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. Initially, the urinary volume, sodium, and potassium concentration should be measured hourly. Urinary, sodium, potassium, and water losses exceeding the goal rate should be corrected intravenously.

Renal loss of hypotonic fluid frequently occurs due to the effect of loop diuretics but may be associated with osmotic diuresis due to glucose with severe hyperglycemia or urea associated with high protein tube feedings. Massive urinary losses are seen in some patients following the relief of a prolonged urinary tract obstruction or during the polyuric recovery phase of acute tubular necrosis. As in hypovolemic hyponatremia, urinary electrolytes are helpful in clarifying the source of fluid loss if it is not clinically apparent.

E. Hyponatremia with Normal Extracellular Volume Euvolemic hyponatremia is the most common form of hyponatremia in hospitalized patients. Normally, euvolemic hyponatremia develops due to inadequate urinary dilution evidenced by an inappropriately elevated urine osmolality (urine osmolality > 100 mOsm/kg H2O). 1. Syndrome of inappropriate antidiuretic hormone release—SIADH is the commonest cause of euvolemic hyponatremia but remains a diagnosis of exclusion (Table 3–1). Under normal circumstances, in the setting of hypoosmolality and euvolemia, ADH is maximally suppressed and urine is maximally dilute.
