Therapeutic relowering of the serum sodium in a patient after excessive correction of hyponatremia. 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.

In a double-blind, randomized trial, in 2000 assigned to conivaptan for 4 days, as compared with those assigned to placebo, the serum sodium levels increased by 6 mmol per liter.

Most cases caused by malignant disease resolve with effective yhponatremia therapy, and most of those due to medication resolve promptly when the offending agent is discontinued. Causes and management of hyponatremia. Am J Physiol Renal Physiol ; 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 hypnatremia demyelination and of hyponatremic encephalopathy continue to be debated.

NEJM — The Syndrome of Inappropriate Antidiuresis

A syndrome of renal sodium loss and hyponatremia probably resulting from inappropriate secretion of antidiuretic hormone. The Clinical Problem Hyponatremia, defined as an excess of water in relation to the sodium in the extracellular fluid, is the most common electrolyte disorder in hyoonatremia patients.

Successful long-term treatment of hyponatremia in syndrome of inappropriate antidiuretic hormone secretion with SR B, an orally active, nonpeptide, vasopressin V-2 receptor antagonist.

One theoretical concern is that vasopressin-receptor antagonists might increase serum sodium levels too rapidly, putting patients at risk for osmotic demyelination. Initial reports suggested that 20000 of arginine vasopressin in SIADH was independent of plasma osmolality.

Perioperative fluid therapy in children: Therapy of dysnatremic disorders. Prevention of Postoperative Hyponatremia Surgical procedures typically increase circulating levels of arginine vasopressin; nevertheless, hypotonic intravenous fluids are frequently administered perioperatively. The shaded area represents normal values of plasma AVP.

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.

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

A normal or elevated measured osmolality value, however, does not rule out hypotonic hyponatremia, because urea is an ineffective osmole. Combined fractional excretion of sodium and urea better predicts response to saline in hyponatremia than do usual clinical and biochemical parameters. Although hypotension has not been reported in association with conivaptan, it is a risk, because hyponatremua is a nonselective vasopressin-receptor antagonist; blocking the vasopressin V 1 receptor induces vasodilation.
