Antihypertensive and Hemodynamic Properties of the New Beta Adrenergic Blocking Agent Timolol
In this article, Conway, Franciosa, and Freis reported on timolol, a new beta adrenergic blocking agent that slows the heart
rate and reduces pumping volume. They noted that timolol possessed similar antihypertensive activity as propranolol, another
beta-blocker, however it did not sustain a similar lowering effect. Because of this, and the small nature of their study,
the researchers suggested that the effectiveness of timolol warranted further study.
