Input rate as a major determinant of furosemide pharmacodynamics: influence of fluid replacement and hypoalbuminemia.


To investigate how the response to a bolus and an infusion of furosemide is modulated by the rate of fluid replacement and by hypoalbuminemia, rabbits received 5 mg/kg of furosemide as a bolus or infused over 60 min, whereas diuresis was replaced with 13, 121, or 238 ml/h NaCl 0.9%/glucose 5% (50:50). Natriuretic and diuretic efficiencies were greater with… (More)
