Diuretics are used quite frequently in the clinical setting. In this podcast episode, we discuss the ins and outs of:

  • Loop diuretics
  • Potassium-sparing diuretics
  • Thiazide diuretics
  • Specialty diuretics

In this brief overview, you’ll learn the most common diuretics used in each of these classes, how they work, what you need to watch for and how you’ll educate the patient.

Take auditory learning even further with Study Sesh, my private podcast that uses PodQuizzes, Drills, Case Studies and more to truly change the way you study. Learn more here.
