Some reports suggest a high risk if patients are not treated aggressively 29 ; others suggest that rapid correction increases morbidity or mortality.


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

A lab error due to the way sodium is measured.

About the Creator Nicolaos E. Overly hyponatrenia correction, particularly in chronic hyponatremia, can lead to osmotic demylination syndrome ODSpreviously known as central pontine myelinolysis CPM.

One theoretical concern is that vasopressin-receptor antagonists might increase serum sodium levels too rapidly, putting patients at risk for osmotic demyelination. Current prescriptions for the correction of hyponatraemia and hypernatraemia: Support Care Cancer ;8: Please fill out required fields.

The rate of change in serum sodium levels must be monitored every 2 to 3 hours, and the infusion adjusted as needed.
