Acetazolamide and the potassium sparing diueretics may be used to induce diuresis but that effect is incidental to their primary indication. In this video from our Fluid and Electrolytes Masterclass, you'll learn about the mechanism of action of these medications, how acetazolamide prevents altitude sickness, and why aldactone can be used for diuresis (but probably shouldn't be).
This is video #4 in our free teaching series on diuretics.
