Furosemide 40mg – A Close Look at the Generic Version of Lasix

Lasix is actually the branded version of the generic drug furosemide.  These drugs are mainly diuretic in nature which is also part of their mechanism of action.  Basically, the main purpose of furosemide 40mg is to induce increase in urine in order to get rid of the body’s excess water.  Furosemide 40mg also helps in preventing the absorption of salt so that this compound is passed along the urine.  Furosemide is available in doses of 20mg, furosemide 40mg, and 80mg with furosemide 40mg being the mostly prescribed.

Fluid retention and edema are some of the conditions that furosemide was made to treat.  This is particularly true for people who already suffer from medical conditions like heart diseases, liver diseases, and kidney issues.  Read more…

What do the CMA's members want?

Yesterday's CMA Members' Hour was closed to media so Canadian Medicine can't provide you with any special insight about the debates on following list of topics that the CMA says were discussed, but here's the list nonetheless:

  • the financial deficit at CMAJ
  • doctors who lose their medical association benefits because they move to a new jurisdiction
  • the need to seek patient involvement and support when the CMA is seeking changes within the health care system, perhaps via a patient advisory board
  • the development of a pension plan for physicians
  • the lack of a remuneration for physicians who take on teaching duties
  • steps the CMA is taking to help physicians use electronic medical records
  • the need for the CMA to continue promoting physician health.
What Canadian Medicine can assure you of is that none of these topics are going to disappear in coming years, and will likely be revisited today during General Council motions or in coming years.

    "Span of control" :

    Moses had thousands to "govern". He placed 10 over 10....and he only ever had to confer with 10.

    "Associations" are doing this " in reverse"( thousands of bodies with one speaking head)

    Most "associations" do not understand the looseness of the term/function "association".

    It is only a "governance" group (for the sake of many) to announce guidelines and apply membership standards which validate said membership with the user client /payor.
    All other internal activity intent on "improving" membership status outside the group needs to be clearly defined.

    According to the topics outlined for discussion it appears to want a larger "governance" role with it's own members.
    If that is the case and it intends to have an advisory board it better do two things.
    1. develop a master plan that embraces matrix grouping for it's organizational structure. This way certain types of administration can be ad hoc.
    2. place the appropriate advisory function "horizontally" ( not vertically)at the end of each project line ( because in some discussion items on the list "para" groups linked to the association TMT need to be positioned with guidance.
    Some of them won't be cheap.
