Back to the same old age old question - Is it furosemide or nitrates (GTN) that you'd reach for in a patient with acute heart failure? Agreed that both these drugs have some role but which is the first drug of choice?
Frusemide still.................I thought the world is moving on to new modailites.
Would not give frusemide as firstline to some who could be already dry as bone/??Vasculopath with knackered kidneys(I think most of the patients will have either of these two)
It is my personal choice though.
And the Jury is still out on which is the best(no difference in mortality i think)
