Abstract

A significant number of industrial professionals and pharmacists have revealed that ivabradine is extremely suitable drug, which can be used for inhibiting sinus-node. This medicine has enough capability to reduce the risk of various cardiovascular diseases. Therefore, ivabradine is helpful for the governmental authorities and hospital administration to reduce the mortality and morbidity rates of cardiac conditions. During the presence of angina, this drug can be easily used for improving exercise capacity. Sinus tachycardia can be easily controlled with the help of this pharmaceutical agent. Conversely, this medicine is not associated with decreased mortality rates of coronary artery deisease. Therefore, it is extremely necessary for current investigators to identify advanced knowledge in relation with ivabradine.
