Age and gender as risk factors for hyponatremia and hypernatremia.

Ellison reports receiving research grants from Chemica Technologies, and Dr. Prevention of Postoperative Hyponatremia Surgical procedures typically increase circulating levels of arginine vasopressin; nevertheless, hypotonic intravenous fluids are frequently administered perioperatively. A syndrome of renal sodium loss and hyponatremia probably resulting from inappropriate secretion of antidiuretic hormone.

Endocrinol Metab Clin North Am ; Incidence and prevalence of hyponatremia. Am J Med Sci ; Measurement of the serum level of arginine vasopressin is not recommended routinely, because urinary osmolality above mOsm per kilogram of water is usually sufficient to indicate excess of circulating arginine vasopressin. Arch Intern Med ; The shaded area represents normal values of plasma AVP. Loop diuretics also increase the rate of increase in the serum sodium level.


Efficacy and safety of oral conivaptan: When the hyponatremia is chronic and asymptomatic, a diagnosis can be pursued before treatment is initiated. A computed tomographic CT scan of the thorax showed a mass in the lower lobe of the left lung, which proved to be a small-cell carcinoma. Hypouricemia, inappropriate secretion of antidiuretic hormone, and small cell carcinoma of the lung.

Treatment of severe hyponatremia: J Am Soc Nephrol ;8: This increase can be accomplished by promoting free-water excretion with the njm of furosemide and replacing sodium and potassium losses with 0. A prospective study on hyponatraemia in medical cancer patients: Nephrogenic syndrome of inappropriate antidiuresis.

Hypouricemia in the syndrome of inappropriate secretion of antidiuretic hormone. N Engl J Med ; One theoretical concern is that vasopressin-receptor antagonists might increase serum sodium levels too rapidly, putting patients at risk for osmotic demyelination. Clin Endocrinol Oxf ; Many limit correction to 8 mmol per liter over a period of 24 hours and 18 mmol per liter over a period of 48 hours; close monitoring of the rate of correction every 2 to 3 hours 25 is recommended to avoid overcorrection.


No other potential conflict of interest relevant to this article was reported.

NEJM — The Syndrome of Inappropriate Antidiuresis

Another approach is to calculate the effect of 1 liter of an infusate on the serum sodium level, then estimate the volume needed for infusion; this formula predicts actual changes in the serum sodium level hpyonatremia well, 38 but it involves two calculations, which can be confusing. E-mail When Letters Appear. She otherwise felt well and was taking no medications. Other formulas incorporate amounts of salt and water infused and excreted 3940 ; these add precision, but at the price of complexity.
