There is still life after a heart attack. Most people who survive can expect a full recovery and lead an active life. DR AZHARI ROSMAN writes.
Have you ever wondered about the things that make the heart unique as a pump? Let us look at the various things that make the heart what it is, why it gets damaged, how we can treat them, how effective these treatments are and what happens when the pump fails. (Haven't we talked about this before? Not quite).
Perhaps the most important medicine for various types of heart failure is the class of drugs known as diuretics, which are otherwise known as water pills. The most widely used diuretic is frusemide (American furosemide, most commonly known as lasix), but others also used are bumetanide, spironolactone, amiloride, tiramterene, chlothalidone, hydrochlorothiazide, and so on.
