ABSTRACT Continuous versus bolus dosing of furosemide has been a longstanding debate for clinicians treating patients with acute decompensated heart failure. This article discusses the efficacy and safety of both options, and reviews several meta-analyses examining this topic.

At the Mayo Clinic in Phoenix, Ariz., Stephanie Jalaba and Jennifer Palermo practice hospital internal medicine and Adriane I. Budavari is a consultant in hospital internal medicine. The authors have disclosed no potential conflicts of interest, financial or otherwise.
