If I read correctly what your equation is something like
((dy/B) / (A dx) ) == (Sqrt[B/y] - 1) (1 - Exp[-y/B]^(1/2)
so with y/B = z, u = A x you have
du = dz / (Sqrt[1/z] - 1) * (1 - Exp[-z]^(-1/2)
Integrate[dz / (Sqrt[1/z] - 1) * (1 - Exp[-z]^(-1/2),z]
gives
u==(Sqrt[2*Pi] + 2*E^(z/2)*(Sqrt[E^(-z)] + Sqrt[1/z])*Sqrt[-z] -
Sqrt[2*Pi]*Erf[Sqrt[-z]/Sqrt[2]])/
(E^(z/2)*(Sqrt[E^(-z)]*Sqrt[1/z]*Sqrt[-z]))
This transcendental equation is solvable for u->z[u] only numerical.
Of course, if you are interested in numerical solutions you can NDSolve
the original equation directly, too.
