Description

Diuver Pharmacodynamics
Torasemide is a “loop” diuretic. Maximum diuretic effect develops 2-3 hours after oral administration. The main mechanism of action of the drug is caused by the reversible binding of thoracemide to the sodium/chloride/potassium ion transporter, located in the apical membrane of the thick segment of the ascending loop of Genle, which results in reduction
or completely inhibits sodium ion reabsorption and decreases intracellular fluid osmotic pressure and water reabsorption. It blocks myocardial aldosterone receptors reduces fibrosis and improves myocardial diastolic function.
Torasemide causes hypokalemia to a lesser extent than furosemide, but it is more active and its effect is more prolonged.
The use of thoracemide is the most reasonable choice for long-term therapy.
