AIMS To study the loop diuretic (LD) response and effect of LD omission in ambulatory heart failure (HF) patients on chronic low dose LD. METHODS AND RESULTS Urine collections were performed on 2 consecutive days in 40 ambulatory HF patients with 40-80 mg furosemide (day 1 with LD; day 2 without LD). Three phases were collected each day: (1) first 6 hours; (2) rest of the day; and (3) night. On the day of LD intake, the total natriuresis was 129.9 (86.9-155.0) mmol/24h and urine output was 1650 ...
