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.

12.29 Texas: UMDNJ offers helpline for soldiers stationed at Fort Hood in Texas,, Feb. 2, 2011

A brand-new 24-hour helpline called Vets4Warriors is now available to soldiers at Fort Hood, Texas. The new service is an extension of the Vets2Vets program, which is run by the New Jersey Department of Military and Veterans Affairs and the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey (UMDNJ). Christopher Kosseff, president and CEO of UMDNJ’s University Behavioral HealthCare (which administers the helpline call center) got the idea to expand the hotline at a Department of Defense suicide prevention task force meeting he attended last year. At the meeting, Kosseff learned about an uptick of suicides at Fort Hood. “Fort Hood has a particular problem with suicide. We don’t know why that is,” said Kosseff. Like the Vets2Vets helpline, the Vets4Warriors line is staffed by military veterans with training in counseling servicemen. The Vets2Vets program has received nearly 18,000 calls in its five years of operation.
