Kidney and Fluid/Electrolyte Disorders and Health/Disease Concepts
A 41-year-old obese male patient is diagnosed with congestive heart failure (CHF). He is told to begin a moderate exercise routine with a healthy diet and is prescribed several medications — including a diuretic.
- Based on your knowledge of the kidney and the disease of CHF, what factors would be important in selecting a specific diuretic?
- How would you explain to this patient how it works?
- If this patient developed a disease that caused the renal blood flow to be diminished, how might this impact the medication he is taking for his congestive heart failure?
- As his health care provider, how would you change his treatment in this situation?
