The purpose of this study was to determine which urine electrolytes should be measured to confirm that the extracellular fluid (ECF) volume is depleted. ECF volume contraction was induced by furosemide administration to rats consuming an electrolyte-free diet. An external potassium balance was achieved by replacing potassium losses with KHCO3 and KCl so… CONTINUE READING
