Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


A case of digoxin overdosage is presented in which hemodialysis and forced diuresis were employed in the treatment. Hemodialysis was found to be ineffective in removing significant amounts of the drug and additional experimental work using a dog confirmed that forced diuresis failed to alter the rate of digoxin excretion.
