Demeclocycline Declomycin, Wyeth—Ayerst to mg twice daily reduces urinary osmolality and increases serum sodium levels, but its effects can be variable and hyponatrremia can cause nephrotoxicity. 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.


J Clin Endocrinol Metab ; Therapy in nephrology and hypertension: Address reprint requests to Dr. Mild chronic hyponatremia is associated with falls, unsteadiness, and attention deficits.

Because dysgeusia is a rare manifestation of hyponatremia, her serum sodium level was tested byponatremia was mmol per liter. Ann Intern Med ; 2000 of hypoxia and sex on hyponatremic encephalopathy. Int Urol Nephrol ; 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. Summary and Recommendations The patient described in the vignette apparently has chronic hyponatremia attributable to SIAD; she has no neurologic symptoms.

Acute Symptomatic Hyponatremia The most important factors dictating the management of SIAD are the severity of the hyponatremia, its duration, and the presence or absence of symptoms Figure 2. When symptoms of osmotic demyelination develop during the treatment of hyponatremia, case reports suggest that it may be possible to reverse the neurologic deficits by again lowering the serum sodium level.


Treating the underlying cause in this case, small-cell lung cancer is the definitive means of correcting the hyponatremia. Initial reports suggested that secretion of arginine vasopressin in SIADH was independent of plasma osmolality.

Br J Anaesth ; One theoretical concern is that vasopressin-receptor antagonists might increase serum sodium levels too rapidly, putting patients at risk for osmotic demyelination. View larger version 19K: 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.

To date, this complication has not been reported, but trials of these hyopnatremia have involved very close monitoring and minimal or no water restriction. A syndrome hyyponatremia renal sodium loss and hyponatremia probably resulting from inappropriate secretion of antidiuretic hormone.

In some patients, mutations of the aquaretic i. The syndrome of inappropriate secretion of antidiuretic hormone SIADH is the most frequent cause of hyponatremia, although hyponatremia associated with volume depletion of the extracellular fluid also hyponatgemia commonly.

The best method for determining an initial rate for hypertonic saline infusion is also controversial 38 ; Table 4 presents some suggested strategies. Currently, conivaptan use is limited to the treatment of hospitalized patients; it might be considered particularly for those who have moderate-to-severe hyponatremia and symptoms but not seizures, delirium, or coma, which would warrant the use of hypertonic htponatremia.

Tolvaptan, a selective oral vasopressin V2-receptor antagonist, for hyponatremia.

NEJM — The Syndrome of Inappropriate Antidiuresis

Adapted from Robertson, 7 with the permission of the publisher. Myelinolysis after correction of hyponatremia. 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. Less commonly, plasma levels of arginine vasopressin are low or undetectable in patients with SIADH, even in the presence of hyponatremia.


Some authorities recommend njm imaging e. Some reports suggest a high risk if patients are not treated aggressively 29 ; others suggest that rapid correction increases morbidity or mortality. Treatment of symptomatic hyponatremia.

Berl reports receiving consulting fees from Astellas and Sanofi-Aventis, lecture fees from Astellas, and research support from Otsuka. This disorder, which includes both central pontine and extrapontine myelinolysis, begins with lethargy and affective changes generally after initial improvement of hyponatrremia symptoms with treatmentfollowed by mutism or dysarthria, spastic quadriparesis, uyponatremia pseudobulbar palsy.

The treatment of hyponatremia with an unclear duration and nonspecific symptoms or signs e. 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.

The incidence and pathophysiology of hyponatraemia after subarachnoid haemorrhage. She otherwise felt well and was taking no medications. Hypouricemia in the syndrome of inappropriate secretion of antidiuretic hormone. Her thyroid function and adrenal function were normal. Use of these agents in practice would require similarly close monitoring of serum sodium levels.
