My mother has comorbidities of CHF with Pulmonary Edema, COPD, Ascites related to Bowel Obstruction and Bladder Cancer. Her B/P averages 90-100/45-60; pulse 92 recently I have taken her home to care for her. She takes 10mg Prednisone QD, Neb tx TID, OXY 2.5mg SL Q2hrs, Dig for pulse>60 and PruneLax QD, Beano BID. My question is she had been taking 20mg Lasix QD without KlorCon is this ok to still give to manage CHF/EDEMA? And what about her low blood pressure is there a different parameter I shoould use for her chronic Hypotension?
