hayayahApparently, in chronic CHF you see hyponatremia. Because CHF causes a decrease in cardiac output and circulating blood volume, which in turn triggers a compensatory response aimed at preserving blood pressure. This stimulates the body to retain both water and sodium. +22019-05-28T22:24:14Z
seagulli agree with Hayayah... the RAAS system is activated due to poor perfusion to the kidney due to decomp heart failure. +32019-06-01T03:32:28Z

jooceman739My thinking is that ANP causes natriuresis, so you're losing salt and water at the same time (isoosmotic fluid?). Meanwhile, ADH absorbs only free water, so it would dilute the serum.
Correct me if i'm wrong. +72019-06-08T21:42:02Z
bubblesOhhh you are right. Thank you for the explanation! I got so fixated on that one mechanism haha.+22019-06-08T22:03:55Z
