Contrary to popular thought, Lasix (generic is furosemide) is not a water pill: it is a pill of Lasix or it could be an IV of Lasix too. Not only does Lasix diurese congested patients, it diureses congested patient lists too. At high enough doses, Lasix can cause urination from the eyes, sweat glands, vagina, and rectum.
There are 3 accepted formulas used to determine how much Lasix to administer to any given patient:
- The House of God Lasix Formula - Law VII states that age + BUN = Lasix dose.
- The Cr40 Formula - This formula states that creatinine x 40 = Lasix dose.
- The Cardiorenal Formula - Since Renal and Cards are forever dueling, the last formula is merely the average of the Renal and Cards doses i.e. Renal dose + Cards dose divided by 2 = Lasix dose.
