Why is injection frusemide used during blood transfusion? What is cause of waist pain?
Hi there, Thanks for your query. Inj Frusemide is given whenever there is excess fluid in the body; when the heart is weak or has heart disease; in kidney diseases. Any further increase in fluid levels in the system, increases the load on heart and cause it to fail. Hence, Frusimide- which increases urine output and reduces fluid load- is given before blood transfusion. Dr. Rakesh Karanwal
