One theoretical concern is that vasopressin-receptor antagonists might increase serum sodium levels too rapidly, putting patients at risk for osmotic demyelination.

NEJM — The Syndrome of Inappropriate Antidiuresis

Treating the underlying cause in this case, small-cell lung cancer is the definitive means of correcting the hyponatremia. Clin Endocrinol Oxf ; N Engl Hyponatreia Med ; Causes and management of hyponatremia. The article ends with the authors’ clinical recommendations. Most cases of hyponatremia that occur out of the hospital are chronic and minimally symptomatic, except in marathon runners, users of 3,4-methylenedioxymethamphetamine MDMA, also known as “ecstasy”and people who drink water to excess; in these groups, severe symptoms usually indicate acute hyponatremia and require rapid correction.

Initial reports suggested that secretion of arginine vasopressin in SIADH was independent of plasma osmolality. Therapy in nephrology and hypertension: Acute hospital-induced hyponatremia in children: Myelinolysis after correction of hyponatremia. Clinical assessment of extracellular fluid volume in hyponatremia.

Treatment of symptomatic hyponatremia. These agents frequently cause dry mouth and thirst, 36 which stimulate water intake, slowing the rise in serum sodium levels.

Other formulas incorporate amounts of salt and water infused and excreted 3940 ; these add precision, but at the price of complexity. This disorder, which includes both central pontine and extrapontine myelinolysis, begins with lethargy and affective changes generally after initial improvement of neurologic symptoms with treatmentfollowed by mutism or dysarthria, spastic quadriparesis, and pseudobulbar palsy.

Therapeutic relowering of the serum sodium in a patient hyponatremua excessive correction of hyponatremia. Use of these agents in practice would require similarly close monitoring of serum sodium levels.


Berl reports receiving consulting fees from Astellas and Hypoonatremia, lecture fees from Astellas, and research support from Otsuka. Her thyroid function and adrenal function were normal. Ellison reports receiving research grants from Chemica Technologies, and Dr.

A year-old woman noted an unpleasant, sweet taste in her mouth. Add to Citation Manager. E-mail When Letters Appear.

Measurement of the serum level of hyplnatremia vasopressin is not recommended routinely, because urinary osmolality above mOsm nej kilogram of water is usually sufficient to indicate excess of circulating arginine vasopressin. 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 nsjm of the formula shown in Figure 2.


Areas of Uncertainty Optimal Strategies for Correcting Serum Sodium Levels There are no data from randomized hyponatrrmia 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. Prevention of Postoperative Hyponatremia Surgical procedures typically increase circulating levels of arginine vasopressin; nevertheless, hypotonic intravenous fluids are frequently administered perioperatively.

Add to Personal Archive. 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.

Although this is the case in about one third of patients with SIADH 7 Figure 1in other patients with this condition, secretion of arginine hyponatrmeia is fully suppressed, resulting in dilute urine, but at a serum sodium level lower than normal a “reset osmostat”.

A syndrome of renal sodium loss and hyponatremia probably resulting from inappropriate secretion of antidiuretic hormone. Although hypotension has not been reported in association with conivaptan, it is a risk, because conivaptan is a nonselective vasopressin-receptor antagonist; blocking the vasopressin V 1 receptor induces vasodilation.
