Therapy of dysnatremic disorders.

NEJM — The Syndrome of Inappropriate Antidiuresis

Berl reports receiving consulting fees from Astellas and Sanofi-Aventis, lecture fees from Astellas, and research support from Otsuka. Br J Anaesth ; In some patients, mutations of the aquaretic i. Mild chronic hyponatremia is associated with falls, unsteadiness, and attention deficits. Disturbances of sodium in critically ill adult neurologic patients: This disorder, which includes both central pontine and extrapontine myelinolysis, begins with gyponatremia and affective changes generally after initial improvement of neurologic symptoms with treatmentfollowed by mutism or dysarthria, spastic quadriparesis, and pseudobulbar palsy.

When diagnostic uncertainty remains, volume contraction of the extracellular fluid can be ruled out by infusing 2 liters of 0. The Clinical Problem Hyponatremia, defined as an excess hyopnatremia water in relation to the sodium in the extracellular fluid, is the most common electrolyte disorder in hospitalized patients.

The best method for determining an initial rate for hypertonic saline infusion is also controversial 38 ; Table 4 presents some suggested strategies.


Therapy in nephrology and hypertension: Therapeutic approach in patients with dysnatraemias. Areas of Uncertainty Optimal Strategies for Correcting Serum Sodium Levels There are no data from randomized trials to guide optimal strategies for correction of serum sodium levels in patients with either acute or chronic hyponatremia, and the relative risks of osmotic demyelination and of hyponatremic encephalopathy continue to be debated.

A normal or elevated measured osmolality value, however, does not rule out hypotonic hyponatremia, because urea is an ineffective osmole. Treating the syndrome of inappropriate ADH secretion with isotonic saline. View larger version 28K: Ann Intern Med ; The serum osmolality was mOsm per kilogram of water, the urinary osmolality mOsm per kilogram of water, the urinary sodium 85 mmol per liter, and the urinary potassium 40 mmol per liter.

In the absence of symptoms, gradual correction of the hyponatremia is appropriate and should involve adequate solute intake including salt and protein and fluid restriction, starting at ml per day of water on the basis of the formula shown in Figure 2.

Efficacy nemj safety of oral conivaptan: Causes and management of hyponatremia. 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.

Utility and limitations of biochemical parameters in the evaluation of hyponatremia in the elderly.


Demeclocycline Declomycin, Wyeth—Ayerst to mg twice daily reduces urinary osmolality and increases serum sodium levels, but its effects can be variable and it can cause nephrotoxicity. Hypouricemia, inappropriate secretion of antidiuretic hormone, and small cell carcinoma of the lung. Hyponartemia traditional approach is to estimate a sodium deficit and is not physiologically based, because SIAD is characterized by a water excess, rather than a sodium deficit.


Int Urol Nephrol ; Treating the underlying hypinatremia in this case, small-cell lung cancer is the definitive means of correcting the hyponatremia. Acid-base and electrolyte disorders: Alternatively, conivaptan might be used to increase the serum sodium level, although clinical experience with vasopressin-receptor antagonists remains very limited.

Fluid restriction, estimated on the basis of levels of urinary and plasma electrolytes Figure 2is a cornerstone of therapy.

Clinical assessment of extracellular fluid volume in hyponatremia. If the patient were disoriented, we would recommend increasing her serum sodium level by 0.

Acute Symptomatic Hyponatremia The most important factors dictating the management of Hyponayremia are the severity of the hyponatremia, its duration, and the presence or absence of symptoms Figure 2. Combined fractional excretion of sodium and urea better predicts response to saline in hyponatremia than do usual clinical and biochemical parameters.
