Mannitol

4

Pt with CHF. Do not give this diuretic?

Mannitol

5

Pt with anuria. Contraindicated diuretic?

Mannitol

6

Drug that causes self-limited NaHCO3 diuresis. Uses? cause what type of acid-base disturbance?

Acetazolamide. Used for Glaucoma, metabolic alkylosis, altitude sickness, pseudotumor cerebri. Hyperchloremic Acidosis

7

Pt treated for altitude sickness. Comes in with NH3 toxicity. Drug?

Acetazolamide

8

Pt treated for pseudotumor cerebri. Comes in with paresthesias. Other toxicities

Acetazolamide. HyperCl Metabolic acidosis ammonia toxicity, sulfa allergy

9

Drugs that work in TAL?

Loop diuretics and Ethacrynic acid

10

Drug that abolishes hypertonicity of medulla, preventing concentration of urine. Can cause excretion of what electrolytes?

Loop diuretics (furosemide). Excretion of Ca and K

11

Pt on that drug that stimulates PGE release to vasodilate AA. Toxicities?

Furosemide - OH DANG
Ototoxicity
HypoK
Dehydration
Allergy
Nephritis
Gout

12

Pt on this drug for diuresis in loop of henle has sulfa allergy. Derived from? Never use it to treat?

Ethacrynic acid. Phenoxyacetic acid. Can cause hyperuricemia, never use to treat gout

13

Drug that should never be given with pt with gout?

Ethacrynic acid (can cause hyperuricemia)

14

Diuretic that may cause hyperCa, may also cause?

HCT. Hyper-glycemia, -lipidemia, -uricemia, -calcemia

15

This diuretic can be used for nephrogeneic diabetes insipidus?

HCT

16

This diuretic can be paradoxically used for idiopathic hyperCa?

HCT

17

Diuretic for CHF?

HCT or K-sparing

18

K sparing diuretics?

The K STAys
Spirolactone, Amiloride, Triamterene and eplerenone

19

Diuretics that can cause gynecomastia, also block?

Spirolactone and eplerenone. Block ALDO

20

Diuretics that may cause acidosis?

Carbonic Anhydrase inhibitors (decrease HCO3)
K-sparing (decreases K/H secretion)

21

MoAs Diuretics that may cause Alkalemia?

Loop diuretics and thiazides
1) increase HCO3 while volume contracting
2) K loss leads to H entering cells
3) In low K states, H is excreted in exchange for Na

22

Ca increased with this diuretic? Decreased with this?

thiazides; loop

23

Diuretic that can prevent unfavorable heart remodeling as a result of chronic hypertension?

ACE-Is

24

Cough
Angioedema
Teratogen
Creatinine increase (down GFR)
HyperK
Hypotension

25
