    Details Below:
    Enalapril is an angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitor, which causes
    a decreased arterial and venous vasoconstriction and a decreased blood
    volume. ACE inhibitors are considered as first-line therapy in the management
    of heart failure because it has been shown that they reduce symptoms and
    improve prognosis. They are also used in hypertension as they reduce salt and
    water retention. The addition of enalapril to AB’s therapy was an important
    therapeutic intervention undertaken during hospitalisation. Before admission
    the patient had a deterioration in the heart failure condition and required
    further therapeutic intervention to correct progression of the disease. By
    choosing to include enalapril in AB’s therapy, the first-line management of
    congestive heart failure is now being followed.
