Example text

Represents an injection of aqueous vasopressin administered after 5% or more body weight is lost as a result of the unabated diuresis. The urine does show mild concentrating ability with dehydration, but less than 10% change in concentration following vasopressin administration. 900 800 partially resistant to the antidiuretic effect of vasopressin and can concentrate their urine to some degree if the plasma levels of the hormone are quite high (Robertson and Scheidler, 1981). Because the standard diagnostic dose of aqueous AVP customarily produces marked hypervasopressinemia, patients with partial resistance may respond in this phase of the modified water deprivation test as though they had CDI (Zerbe and Robertson, 1981).

Frequent monitoring of serum electrolyte concentrations, with appropriate adjustments in the type of fluid administered and rate of fluid administration, is important in the successful management of hypernatremia. It is much simpler to avoid these complications by careful monitoring during water deprivation. Plasma Vasopressin Determinations The direct assay of plasma AVP substantially improves the accuracy of conventional tests used in the differential diagnosis of polyuria in humans (Zerbe and Robertson, 1981).

Phase I of the Test The water deprivation test should always be started at the beginning of the workday, because animals undergoing this test must be observed and evaluated frequently. Most dogs and cats with CDI or primary NDI dehydrate and lose 3% of their body weight (end point for this phase of the test) within 3 to 10 hours (see Table 1-4). Withholding water and leaving the dog or cat with diabetes insipidus unattended for several hours or throughout the night may result in the development of severe complications and possibly death (see Complications of the Modified Water Deprivation Test: Hypertonic Dehydration and Hypernatremia).
