Large-volume diuresis is a topic that isn't discussed much in critical care curricula or textbooks. Nonetheless, this is a daily reality for intensivists, especially those living in the United States (where patients continue to be empirically treated with 30 cc/kg fluid as initial fluid bolus, for a broad variety of complaints). This chapter attempts to bridge the gap between most articles on diuresis (which focus largely on heart failure) and the realities of critical care medicine (where we are often struggling to reverse iatrogenic salt water drowning).
