygenrequirements decreasing.
