WHAT is furosemide and how is it connected with exercise induced pulmonary haemorrhage (EIPH)?

Furosemide is a diuretic medicine that is used in both human and veterinary medicine. A diuretic is an agent or medicine that causes an increase in the passing of urine. Furosemide is a particularly effective diuretic and works by blocking the absorption of sodium in the kidneys (where urine is made). This results in higher amounts of sodium remaining behind in the urine.
