Answer

Plasma protein

This agent is used to supplement diuresis in patients with edema. It increases oncotic pressure and thereby promotes a fluid shift from interstitial tissues.

Albumin (Albuminar, Buminate, Flexbumin, Plasbumin)

Albumin raises oncotic pressure and thus supplements the diuretic effect of furosemide.
