Loop diuretics belong to the most common medications used in ambulatory and hospitalized patients, especially in situation of hypervolemia and chronic renal failure. Prolonged used of these agents in particular medical conditions can lead to attenuation of their diuretic effect, commonly known as "resistance" to diuretics.
