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.

12.31 SAVE Launches Initiative to Help People Bereaved by Suicide

In 2010, SAVE (Suicide Awareness Voices of Education) sponsored the first Survivor and Bereavement Leadership Summit in Minneapolis, bringing together 20 of the nation’s leading suicide survivors and experts to help SAVE align its goals with the needs and interests of people bereaved by suicide. Participants discussed existing systems and resources, and work groups were formed to look at the needs of survivors at various time periods and states of grief. Priority areas for future work and research in suicide grief and bereavement included: an online news magazine for professionals and volunteers; national distribution of SAVE resources on coping with grief and loss; and exploring partnerships with suicide bereavement support groups nationally.
