How does Atenolol act?
Blocking beta 1-adrenergic receptors and lowering calcium ions concentration, the medication contributes to the lowering of the myocardial contractility, slows down the heart rate, conduction and excitability in the heart muscle. It also provides blood pressure lowering effect and decreases the minute volume of blood circulation.

However, in some patients, especially with congestive heart failure, it also increases the demand of oxygen by the myocardium and the drug is not suitable for them.
