Our target this 12 months used to be to air out suggestions and conclusions approximately high blood pressure, fluid-electrolytes, and tubulopathies. the celebrities have been Drs.

Mary Jane Jesse, Jacques Bourgoignie, and Carlos Vaamonde.

Example text

I disagree with the speakers that earlier presented their schemes of treatment. I always use isotonic saline to produce the expansion, whatever the type of dehydration. The Pediatric Resident doesn't care. Here comes the child and he/she puts the isotonic saline infusion. You have time--about one hour--to figure out the type, evaluate the signs, etc. It's a routine. The thing that changes is the amount of fluid; initially, we give 20-40 ml/kg if he is severely dehydrated, with marked signs of extracellular depletion.

One final comment about the correction of hypernatremic dehydration, at least from our experience. Often times, everything Hith the child Hi 11 proceed very nicely and Hill get dOHn to a sodium between 145 and 150 mEq/L and the treating physician 33 will say, "I'm home free, things are going well, let us begin to refeed the child". In most places people don't think much about it and they will give as the first feeding,dextrose and water. You've got a starving hungry child and he will gobble down eight ounces and the sodium will drop from 147 to 132 mEq/L.

I NE Representation of renal diluting mechanism. nephron is not completely watertight and some ADH-independent water reabsorption is impossible to quantitate or prevent. The error introduced by that phenomenon in the estimation of distal NaCI reabsorption is probably small, providing that a minimal urinary osmolality of about SO mOsm/L is present. The measurement of plasma arginine-vasopressin is a useful tool to validate that a higher urinary osmolality is due to a defect in distal NaCl reabsorption rather than to a situation of incomplete ADH suppression (4).
