ABSTRACT
A definition of the medical term metoprolol tartrate is presented. The term refers to a beta-1 selective beta blocker that lowers blood pressure, slows the heart rate, and reduces the heart's contractility but is less likely than nonselective beta blockers to cause wheezing. The definition is from the "Taber's Cyclopedic Medical Dictionary," published by F.A. Davis Co. The pronunciation of the term is also provided.
