Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Changes in extracellular fluid volume, plasma volume, exchangeable sodium and potassium following short or prolonged treatment of arterial hypertension with diuretic drugs are reviewed, and divergent results of different authors are discussed. Effectiveness of diuretic treatment of secondary hypertension, such as renal artery stenosis and primary aldosteronism, is reported. The effect of diuretic drugs on renin release in essential hypertensive patients is discussed.
