The organotropic group includes numerous drugs with variously directed effects, which have a predominant or highly selective effect on the functions of the executive systems (cardiovascular, bronchopulmonary, gastrointestinal, urogenital, hematopoietic, hemocoagulation, etc.).
The action of various groups of drugs is aimed at correcting the impaired functions of tissues and organs and can be both stimulating and depressing in nature. In some cases, they can affect several organs and systems (respiratory stimulants, cardiac glycosides, calcium channel blockers, etc.). Organotropic drugs are of exceptional importance for therapeutic practice, including in the provision of emergency care (for example, cardiovascular drugs: antiarrhythmics, vasodilators, hypertensive drugs, nitrates, respiratory stimulants, and many others).
