As a Paramedic I use Nitroglycerin in heart patients to Vasodialate the blood vessels, thereby lowering blood pressure. This ability was discoverd many many years ago by miners working with Dynamite. However my form of nitro is non-explosive versus the nitro found in dynamite. What is the DIFFERENCE between the TWO versions? Added: Also how does Nitroglycerin cause Vasodilation. Does it inhibit the nerve receptors or what?
