Achieving Treatment Success for Patients with Heart Failure Complicated by Hyponatremia
Effective Date: 10/15/2012
Expiration Date: 10/14/2014
Hyponatremia is very difficult to treat in patients with heart failure, and improved treatment strategies represent an urgent clinical need. Recently, vasopressin has emerged as a therapeutic target in the management of hyponatremia. Vasopressin is a central modulator in hyponatremia, underscoring the importance of antagonizing vasopressin at its receptors in patients with hyponatremia and underlying heart failure. Guidelines for the treatment of hyponatremia have been published by several professional associations. The varying recommendations and emerging data on treatment options create challenges for practitioners caring for patients with hyponatremia. Recognizing the possible consequences of unmanaged hyponatremia in heart failure patients and implementing appropriate treatment strategies are critical steps toward improving outcomes in patients with hyponatremia.
