Summary of "A case of Osmotic demyelination syndrome despite normal rate of Sodium correction with good recovery."

The Osmotic demyelination syndrome (ODS) primarily occurs with rapid correction of severe hyponatraemia that has been present for more than two or three days. Some patients are, however at risk and can develop ODS at higher sodium concentration and lower rates of correction. A case of Osmotic demyelination Syndrome which developed despite an 'optimal' rate of correction of serum Sodium with good clinical outcome is described. The risk factors that contribute to development of ODS and strategies to prevent this complication are discussed, along with recommendations on how to manage this condition in hospital inpatients.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

RED BLOOD CELL sensitivity to change in OSMOTIC PRESSURE. When exposed to a hypotonic concentration of sodium in a solution, red cells take in more water, swell until the capacity of the cell membrane is exceeded, and burst.

A ubiquitous sodium salt that is commonly used to season food. It plays an important biological role in maintaining the osmotic tension of blood and tissues. The OSMOLAR CONCENTRATION this and other SALTS accounts for SALINITY which influences the types of organisms that live in an ENVIRONMENT.

A class of drugs that act by inhibition of sodium influx through cell membranes. Blockade of sodium channels slows the rate and amplitude of initial rapid depolarization, reduces cell excitability, and reduces conduction velocity.

The heart rate of the FETUS. The normal range at term is between 120 and 160 beats per minute.

Sodium or sodium compounds used in foods or as a food. The most frequently used compounds are sodium chloride or sodium glutamate.
