Sodium, Potassium and Magnesium Balance During Recovery from Congestive Heart Failure due to Cor Pulmonale and Other Heart Diseases
Five cases of congestive failure due to varied causes were studied metabolically during recovery. The cases of cor pulmonale showed changes in cations and osmotically active base, similar to changes in heart failure due to other causes. A difference in the movement of water was noted between three of the present cases and the usual case of congestive heart failure.
