Journal Club (issue 5): Torasemide, is it ‘better’ than furosemide?

Journal Club | 29 mins

In this journal club we continue our theme of cardiovascular therapeutics and talk about the loop diuretic torasemide. Torasemide (torsemide in USA) has been around for several years but has only recently gained more attention in the veterinary market after the release of two licensed products for dogs. Here we discuss the evidence behind the use of this diuretic in both companion animals and people and how we might implement this knowledge in a practical manner.
