Deals with a study which assessed whether patients with decompensated congestive heart failure had altered absorption of oral furosemide. Methods used in the study; Results and discussion.

- Nephrocalcinosis in full-term infants receiving furosemide treatment for congestive heart failure: a study of the incidence and 2-year follow up. Saarela, T.; Lanning, P.; Koivisto, M.; Paavilainen, T. // European Journal of Pediatrics;1999, Vol. 158 Issue 8, p668
Abstract In order to study the incidence and course of nephrocalcinosis in full-term infants with congestive heart failure receiving long-term furosemide treatment, 36 such infants (median age 2.9 months, range 1.2-8.0) and 36 full-term control infants not receiving any diuretics (median age 3.4...
- Bumetanide and furosemide in heart failure. Brater, D. Craig; Day, Bart; Burdette, Ann; Anderson, Shirley // Kidney International;Aug1984, Vol. 26 Issue 2, p183
We assessed the handling of and response to oral bumetanide (1.0 and 2.0 mg) and to furosemide (40 and 80 mg) in 20 patients with stable, compensated congestive heart failure (CHF), comparing the two drugs and, in addition, examining differences from normal subjects. Bumetanide and furosemide...
- Low-Dose Rather than High-Dose Furosemide Should Be Used for Refractory CHF. // Kidney;Mar/Apr98, Vol. 7 Issue 2, p86
Discusses the abstract of the article 'Increased toxicity of high-dose furosemide versus low-dose dopamine in the treatment of refractory congestive heart failure,' by G. Cotter, J. Weissgarten et al, published in the 1997 issue of the 'Clinical Pharmacology & Therapeutics' journal.
- Intermittent haemodiafiltration in refractory congestive heart failure: BNP and balance of inflammatory cytokines. Libetta, Carmelo; Sepe, Vincenzo; Zucchi, Manuela; Pisacco, Patrizia; Cosmai, Laura; Meloni, Federica; Campana, Carlo; Rampino, Teresa; Monti, Cristina; Tavazzi, Luigi; Canton, Antonio Dal // Nephrology Dialysis Transplantation;Jul2007, Vol. 22 Issue 7, p2013
Background. Elevated plasma levels of cytokines have been associated with an increased risk of congestive heart failure (CHF) even in people without history of myocardial infarction. Here we have tested the hypothesis that effective removal of pro-inflammatory cytokines in patients with advanced...
- Effect of furosemide on free water excretion in edematous patients with hyponatremia. Schrier, Robert W.; Lehman, David; Zachfrlf, Barry; Earley, Laurence E. // Kidney International;Jan1973, Vol. 3 Issue 1, p30
The present study was undertaken to examine the effect of intravenous furosemide on urinary dilution in patients with hyponatremia associated with edema formation due to congestive heart failure, hepatic cirrhosis or nephrotic syndrome. Despite the evidence that a major tubular effect of...
- Perioperative Control of Serum Sodium for Liver Transplantation: Time for a More Aggressive Approach? Nozari, Ala; Saidi, Reza F. // Open Anesthesiology Journal;2010, Vol. 4, p20
The author reflects on the perioperative management of hyponatremia in patients undergoing orthotopic liver transplantation through administration of intravenous furosemide to cause a supranormal diuresis and allow intraoperative control of serum sodium levels. He asserts that furosemide...
- THE EFFECTS OF OSMOTIC DIURESIS AND VASOPRESSIN UPON THE DISTRIBUTION OF SODIUM, POTASSIUM AND UREA IN THE RAT KIDNEY. Cross, R. B. // Australian Journal of Experimental Biology & Medical Science;Aug1964, Vol. 42 Issue 4, p523
This article reports that the renal medullary counter current system is now widely accepted as being of fundamental importance in the production of a concentrated urine. Researchers showed that osmotic diuresis depleted the high concentrations of sodium usually found in the medulla. They were...
