Furosemide Cardiac Arrest Causes and Reviews


The heart has an internal electrical system that controls the rhythm of the heartbeat. Problems can cause abnormal heart rhythms, called arrhythmias. There are many types of arrhythmia. During an arrhythmia, the heart can beat too fast, too slow, or it can stop beating. Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) occurs when the heart develops an arrhythmia that causes it to stop beating. This is different than a heart attack, where the heart usually continues to beat but blood flow to the heart is blocked.

There are many possible causes of SCA. They include coronary heart disease, physical stress, and some inherited disorders. Sometimes there is no known cause for the SCA.

Without medical attention, the person will die within a few minutes. People are less likely to die if they have early defibrillation. Defibrillation sends an electric shock to restore the heart rhythm to normal. You should give cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) to a person having SCA until defibrillation can be done.

If you have had an SCA, an implantable cardiac defibrillator (ICD) reduces the chance of dying from a second SCA.

Furosemide Cardiac Arrest Reviews

I have the same feeling, definitely you are not strange.

Sat, 19 Mar 2011

I feel light headed, and my eyes feel dry as if wind is blowing. My vision has become unusually blurred and I there is a greenish yellowish tinge around my vision when I go outside in the light. When I first woke up this morning, everything I looked at had a greenish looking filter over it and when I went out to drive , my eyes were light and color sensitive to everything. It's weird as if I were in the Twilight Zone, gradually it got a little more tolerable and bearable, but there has definitely been a change since they gave me all this different medicine. I don't feel right or like myself.I feel strange

I am taking 40mgs of Furosemide daily it has really helped , i went for a drug screen for a job and it came back altered could you please tell me what caused this ?
Tue, 16 Sep 2008
After about 3 yrs of Lasix (20mg) I developed an unknown allergic reaction that caused blistering on my hands and feet. My feet would get 20-30 at a time and my hands would get hundreds at a time. I had to take medication to keep the breakouts minimized. This slow torture lasted 2 years or so. Due to a situation on my part that engaged my stubborn streak I was without lasix for a month. I realized that since I wasn't taking the lasix I also wasn't needing the pill for the blisters. Started lasix again... blisters. Stopped taking lasix... no blisters. After 2 yrs lasix wasn't really working anymore for me so it didn't really matter that I stopped. I could drink a liter of water have a lasix and still not urinate to excess. I am still sensitive to processed foods and drinks however that are flavored with the wrong quot;fruity flavoringquot; (somehow related to a chemical in lasix). No more blisters or claritin though. Yeah!
