Anatomy of a nephron

Each of these sections has a main function in adjusting the amount and kind of solutes in the urine. Different drugs and diuretics work at distinct areas, some diuretics are potassium sparing while others (like Lasix/furosemide) are potassium wasting.

Furosemide aka Lasix most commonly used diuretic. Used to reduce body water content (usually by inducing urination) for 2 conditions: hypertension or edema. It's the #1 treatment for edema assoc c CHF (aka left-sided) also used for pts c cirrhosis or renal impairment. A loop-diuretic, it acts on the Loop of Henle in the kidney. As it's NOT a potassium-sparing diuretic,  most common adverse effect is electrolyte imbalance. Monitor lab and I/O. Lasix "lasts 6 hours" referring to duration of…

“ Furosemide aka Lasix is probably the most commonly used diuretic. It is used to reduce body water content (usually by inducing urination) for two conditions: hypertension or edema. It is the treatment for edema associated with congestive heart.

Diuretics and their sites of function. Ahhh, consider the kidney. Inspiration for the kidney bean and the kidney shaped pool. A wonderful little organ which one cannot live without. And yet, I can never remember what goes on in the Loop of Henle!

Loop diuretics are diuretics that act at the ascending loop of Henle in the kidney. They are primarily used in medicine to treat hypertension and edema often due to congestive heart failure or renal insufficiency.

Examples of loop diuretics include: Bumetanide (Bumex) Ethacrynic acid (Edecrin) Furosemide (Lasix) Torsemide (Demadex)
