Answer

Beta-blockers

Inhibit chronotropic, inotropic, and vasodilatory responses to beta-adrenergic stimulation and slow AV nodal conduction.

Metoprolol (Lopressor, Toprol XL)

Selective beta1-adrenergic receptor blocker that decreases automaticity of contractions. During IV administration, carefully monitor BP, heart rate, and ECG.

Atenolol (Tenormin)

Selectively blocks beta1-receptors with little or no effect on beta2 types.
