Table 2 Comparison of biochemical measures and urine output after the randomized treatment period of approximately 120 h

From: Continuous versus bolus intermittent loop diuretic infusion in acutely decompensated heart failure: a prospective randomized trial

  Continuous infusion Bolus P-value
Urine output/24 h (mL) 2295 ± 775 2090 ± 421 <0.002
Serum creatinine (mg/dl) 1.78 ± 0.6 1.34 ± 0.3 <0.0001
eGFR (mL/min/1.73 m2) 40.6 ± 10.5 50.4 ± 11.4 <0.01
BUN (mg/dl) 100 ± 60 69 ± 31 <0.02
BNP (pg/mL) 723 ± 497 822 ± 548 <0.05
Serum sodium (mEq/L) 138 ± 4 135 ± 16 NS
Serum potassium (mEq/L) 3.6 ± 0.8 4.0 ± 0.7 <0.04
  1. Results are presented as mean ± SD. eGFR, estimated glomerular filtration rate; BUN, blood urea nitrogen; BNP, B-type natriuretic peptide; NS, not significant.
