HCTZ and acetazolamide would also deplete potassium, they are just not as strong of diuretics. To be potassium-sparing, it has to have effect at the collecting ducts. Any diuretic that works before the collecting ducts will increase the concentration of sodium going to the collecting ducts and stimulate sodium/potassium exchange at the collecting ducts, potentially leading to decreases in potassium

How on earth would they expect the parents to conceal a malformed upper extremity from the grandmother and the aunt of the child in a family that is close enough to allow these people to be in the room during the delivery. As always the ethics questions seem to make sense in retrospect, but always seem to have a ludicrous action on your part that you wouldnt do in practice.
I believe what you're speaking about occurs more during hypersensitivity reaction. In this case, there is damage to the endothelial cells, which they also release histamine for vasodilation. which creates permeability for the neutrophills and erythema from the increased blood volume.
