The 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.

A year-old woman noted an unpleasant, sweet taste in her mouth.

In a double-blind, randomized trial, in patients assigned to conivaptan for 4 days, as compared with those assigned to placebo, the serum sodium levels increased by 6 mmol per liter. The treatment of hyponatremia: Treating the syndrome of inappropriate ADH secretion with isotonic saline.

Causes and management of hyponatremia. Ellison reports receiving research grants from Chemica Technologies, and Dr. N Engl J Med ; Adapted from Robertson, 7 with the permission of the publisher. To date, this complication has not been reported, but trials of these agents have involved very close monitoring and minimal or no water restriction.


J Am Soc Nephrol ; Because dysgeusia is a rare manifestation of hyponatremia, her serum sodium level was tested and was mmol per liter.

NEJM — The Syndrome of Inappropriate Antidiuresis

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

These agents frequently cause dry mouth and thirst, 36 which stimulate water intake, slowing the rise in serum sodium levels. Hyppnatremia in nephrology and hypertension: Fluid restriction, estimated on the basis of levels of urinary and plasma electrolytes Figure 2is a cornerstone of therapy. The shaded area represents normal values of plasma Hyponstremia.

Use of these agents in practice would require hypnatremia close monitoring of serum sodium levels.

Cerebral Salt Wasting SIAD may be difficult to distinguish from cerebral salt wasting, a syndrome of hyponatremia and extracellular-fluid volume depletion in patients with insults to the central nervous system.

Hypouricemia, inappropriate secretion of antidiuretic hormone, and small cell carcinoma of the lung. Br J Anaesth ; J Neurosurg Anesthesiol ; Summary and Recommendations The patient described in the vignette apparently has chronic hyponatremia attributable to SIAD; she has no neurologic symptoms. 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.

Alternatively, conivaptan might be used to increase the serum sodium level, although clinical experience with vasopressin-receptor antagonists remains very limited. Other formulas incorporate amounts of salt and water infused and excreted 3940 ; these add precision, but at the price of complexity.

Some reports suggest a high risk if patients are not treated aggressively 29 ; others suggest that rapid correction increases morbidity or mortality. When the hyponatremia is chronic and asymptomatic, a diagnosis can be pursued before treatment is initiated. Treating the underlying cause in this case, small-cell lung cancer is the definitive means of correcting the hyponatremia.
