This disorder, which includes both central pontine and extrapontine myelinolysis, begins with lethargy and affective changes generally after initial improvement of hyponafremia symptoms with treatmentfollowed by mutism or dysarthria, spastic quadriparesis, and pseudobulbar palsy.

Treating the underlying cause in this case, small-cell lung cancer is the definitive means of correcting the hyponatremia. Should be done in ICU.


Sodium Correction Rate in Hyponatremia and Hypernatremia – MDCalc

These agents frequently cause dry mouth and thirst, 36 which stimulate water intake, slowing the rise in serum sodium levels. Both sodium and plasma osmolality are low. One theoretical concern is that vasopressin-receptor antagonists might increase serum sodium levels too rapidly, putting patients at risk for osmotic demyelination.

If ADH independent, specific gravity is 1. 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. J Clin Endocrinol Metab ; Acute renal failure or CKD: Alternatively, conivaptan might be used to increase the serum sodium level, although clinical experience with vasopressin-receptor antagonists remains very limited.

Vasopressin-Receptor Antagonist Therapy A more recent option for treating SIAD is conivaptan Vaprisol, Astellas Pharmaa vasopressin-receptor antagonist approved by the Food and Drug Administration in for intravenous treatment of euvolemic hyponatremia nwjm and approved in hyponayremia intravenous treatment of hypervolemic hyponatremia 35 Table 3.
