____ ____ Mechanism: reduced renal blood flow causes kidneys to release renin. Renin stimulates function of angiotensin1 that converts rapidly to angiotensin 2. Angiotensin 2 constricts arterial blood vessels and stimulates adrenal cortex to release aldosterone, which causes sodium and salt retention by kidneys.

___ ___ blockers: induce dilation of arterial blood vessels.
______: cause renal excretion of electrolytes and water to reduce plasma volume.
_____ inhibitors: induce dilation of arterial blood vessels by inhibiting kidney's production of vasoconstricting hormone angiotensin. Causes retension of sodium and water which expands blood volume.
