In brief: Dialsysis

In renal failure high doses of water pills/ diuretics may be needes to treat pulmonary edema.
They may have to be given intravenously. Dialysis is also sometimes used and is very effective.

In brief: Pulmonary edema

The best treatment in the presence of renal failure may vary by patient.
Some patients respond to high dose diuretics and preload reduction, many need dialysis or hemofiltration.. When dialysis or hemofiltration isn't available and the situation demands one can even remove large volumes of fluid by inducing osmotic diarrhea.
