It is sometimes useful also as an adjunct in the treatment of tonic-clonic, myoclonic, and atonic seizures, particularly in women whose seizures occur or are exacerbated at specific times in the menstrual cycle. However, its usefulness is transient often because of rapid development of tolerance. Its antiepileptic effect may be due to its inhibitory effect on brain carbonic anhydrase, which leads to an increased transneuronal chloride gradient, increased chloride current, and increased inhibition. (From Smith and Reynard, Textbook of Pharmacology, 1991, p337)
Laboratory tests used to evaluate how well the kidneys are working through examination of blood and urine.
A BLOOD PRESSURE regulating system of interacting components that include RENIN; ANGIOTENSINOGEN; ANGIOTENSIN CONVERTING ENZYME; ANGIOTENSIN I; ANGIOTENSIN II; and angiotensinase. Renin, an enzyme produced in the kidney, acts on angiotensinogen, an alpha-2 globulin produced by the liver, forming ANGIOTENSIN I. Angiotensin-converting enzyme, contained in the lung, acts on angiotensin I in the plasma converting it to ANGIOTENSIN II, an extremely powerful vasoconstrictor. Angiotensin II causes contraction of the arteriolar and renal VASCULAR SMOOTH MUSCLE, leading to retention of salt and water in the KIDNEY and increased arterial blood pressure. In addition, angiotensin II stimulates the release of ALDOSTERONE from the ADRENAL CORTEX, which in turn also increases salt and water retention in the kidney. Angiotensin-converting enzyme also breaks down BRADYKININ, a powerful vasodilator and component of the KALLIKREIN-KININ SYSTEM.
A condition due to decreased dietary intake of potassium, as in starvation or failure to administer in intravenous solutions, or to gastrointestinal loss in diarrhea, chronic laxative abuse, vomiting, gastric suction, or bowel diversion. Severe potassium deficiency may produce muscular weakness and lead to paralysis and respiratory failure. Muscular malfunction may result in hypoventilation, paralytic ileus, hypotension, muscle twitches, tetany, and rhabomyolysis. Nephropathy from potassium deficit impairs the concentrating mechanism, producing POLYURIA and decreased maximal urinary concentrating ability with secondary POLYDIPSIA. (Merck Manual, 16th ed)

QT dispersion in patients with chronic heart failure: beta blockers are associated with a reduction in QT dispersion. (1/2149)

OBJECTIVE: To compare QT dispersion in patients with impaired left ventricular systolic function and in matched control patients with normal left ventricular systolic function. DESIGN: A retrospective, case-control study with controls matched 4:1 for age, sex, previous myocardial infarction, and diuretic and beta blocker treatment. SETTING: A regional cardiology centre and a university teaching hospital. PATIENTS: 25 patients with impaired left ventricular systolic function and 100 patients with normal left ventricular systolic function. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: QT and QTc dispersion measured by three methods: the difference between maximum and minimum QT and QTc intervals, the standard deviation of QT and QTc intervals, and the "lead adjusted" QT and QTc dispersion. RESULTS: All measures of QT/QTc dispersion were closely interrelated (r values 0.86 to 0.99; all p < 0.001). All measures of QT and QTc dispersion were significantly increased in the patients with impaired left ventricular systolic function v controls (p < 0.001): 71.9 (6.5) (mean (SEM)) v 46.9 (1.7) ms for QT dispersion, and 83.6 (7.6) v 54.3 (2.1) ms(-1-2) for QTc dispersion. All six dispersion parameters were reduced in patients taking beta blockers (p < 0.05), regardless of whether left ventricular function was normal or impaired-by 9.4 (4.6) ms for QT dispersion (p < 0.05) and by 13.8 (6. 5) ms(-1-2) for QTc dispersion (p = 0.01). CONCLUSIONS: QT and QTc dispersion are increased in patients with systolic heart failure in comparison with matched controls, regardless of the method of measurement and independently of possible confounding factors. beta Blockers are associated with a reduction in both QT and QTc dispersion, raising the possibility that a reduction in dispersion of ventricular repolarisation may be an important antiarrhythmic mechanism of beta blockade.  (+info)

Pharmacological studies on root bark of mulberry tree (Morus alba L.) (2/2149)

Pharmacological studies were done on the root bark of mulberry tree and pharmacological effects were compared with the clinical effects of "Sohakuhi" in Chinese medicine. n-Butanol- and water-soluble fractions of mulberry root had similar effects except for those on the cadiovascular system. Both fractions showed cathartic, analgesic, diuretic, antitussive, antiedema, sedative, anticonvulsant, and hypotensive actions in mice, rats, guinea pigs and dogs. There appears to be a correlation between the experimental pharmacological results and the clinical applications of mulberry root found in the literature on Chinese medicine.  (+info)

Acetylcholine-induced membrane potential changes in endothelial cells of rabbit aortic valve. (3/2149)

1. Using a microelectrode technique, acetylcholine (ACh)-induced membrane potential changes were characterized using various types of inhibitors of K+ and Cl- channels in rabbit aortic valve endothelial cells (RAVEC). 2. ACh produced transient then sustained membrane hyperpolarizations. Withdrawal of ACh evoked a transient depolarization. 3. High K+ blocked and low K+ potentiated the two ACh-induced hyperpolarizations. Charybdotoxin (ChTX) attenuated the ACh-induced transient and sustained hyperpolarizations; apamin inhibited only the sustained hyperpolarization. In the combined presence of ChTX and apamin, ACh produced a depolarization. 4. In Ca2+-free solution or in the presence of Co2+ or Ni2+, ACh produced a transient hyperpolarization followed by a depolarization. In BAPTA-AM-treated cells, ACh produced only a depolarization. 5. A low concentration of A23187 attenuated the ACh-induced transient, but not the sustained, hyperpolarization. In the presence of cyclopiazonic acid, the hyperpolarization induced by ACh was maintained after ACh removal; this maintained hyperpolarization was blocked by Co2+. 6. Both NPPB and hypertonic solution inhibited the membrane depolarization seen after ACh washout. Bumetanide also attenuated this depolarization. 7. It is concluded that in RAVEC, ACh produces a two-component hyperpolarization followed by a depolarization. It is suggested that ACh-induced Ca2+ release from the storage sites causes a transient hyperpolarization due to activation of ChTX-sensitive K+ channels and that ACh-activated Ca2+ influx causes a sustained hyperpolarization by activating both ChTX- and apamin-sensitive K+ channels. Both volume-sensitive Cl- channels and the Na+-K+-Cl- cotransporter probably contribute to the ACh-induced depolarization.  (+info)

Modulation of chloride, potassium and bicarbonate transport by muscarinic receptors in a human adenocarcinoma cell line. (4/2149)

1. Short-circuit current (I(SC)) responses to carbachol (CCh) were investigated in Colony 1 epithelia, a subpopulation of the HCA-7 adenocarcinoma cell line. In Krebs-Henseleit (KH) buffer, CCh responses consisted of three I(SC) components: an unusual rapid decrease (the 10 s spike) followed by an upward spike at 30 s and a slower transient increase (the 2 min peak). This response was not potentiated by forskolin; rather, CCh inhibited cyclic AMP-stimulated I(SC). 2. In HCO3- free buffer, the decrease in forskolin-elevated I(SC) after CCh was reduced, although the interactions between CCh and forskolin remained at best additive rather than synergistic. When Cl- anions were replaced by gluconate, both Ca2+- and cyclic AMP-mediated electrogenic responses were significantly inhibited. 3. Basolateral Ba2+ (1-10 mM) and 293B (10 microM) selectively inhibited forskolin stimulation of I(SC), without altering the effects of CCh. Under Ba2+- or 293B-treated conditions, CCh responses were potentiated by pretreatment with forskolin. 4. Basolateral charybdotoxin (50 nM) significantly increased the size of the 10 s spike of CCh responses in both KH and HCO3- free medium, without affecting the 2 min peak. The enhanced 10 s spike was inhibited by prior addition of 5 mM apical Ba2+. Charybdotoxin did not affect forskolin responses. 5. In epithelial layers prestimulated with forskolin, the muscarinic antagonists atropine and 4-diphenylacetoxy-N-methylpiperidine methiodide (4-DAMP, both at 100 nM) abolished subsequent 10 microM CCh responses. Following addition of p-fluoro hexahydro-sila-difenidol (pF-HHSiD, 10 microM) or pirenzepine (1 microM), qualitative changes in the CCh response time-profile also indicated a rightward shift of the agonist concentration-response curve; however, 1 microM gallamine had no effect. These results suggest that a single M3-like receptor subtype mediates the secretory response to CCh. 6. It is concluded that CCh and forskolin activate discrete populations of basolateral K+ channels gated by either Ca2+ or cyclic AMP, but that the Cl- permeability of the apical membrane may limit their combined effects on electrogenic Cl- secretion. In addition, CCh activates a Ba2+-sensitive apical K+ conductance leading to electrogenic K+ transport. Both agents may also modulate HCO3- secretion through a mechanism at least partially dependent on carbonic anhydrase.  (+info)

Formal analysis of electrogenic sodium, potassium, chloride and bicarbonate transport in mouse colon epithelium. (5/2149)

1. The mammalian colonic epithelium carries out a number of different transporting activities simultaneously, of which more than one is increased following activation with a single agonist. These separate activities can be quantified by solving a set of equations describing these activities, provided some of the dependent variables can be eliminated. Using variations in the experimental conditions, blocking drugs and comparing wild type tissues with those from transgenic animals this has been achieved for electrogenic ion transporting activity of the mouse colon. 2. Basal activity and that following activation with forskolin was measured by short circuit current in isolated mouse colonic epithelia from normal and cystic fibrosis (CF) mice. 3. Using amiloride it is shown that CF colons show increased electrogenic sodium absorption compared to wild type tissues. CF mice had elevated plasma aldosterone, which may be responsible for part or all of the increased sodium absorbtion in CF colons. 4. The derived values for electrogenic chloride secretion and for electrogenic potassium secretion were increased by 13 and 3 fold respectively by forskolin, compared to basal state values for these processes. 5. The loop diuretic, frusemide, completely inhibited electrogenic potassium secretion, but apparently only partially inhibited electrogenic chloride secretion. However, use of bicarbonate-free solutions and acetazolamide reduced the frusemide-resistant current, suggesting that electrogenic bicarbonate secretion accounts for the frusemide-resistant current. 6. It is argued that the use of tissues from transgenic animals is an important adjunct to pharmacological analysis, especially where effects in tissues result in the activation of more than one sort of response.  (+info)

Feedback inhibition of rat amiloride-sensitive epithelial sodium channels expressed in Xenopus laevis oocytes. (6/2149)

1. Regulation of the amiloride-sensitive epithelial sodium channel (ENaC) is essential for the control of body sodium homeostasis. The downregulation of the activity of this Na+ channel that occurs when the intracellular Na+ concentration ([Na+]i) is increased is known as feedback inhibition. Although intracellular Na+ is the trigger for this phenomenon, its cellular and molecular mediators are unknown. 2. We used the 'cut-open oocyte' technique to control the composition of the intracellular milieu of Xenopus oocytes expressing rat ENaCs to enable us to test several factors potentially involved in feedback inhibition. 3. The effects of perfusion of the intracellular space were demonstrated by an electromicrographic study and the time course of the intracellular solution exchange was established by observing the effect of intracellular pH: a decrease from pH 7.4 to 6.5 reduced the amiloride-sensitive current by about 40 % within 2 min. 4. Feedback inhibition was observed in non-perfused oocytes when Na+ entry induced a large increase in [Na+]i. Intracellular perfusion prevented feedback regulation even though the [Na+]i was allowed to increase to values above 50 mM. 5. No effects on the amiloride-sensitive current were observed after changes in the concentration of Na+ (from 1 to 50 mM), Ca2+ (from 10 to 1000 nM) or ATP (from nominally free to 1 or 5 mM) in the intracellular perfusate. 6. We conclude that feedback inhibition requires intracellular factors that can be removed by intracellular perfusion. Although a rise in [Na+]i may be the trigger for the feedback inhibition of the ENaC, this effect is not mediated by a direct effect of Na+, Ca2+ or ATP on the ENaC protein.  (+info)

Isosmotic modulation of Ca2+-regulated exocytosis in guinea-pig antral mucous cells: role of cell volume. (7/2149)

1. Exocytotic events and changes of cell volume in mucous cells from guinea-pig antrum were examined by video-enhanced optical microscopy. 2. Acetylcholine (ACh) evoked exocytotic events following cell shrinkage, the frequency and extent of which depended on the ACh concentration. ACh actions were mimicked by ionomycin and thapsigargin, and inhibited by Ca2+-free solution and Ca2+ channel blockers (Ni2+, Cd2+ and nifedipine). Application of 100 microM W-7, a calmodulin inhibitor, also inhibited the ACh-induced exocytotic events. These results indicate that ACh actions are mediated by intracellular Ca2+ concentration ([Ca2+]i) in antral mucous cells. 3. The effects of ion channel blockers on exocytotic events and cell shrinkage evoked by ACh were examined. Inhibition of KCl release (quinine, Ba2+, NPPB or KCl solution) suppressed both the exocytotic events and cell shrinkage evoked by ACh. 4. Bumetanide (inhibition of NaCl entry) or Cl--free solution (increasing Cl- release and inhibition of NaCl entry) evoked exocytotic events following cell shrinkage in unstimulated antral mucous cells and caused further cell shrinkage and increases in the frequency of exocytotic events in ACh-stimulated cells. However, Cl--free solution did not evoke exocytotic events in unstimulated cells in the absence of extracellular Ca2+, although cell shrinkage occurred. 5. To examine the effects of cell volume on ACh-evoked exocytosis, the cell volume was altered by increasing the extracellular K+ concentration. The results showed that cell shrinkage increases the frequency of ACh-evoked exocytotic events and cell swelling decreases them. 6. Osmotic shrinkage or swelling caused the frequency of ACh-evoked exocytotic events to increase. This suggests that the effects of cell volume on ACh-evoked exocytosis under anisosmotic conditions may not be the same as those under isosmotic conditions. 7. In antral mucous cells, Ca2+-regulated exocytosis is modulated by cell shrinkage under isosmotic conditions.  (+info)

Study on propionyl-L-carnitine in chronic heart failure. (8/2149)

AIMS: In patients with chronic heart failure, fatigue is independent of haemodynamic and neuroendocrine changes and possibly may be due to impaired muscle metabolism. Propionyl-L-carnitine, a carnitine derivative, was shown in previous studies to improve muscle metabolism. The objective of this study was to evaluate the effect of propionyl-L-carnitine on exercise capacity in mild moderate chronic heart failure patients, treated with ACE inhibitors and diuretics. METHODS AND RESULTS: This was a phase III, double-blind, randomized, parallel, multicentre study. The primary objective was the evaluation of the effect of propionyl-L-carnitine vs placebo on maximum exercise duration using a bicycle exercise test. The primary analysis performed in the intention-to-treat population (271 and 266 patients in propionyl-L-carnitine and placebo), showed no statistically significant difference between treatments. A difference of 15 s in favour of propionyl-L-carnitine was observed in the completer/complier population (P=0.092). An a priori specified subgroup analysis on patients stratified by baseline maximum exercise duration showed a trend of improvement in propionyl-L-carnitine patients with shorter maximum exercise duration. A non a priori specified analysis in patients stratified by ejection fraction (< or = 30% vs 30-40%), showed a statistically significant difference in maximum exercise duration in favour of propionyl-L-carnitine in those patients with a higher ejection fraction (40 s, P<0.01). There were no safety issues. CONCLUSION: The study fails to meet the primary objective, but confirms the good safety profile of propionyl-L-carnitine. An exploratory non-prespecified analysis suggests that propionyl-L-carnitine improves exercise capacity in patients with preserved cardiac function. This hypothesis needs to be confirmed by a specific tailored study.  (+info)

Diuretic drugs usually improve edema when used judiciously. Some patients, however, become resistant to their effects. Diuretic resistance may result from dietary indiscretion, poor compliance, impaired bioavailability, impaired diuretic secretion into the lumen of the renal tubule, or because other drugs interfere with diuretic activity. When easily treatable causes of diuretic resistance have been excluded, resistance often reflects the intensity of the stimuli to sodium retention. Recent experimental work has indicated ways in which the kidney adapts to chronic diuretic treatment and has indicated how these adaptations may limit diuretic effectiveness. First, nephron segments downstream from the site of diuretic action increase sodium-chloride (NaCl) reabsorption because the delivered NaCl load increases. Second, diuretic-induced contraction of the extracellular fluid volume stimulates kidney tubules to retain NaCl until the next dose of diuretic is administered. Third, kidney tubules ...

The causes of diuretic resistance include poor adherence to drug therapy or dietary sodium restriction, pharmacokinetic issues, and compensatory increases in sodium reabsorption in nephron sites that are not blocked by the diuretic. To illustrate the pathophysiology and management of diuretic resistance, we describe a patient with nephrotic syndrome. This patient presented with generalized pitting edema and weight gain despite the use of oral loop diuretics. Nephrotic syndrome may cause mucosal edema of the intestine, limiting the absorption of diuretics. In addition, the patients kidney function had deteriorated, impairing the tubular secretion of diuretics. He was admitted for intravenous loop diuretic treatment. However, this was ineffective, ...
Background-Rather than the absolute dose of diuretic or urine output, the primary signal of interest when evaluating diuretic responsiveness is the efficiency with which the kidneys can produce urine after a given dose of diuretic. As a result, we hypothesized that a metric of diuretic efficiency (DE) would capture distinct prognostic information beyond that of raw fluid output or diuretic dose. Methods and Results-We independently analyzed two cohorts: 1) consecutive admissions at the University of Pennsylvania (Penn) with a primary discharge diagnosis of HF (n=657) and 2) patients in the ESCAPE dataset (n=390). DE was estimated as the net fluid output produced per 40 mg of furosemide equivalents, then dichotomized into high vs. low DE based on the median value. There was only a moderate correlation between DE and both the IV diuretic dose and net fluid output (r2 ≤ 0.26 for all comparisons), indicating that the diuretic efficiency was describing unique information. With the exception of ...
Administration of IV furosemide to patients with ADHF typically results in a prompt diuretic effect (within 30 minutes) that peaks at 1.5 hours. This effect leads to a decrease in ventricular filling pressures and improvement in symptoms in the majority of patients with ADHF. This observation has been confirmed in the placebo groups of the Value of Endothelin Receptor Inhibition with Tezosentan in Acute Heart Failure Studies and the Efficacy of Vasopressin Antagonism in Heart Failure Outcome Study with Tolvaptan, in which treatment based primarily on loop diuretics was associated with rapid and substantial improvement of dyspnea.29,30. Despite this clinical efficacy, substantial questions remain about how to best use diuretics to treat volume overload in patients with heart failure. One major unanswered issue is the most appropriate dosing strategy for loop diuretics in ADHF. There are almost no data evaluating the relationship between diuretic dose and diuretic efficacy in ADHF. In the ...
1. The pressor role of renin stimulated by chronic diuretic therapy has been assessed in 31 patients with essential hypertension by infusing the angiotensin II antagonist, saralasin, immediately before and at the end of 2 weeks treatment with the diuretic, chlorthalidone.. 2. Under diuretic therapy the change in blood pressure caused by saralasin was found to be correlated to plasma renin activity values, in such a way that small pressor responses were again observed in patients whose renin was mildly stimulated by the diuretic, whereas a marked depressor response occurred in patients whose renin was markedly increased.. 3. On the other hand, the hypotensive effect of chlorthalidone was correlated to values of plasma renin activity under diuretic therapy in an opposite direction: indeed little or no decrease and sometimes an increase in blood pressure were observed in patients with marked renin activation by diuretic therapy.. 4. It is concluded that stimulation of renin release by chronic ...

Aim. This study was aimed to examine the effect of intravenous diuretic therapy hospitalization of people with heart failure patients.Background. Heart failure is a progressive disease with a long term hospital admission; while having a standardized protocol can lead to a reduction in hospital costs and adverse effects of hospitalized days.Method. This clinical trial (without control group) was conducted on 111 heart failure patients who received intravenous diuretic therapy (in 6 hours sessions) for at least one year in heart failure ward. This treatment was performed once a week in the first month, once in two weeks in the second to sixth month and once in month in the 7th to 12th month. During the treatment, patients were given training on nutrition, drug regimen and lifestyle modification. Outcomes included urine output, weight loss, hypokalemia, worsening of renal function, hospitalization and mortality rate.Findings. The mean age of patients was 58.88±16.33. The minimum dose of prescribed
TY - JOUR. T1 - Effects of loop diuretics on ion transport by dog tracheal epithelium.. AU - Widdicombe, J. H.. AU - Nathanson, I. T.. AU - Highland, E.. PY - 1983/11. Y1 - 1983/11. N2 - The loop diuretics MK-196, bumetanide, piretanide, and furosemide are all potent inhibitors of Cl transport by the dogs tracheal epithelium. In short-circuited tissues, the drugs caused significant decreases in both unidirectional Cl fluxes and in the net flux of Cl toward the lumen; the change in net Cl flux was not significantly different from the change in short-circuit current. The drugs had no effect on active Na absorption. All drugs caused a significant fall in tissue conductance. All drugs, except MK-196, were more potent from the serosal bath; MK-196 was equipotent from either side of the tissue. In experiments with isolated cells, the diuretics caused no significant changes in intracellular Na and K concentrations, a fall in intracellular Cl concentration, and approximately equal falls in Na and ...
Evaluation of the Diuretic Activity of Aqueous and 80% Methanol Extracts of Croton macrostachyus(Euphorbiaceae) Leaves in Saline-Loaded Rats
The whole plant, Pergularia daemia (Family: Asclepediaceae), was extracted with 50% alcohol and a fresh batch of the plant material was successively extracted with petroleum ether, ethyl acetate and n-butanol to determine its diuretic activity. The diuretic activity of the different extracts at a dose of 400 mg/Kg was assessed orally in rats with furosemide as a standard drug using Lipschitzs test. All extracts except the petroleum ether extract showed significant increase (p | 0.001) in urine output. Urinary electrolyte excretion was also affected by the extracts: the alcoholic, ethyl acetate and n-butanol extract caused an increase in the urinary excretion of sodium and potassium ions. These findings suggest that among the mentioned extracts, ethanolic has the maximum diuretic activity followed by n-butanol extract.

As mentioned, loop diuretics act at the level of the ascending henle and inhibit the Na2ClK symporter. This segment of the nephron is responsible for resorbing roughly 25% of the tubular salt and distal segments have limited reserve to compensatorily increase sodium resorption. As a consequence, loop diuretics are able to result in massive amounts of Na+ and Cl- diuresis. Because water osmotically follows this diuresed sodium, loop diuretics are highly effective at reducing extracellular volume. Consequently, they are typically the go-to drug in settings of volume overload ...

There is no strong evidence of benefit from routine use of loop diuretics in preterm babies at risk of, or with, chronic lung disease. Lung disease in babies born early (preterm) is often complicated with excess of water. Medications that reduce body water (diuretics) might help the baby recover from lung disease. The review analysed the effects of diuretics working on the deep part of the small kidney tubes (loop diuretics). The review of trials found that diuretics, given from a single dose to one weeks treatment, inconsistently improved lung function and oxygen levels in the blood. There was not enough evidence to show any improvement in long-term outcome.. ...

Loop diuretics are drugs which treat edema and hypertension resulting from heart disease and kidney failure. The side effects of loop diuretics include low blood volume and electrolyte depletion. The target of loop diuretics is the Loop of Henle region of the nephron.
Intravenous loop diuretics are a cornerstone of therapy in acutely decompensated heart failure (ADHF). We sought to determine if there are any differences in clinical outcomes between intravenous bolus and continuous infusion of loop diuretics. Subjects with ADHF within 12 hours of hospital admission were randomly assigned to continuous infusion or twice daily bolus therapy with furosemide. There were three co-primary endpoints assessed from admission to discharge: the mean paired changes in serum creatinine, estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR), and reduction in B-type natriuretic peptide (BNP). Secondary endpoints included the rate of acute kidney injury (AKI), change in body weight and six months follow-up evaluation after discharge. A total of 43 received a continuous infusion and 39 were assigned to bolus treatment. At discharge, the mean change in serum creatinine was higher (+0.8 ± 0.4 versus -0.8 ± 0.3 mg/dl P |0.01), and eGFR was lower (-9 ± 7 versus +5 ± 6 ml/min/1.73 m2P |0.05) in

Swelling caused by excess fluid in the bodys tissues is known as edema. Mild edema often goes away on its own, but some cases need to be treated with diuretics.. Fluid retention can stem from many different medical conditions and some drugs. Anyone who is thinking of using diuretics to get rid of extra fluid should discuss the possible causes of fluid retention with a doctor first.. Diuretics can be helpful for people with kidney disease whose kidneys cannot filter potassium. This can cause a buildup that leads to serious health issues.. Diuretics can also alter the bodys levels of other important minerals such as magnesium.. Sodium, potassium, and magnesium levels must be checked frequently when using diuretics. Kidney function and blood pressure also need regular testing regularly.. ...
Washington, DC: Data from the Acute Decompensated Heart Failure National Registry (ADHERE) demonstrating an association between the use of high dose IV loop diuretics and adverse outcomes for patients with acute decompensated heart failure (ADHF) was presented as a poster at HFSA 2007 by Dr. Frank Peacock, Vice Chief, Department of Emergency Medicine, The Cleveland Clinic, for coauthors Drs. Maria R Costanzo, Teresa De Marco, Charles Emerman, and Margarita Lopatin, MS. ADHERE (http://www.adhereregistry.com) was initiated in October 2001, and for purposes of this analysis, all records from October 2001 through February 2005 were reviewed. Records for patients on chronic renal dialysis, patients who received IV vasoactive therapy, patient records with missing data regarding gender, race, age, dyspnea at rest, initial heart rate, systolic or diastolic blood pressure, baseline serum sodium, serum creatinine (SCr), blood urea nitrogen (BUN), or chronic diuretic use were excluded. Additionally, ...
Along with bromantan, which we just talked about, diuretics have long served as a way to mask steroid use. A diuretic is any drug that affects kidney function, resulting in increased urine output. The water pill chlorthalidone, for example, prevents fluids and salts from being reabsorbed into the kidney tubules and returned to the blood. As a result, more water leaves the body. Acetazolamide works by blocking the uptake of sodium bicarbonate in the kidney tubules. Upon excretion, the bicarbonate ion carries out water, sodium and potassium.. In patients with certain conditions, such as heart disease, diuretics can help control high blood pressure and fluid retention. But athletes who take anabolic steroids pop diuretics to dilute their urine, which decreases steroid concentration and makes it much more difficult to detect. (Of course, athletes can be tested for diuretics though, too.) Weightlifters and boxers may also down water pills to expel large amounts of fluid, which qualifies them to ...

Angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors, angiotensin-II receptor blockers (ARBs), diuretics and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) all have the potential to decrease renal function. When any of these medicines are prescribed together the patients risk of acute kidney injury (AKI) is increased. ACE inhibitors/ARBs and diuretics are often taken concurrently, either as individual medicines or combination formulations. In patients taking ACE inhibitors/ARBs and diuretics particular care is required to avoid NSAIDS (the triple whammy) due to the increased risk of AKI. The addition of a NSAID to the patients treatment may also reduce the blood pressure-lowering effect of the ACE inhibitor and reduce the volume depleting effect of the diuretic.. When treatment with an ACE inhibitor/ARB and a diuretic initiated, it is helpful to highlight the need to avoid NSAIDs in the patients notes to alert other clinicians who may consider prescribing a NSAID in the future. Patients taking an ...

Straight portion can be divided into S1, S2 and S3.. S2 has acid secretory mechanism which is important in the secretion of weak acids like diuretics, NSAIDS, uric acid, antibiotics (penicillin, cephalosporins) and forms basis of drug interactions of diuretics with uric acid. There are chances that diuretics may reduce the secretion of uric acid. Many diuretics increase the levels of uric acid in blood leading to hyperuricemia.. Similar to acids, for weak bases secretory mechanism is present in S1 and S2. Procainamide, creatinine, choline are secreted actively in S1 and S2.. Most diuretics act within the nephron. Secretion is one way to reach the binding site.. ...
The use of diuretics is common in patients with heart failure (HF), to relieve the congestive symptoms of HF. Although they are widely used, there are limited data on their ability to modulate HF-related morbidity and mortality. Diuretic efficacy may be limited by adverse neurohormonal activation and by congestion-like symptoms. Diuretics are an extremely useful and varied class of agent for the management of hypervolaemic states. This review summarises the basic features of diuretics, including their mechanism of action, indications and adverse effects in heart failure.. ...

Hypertensive disorders are the most common medical disorders during pregnancy. These disorders are a major cause of maternal and perinatal mortality and morbidity.1 Diuretics are commonly prescribed in essential hypertension before conception and are used during pregnancy for treating hypertension and cardiac disease.2. The mechanism of action of diuretics responsible for lowering blood pressure is not completely understood. The initial hypotensive response is mediated by a simple reduction in plasma volume and cardiac output. Long-term effect of low blood pressure is associated with partial reversal of the initial hemodynamic changes; the plasma volume and cardiac output partially rise toward the base-line level, while the systemic vascular resistance falls.3. Until recently, blood pressure in pregnancy was often managed using methyldopa, which was not always effective. Drugs such as prazosin and nifedipine have been introduced, and adding diuretics can potentiate the actions of all 3 drugs. In ...
Previous studies suggest that angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors cause reversible acute renal failure (ARF) in patients with hypertension, congestive heart failure (CHF), and renal disease. These patients often receive diuretics concomitantly with ACE inhibitors. The purpose of this study was to examine whether ACE inhibitors alone produce ARF or whether they do so when used in combination with diuretics. The medical records of patients taking ACE inhibitors without or with diuretics were reviewed. Complete data from 74 patients were obtained and the data were analyzed. These 74 patients had a diagnosis of hypertension, CHF or diabetes mellitus. BUN and serum creatinine values before, during, and after discontinuation of ACE inhibitor therapy for a mean period of 8.7 months were collected. Seventy-four patients were divided into two groups: Group A (n = 41) patients who received ACE inhibitors alone; Group B (n = 33) patients who received a combination of an ACE inhibitor and a diuretic.

There are three main types of diuretics; thiazide diuretics, potassium-sparing diuretics, and loop-acting diuretics. Although they all act in slightly different ways, they have the same overall effects; they all lower the amount of salts and waters in your body, which helps lower blood pressure and increase sports performance. Some examples of other types of diuretics, all of which were developed for medical purposes, are Diucardin (hydroflumethiazide), Hydromox (quinethazone), Naturetin (bendroflumethiazide), Aldactone (spironolactone), Dyrenium (triamterene), and Midamor (amiloride).. Diuretics were not originally designed to improve sports performance. They were originally given to medical patients who suffered from high blood pressure, edema, and certain kidney disease. Diuretics are also used to treat congestive heart failure. If you are thinking of trying or using diuretics to improve sports performance, you should think twice. There is a long list of negative side effects associated with ...

Background: Loop diuretics are given to the majority of patients with chronic heart failure (HF). Whether the different pharmacological properties of the three guideline-recommended loop diuretics result in differential effects on survival is unknown. Methods: 6293 patients with chronic HF using either bumetanide, furosemide or torasemide were identified in three European HF registries. Patients were individually matched on both the respective propensity scores for receipt of the individual drug and dose-equivalents thereof. Results: During a follow-up of 35,038 patient-years, 652 (53.7%), 2179 (51.9%), and 268 (30.4%) patients died amongst those prescribed bumetanide, furosemide, and torasemide, respectively. In univariable analyses of the general sample, bumetanide and furosemide were both associated with higher mortality as compared with torasemide treatment (HR 1.50, 95% CI 1.31-1.73, p , 0.001, and HR 1.34, CI 1.18-1.52, p , 0.001, respectively).

Abstract The present experiment was aimed to examine the effect of furosemide (loop diuretic) on ingestive behavior & some hematological parameters. The adult Wistar rats (n=6/ group) were divided into control group (n =6; Group I) and experimental group (n =6; Group II). The experimental group received furosemide intraperitonially (40mg/kg BW) for a duration of 30 days. The control group of rats was injected with distilled water of same volume intraperitonially. Body weight, food and water intake was measured each day. At the end of the experimental procedure; blood samples were collected to measure the hematological parameters such as total leukocyte count (TLC), blood cell (RBC) count , Packed cell volume (PCV) and hemoglobin (Hb) concentration.

Serum, lymphocyte and erythrocyte potassium, magnesium and calcium concentrations were measured in 31 patients with congestive cardiac failure and 14 patients with mild noncomplicated hypertension, who had been receiving either furosemide or chlorothia-zide (with or without potassium supplementation) or a combination of hydrochlorothiazide and amiloride for more than 6 months. Lymphocyte potassium concentrations (pmol/l00 cells ± SE) were as follows: controls 18.1 ± 1.5, furosemide 14.1 ± 0.9 (p | 0.001), furosemide + potassium 12.3 ± 0.7 (p | 0.001), chlorothiazide 13.1 ± 1.0 (p | 0.001) and hydrochlorothiazide + amiloride 18.6 ± 0.7 (p = NS). There was a statistically significant relationship between the number of months the patients had been on diuretics and their lymphocyte potassium concentrations. Serum electrolytes, apart from the group receiving chlorothiazide who showed a significant fall in serum K, were unchanged.
In more severe heart failure, a diuretic is added. Even if diuretics alone controls a patients symptoms, they should be used in combination with an ACE inhibitor and often a beta-blocker. A thiazide diuretic may be sufficient -- if not, a loop diuretic is used.. Diuretic drugs are used in most heart failure patients because heart failure leads to retention of sodium and water by the kidneys, which can lead to fluid overload. Congestion in the lungs can interfere with their ability to exchange oxygen from the air and can be life-threatening. Doctors prescribe diuretic drugs for all patients with heart failure who have evidence of fluid overload, such as lung congestion, raised jugular venous pressure or peripheral edema, and most heart failure patients are eventually placed on a diuretic drug.. Doctors usually start patients on a low dose of a diuretic and increase the dose until the effective range is reached. When the diuretic is working effectively, the patient will lose weight because of ...
Patients with compensated Child-A cirrhosis have sub clinical hypovolemia and diuretic treatment could result in renal impairment. To evaluate the changes in renal functional mass as reflected by DMSA uptake after single injection of intravenous furosemide in patients with compensated liver cirrhosis. Eighteen cirrhotic patients were divided in two groups; eight patients (group 1, age 56 ± 9.6 yrs, Gender 5M/3F, 3 alcoholic and 5 non alcoholic) were given low intravenous 40 mg furosemide and ten other patients (group 2, age 54 ± 9.9, Gender 6M/4F, 4 alcoholic and 6 non alcoholic) were given high 120 mg furosemide respectively. Renoscintigraphy with 100MBq Of Tc 99 DMSA was given intravenously before and 90 minutes after furosemide administration and SPECT imaging was determined 3 hours later. All patients were kept under low sodium diet (80mEq/d) and all diuretics were withdrawn for 3 days. 8-hours UNa exertion, Calculated and measured Creatinine clearance (CCT) were performed for all patients.
Background: Resistance to loop diuretics occurs frequently in patients with acute decompensated heart failure (1), and secondary hyperaldosteronism plays a major role (2). Aldosterone antagonists are a standard of care in heart failure but are commonly used at low, nonnatriuretic doses to avoid hyperkalemia (3, 4 ...

Mechanoreceptors and chemoreceptors have been identified inside the kidney, but their functional role is still largely unclear. The aim of this study was to investigate whether changes in urine output could modify the discharge rate of renal afferent fibers. Experiments were performed in anesthetized cats in which afferent renal nerve activity (ARNA) was recorded by standard electrophysiological techniques from a centrally cut renal nerve. Arterial pressure, renal blood flow velocity, urine flow rate, and renal pelvic pressure were also measured. Three diuretic maneuvers were tested in the same cat: intravenous administration of physiological saline (8 to 13 mL/min for 2 minutes), furosemide (1 mg/kg), and atrial natriuretic peptide (ANP, 1 microgram/kg). The three maneuvers increased urine flow rate and pelvic pressure, respectively, 137.0 +/- 20.6% and 136.8 +/- 21.1% (saline), 148.6 +/- 31.7% and 139.6 +/- 43.5% (furosemide), and 75.9 +/- 7.9% and 62.1 +/- 21.2% (ANP) at the time of the ...

An electron microscope study of the mesothoracic ganglionic mass and the abdominal nerves which leave it has shown that the axons from the neurosecretory cell bodies in the ganglionic mass some of which at least have previously been shown to contain the diuretic hormone run out into the proximal lengths of the abdominal nerves where they branch. Some of the branches have been followed to neurosecretory axon endings which typically are packed with neurosecretory granules and lie immediately beneath the fibrous nerve sheath.. 4. By constricting fed insects at various positions it has been possible to show that most of the diuretic hormone is ...

There are several types of diuretics. The categories are defined based upon their mechanism of action. a. Osmotic Diuretics. Osmostic diuretics produce a diuresis of water rather than a diuresis of sodium. The body does not metabolize osmotic diuretics. Instead, the drug molecules are not reabsorbed in the kidney tubules. This greatly affects the tonicity of every part of the kidney tubules through which the glomerular filtrates pass. By the process of osmosis, the drug molecules draw an increased amount of water from the interstitial fluid compartment. The result is that a great volume of urine is produced (water diuresis). It just so happens that sodium is contained in that urine and is subsequently removed from the body. Thus, the osmotic diuretics indirectly produce a removal of sodium from the body. Following is one example of an osmotic diuretic: Mannitol. Mannitol is used to prevent acute renal (kidney) failure, evaluate kidney functioning, treat glaucoma (by the reduction of intraocular ...

Query 11-03: How do thiazide diuretics compare to ACE inhibitors and combination antihypertensive products in terms of effectiveness (and cost-effectiveness) for the management of hypertension in non-diabetic patients?. This project, which originated with a query by British Columbia Ministry of Health, was funded in 2013 for 3 years. Initial results have been generated and discussed with DSEN and Health Canada, with a peer-reviewed article published in the Journal of Clinical Hypertension (J Clin Hypertens. 2015;17(11):848-54). Additional analysis have been conducted with Marketscan database (2011-2014). We constructed a retrospective cohort of non-diabetic hypertensive adults who were new users of thiazide diuretics (TD), converting enzyme inhibitor (ACEi), calcium-channel blockers (CCB), or angiotensin-2 antagonists (ARB) as monotherapy. We performed Cox regression models to assess the risk for drug discontinuation, adding a drug or switching to a new drug, and a composite outcome of clinical ...
Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs have been shown to decrease the natriuretic response to loop diuretics in many but not all studies. Recently, indomethacin was shown not to affect the natriuretic response to the new loop diuretic torasemide in healthy volunteers. Inasmuch as sodium balance has been reported to modify the effect of indomethacin on furosemide-induced natriuresis in dogs, we investigated the effect of indomethacin, under two sodium balances (50 and 150 mEq/day), on the natriuretic response to two doses of torasemide in six healthy volunteers. Under the low sodium diet, indomethacin reduced the natriuretic response to torasemide like that to furosemide. In contrast, on the normal sodium diet, indomethacin failed to affect the natriuretic response to torasemide. Indomethacin reduced base-line and diuretic-induced increase in plasma renin activity, plasma angiotensin II levels and urinary excretion of prostaglandin 6-keto F1 alpha to a similar extent under the two sodium diets. ...

Trichloromethiazide is indicated as adjunctive therapy in edema associated with congestive heart failure, hepatic cirrhosis, and corticosteroid and estrogen therapy. Trichloromethiazide has also been found useful in edema due to various forms of renal dysfunction such as nephrotic syndrome, acute glomer-ulonephritis, and chronic renal failure. Trichloromethiazide is also indicated in the management of hypertension either as the sole therapeutic agent or to enhance the effectiveness of other antihypertensive drugs in the more severe forms of hypertension. Like other thiazides, Trichloromethiazide promotes water loss from the body (diuretics). They inhibit Na+/Cl- reabsorption from the distal convoluted tubules in the kidneys. Thiazides also cause loss of potassium and an increase in serum uric acid. Thiazides are often used to treat hypertension, but their hypotensive effects are not necessarily due to their diuretic activity. Thiazides have been shown to prevent hypertension-related morbidity ...

Loop diuretics are given to help reduce the amount of water in the body. They work by acting on the kidneys to increase the flow of urine.Furosemide is also used to treat high blood pressure (hypertension) in those patients who are not helped by other medicines or in those patients who have kidney problems.High blood pressure adds to the work load of the heart and arteries. If it continues for a long time, the heart and arteries may not function properly. This can damage the blood vessels of the brain, heart, and kidneys, resulting in a stroke, heart failure, or kidney failure. High blood pressure may also increase the risk of heart attacks. These problems may be less likely to occur if blood pressure is controlled.Loop diuretics may also be used for other conditions as determined by your doctor.This medicine is available only with your doctors prescription, in the following dosage forms: Oral. Ethacrynic Acid Oral solution (U.S. and Canada). Furosemide Oral solution (U.S. and ...
Celery seed extract is commonly used as a diuretic and for high blood pressure, and this herbal medicine has shown some scientific benefits in both of these areas. A celery seed diuretic can be used for a number of conditions, and these include high blood pressure, gout, and others. A diuretic can help with high blood pressure because it removes excess urine and sodium from your body, which otherwise will build up and make it harder for your heart to pump and cause your blood pressure to increase. Celery seed health benefits has been known for many years, and this herbal medicine has been used since ancient Greek and Roman times for medical purposes.. ...
Triamterene (trade name Dyrenium) is a potassium-sparing diuretic used in combination with thiazide diuretics for the treatment of hypertension and edema. In combination with hydrochlorothiazide, it is marketed under the names Maxzide and Dyazide. Triamterene directly blocks the epithelial sodium channel (ENaC) on the lumen side of the kidney collecting tubule. Other diuretics cause a decrease in the sodium concentration of the forming urine due to the entry of sodium into the cell via the ENaC, and the concomitant exit of potassium from the principal cell into the forming urine. Blocking ENaC prevents this from happening. Amiloride works in the same way. Sodium channel blockers directly inhibit the entry of sodium into the sodium channels. Common side effects may include a depletion of sodium, folic acid and calcium, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, headache, dizziness, fatigue, and dry mouth. Serious side effects may include heart palpitations, tingling/numbness, fever, chills, sore throat, rash, ...
Patients were eligible if they were admitted with a primary diagnosis of ADHF, randomized within 12 h after hospital presentation, and with evidence of volume overload (pulmonary congestion) on a chest X-ray study and had BNP levels ,100 pg/ml. Patients also displayed mild to moderate renal dysfunction with creatinine values up to 1.4 mg/dl. Some patients were supported with non invasive ventilation before randomization. Once the initial 12 h dose was determined, patients were randomized using a 1:1 ratio using a computer-generated scheme to receive the furosemide dose either divided into a twice-daily bolus injection or in a continuous infusion (mixed as a 1:1 ratio in 5 % dextrose in water) for a time period ranging from 72 to 120 h. The randomization was casual, and the physicians did not previously know the assigned arm. The dose escalation and subsequent titration of furosemide was guided by clinical response in terms of urine output volume and body weight reduction .Before randomization, ...
