The C makes a K for potassium, which is less than the number of N's, therefore, hypokalemia! Also, Na is sodium.[medicowesome.com]

  • Loop Diuretic

    Torsemide has infrequent, mild, and transient adverse effects; among the most common are orthostatic hypotension, fatigue, dizziness, and nervousness.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Edit: Also, isn't sweating inducing hypERnatremia?

  • Mannitol

    . • With initial doses, warn patient to change positions slowly, especially when rising from lying or sitting position, to prevent dizziness from orthostatic hypotension.[glowm.com] Hypokalemia and hypernatremia may also occurs. Hypernatremia is due to excess loss of water compared to sodium.[openanesthesia.org] Hypotension 1 3 Terminated Treatment Elevated Intracranial Pressure / Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) 1 3 Terminated Treatment Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) 1 3 Unknown Status[drugbank.ca]
