The relationship between the intracanular concentrations of unbound (free) furosemide and its natriuretic effect is in the form of a sigmoid curve with a minimum effective furosemide excretion rate of about 10 g / min. Therefore, prolonged infusion of furosemide is more effective than repeated bolus administration. In addition, if a certain bolus dose is exceeded, no significant increase in the effect is observed. When the tubular secretion of furosemide decreases or when the drug binds to the albumin located in the lumen of the tubules (for example, in a nephrotic syndrome), the effect of furosemide decreases.

1.47 AFSP Announces New Planned Giving Campaign

Supporters Asked to Consider Bequests, Other Planned Gifts

As part of an effort to increase support for suicide prevention research, education and advocacy, as well as for programs for survivors of suicide loss, AFSP has launched a new campaign to ask for bequests, gifts of life insurance and other planned gifts. To recognize generous individuals who have included AFSP in their long-term plans, through a bequest, life-income gift, or other planned gift, the Foundation has established the Lifesavers Society.

In announcing this new campaign, AFSP has made it possible to make a planned gift in memory of a loved one and they can also be directed to a specific aspect of the Foundation’s work. Generally, such gifts to AFSP made during your lifetime or at your death are tax deductible. Donors considering a bequest should consult with their attorney or tax advisor.

Contact Michael Lamma, senior director of field management and development, at (212) 363-3500 Ext. 16 or at for more information about these gift planning ideas.
