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.

New regulations just announced by the Department of Veterans Affairs will make it easier for veterans to receive benefits for post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Under the current rules, applicants must document a specific event (such as an explosion or firefight) as the cause of their PTSD. The new system acknowledges “the inherently stressful nature of the places and circumstances of military service, in which the reality and fear of hostile or terrorist activities is always present,” according to Michael Walcoff, the VA’s acting undersecretary for benefits.
