Example text

Since total body sodium content is the primary determinant of extracellular volume, patients with low, normal, or high extracellular volumes have low, normal, or high total body sodium contents, respectively. Hyponatremia occurs due to an increase in total body water relative to total body sodium. D. Hyponatremia with Extracellular Volume Depletion In hypovolemic hyponatremia nonosmotic release of ADH occurs in response to hypovolemia. Despite serum hypoosmolality, circulating ADH causes urinary concentration, water retention, and hyponatremia.

6 ϫ Wgt (kg) ϫ [1Ϫ ([Na]/[Desired [Na])] The estimated time of correction can be calculated by dividing the desired change in sodium concentration by the goal rate of rise. Since there is no need to acutely correct the sodium concentration to a normal value, an increase in sodium concentration of 10% should be the initial goal. Division of the total body water excess by the estimated time of correction will result in the goal rate of water excretion. Low doses of loop diuretic are used to initiate diuresis.

Treatment A. Euvolemic Hyponatremia Most commonly, euvolemic hyponatremia develops slowly and is often relatively asymptomatic. The principal risk in adapted patients is not hyponatremia, per se. Rather it is overzealous correction that either decreases the serum sodium further or increases it too quickly. Accordingly, therapy for asymptomatic patients is conservative, consisting initially of water restriction and, if possible, removal of the inciting etiology. In most cases, restricting fluid intake to less than 1 L/24 hours will be sufficient to allow the sodium to rise slowly.
