C ONSERVATIVE management of anuria has in many instances prolonged life.― This involves the correction of water and electrolyte deficits and the utilization of the protein-sparing effects of glucose to decrease the rate of tissue catabolism. These measures attempt to preserve the integrity of the body fluids, thus retarding the accumu@ lation of toxic substances, i.e., potassium, and reducing the risk of water intoxication and possible pulmonary edema which often results from vigorous fluid… CONTINUE READING
