Objective: To describe the incidence and severity of hyponatremia after initiation of arginine vasopressin therapy in children recovering from cardiothoracic surgery, and to compare these patients with a control group with similar disease complexity and severity who did not receive arginine vasopressin. Design: Retrospective chart review. Setting: PICU at a tertiary care university hospital. Patients: Twenty-nine patients who received arginine vasopressin for at least 6 hours during the first… Expand
Clinical Associations of Early Dysnatremias in Critically Ill Neonates and Infants Undergoing Cardiac Surgery
TLDR
Dysnatremias are common in the early post-operative period in neonates and infants undergoing cardiac surgery and are associated with longer LOS and longer ventilation time in infants undergoing cardiovascular surgery, according to a retrospective cohort and single center study performed at Children's Hospital Colorado. Expand
Concurrent Use of Calcium Chloride and Arginine Vasopressin Infusions in Pediatric Patients with Acute Cardiocirculatory Failure
TLDR
Conurrent use of AVP and CaCl infusions may improve surrogates of cardiac output, and intensive care outcomes, and prevent organ dysfunction in children with AHF. Expand
Effects of Vasopressin Infusion After Pediatric Cardiac Surgery: A Meta-analysis
TLDR
A systematic review was conducted to identify studies characterizing the hemodynamic effects of vasopressin after pediatric cardiac surgery and findings vary in neonates and in those with functionally univentricular hearts although beneficial effects are noted in both. Expand
International Survey on the Use of Arginine Vasopressin in the Postoperative Management of Single Ventricle Patients
TLDR
Arginine vasopressin is used widely in the care of infants and children with single ventricle physiology after the first stage and subsequent palliative surgeries, and is still considered a second-line medication. Expand
Intraoperative administration of vasopressin during coronary artery bypass surgery is associated with acute postoperative kidney injury.
TLDR
Acute kidney injury is a common complication after cardiac surgery, and vasopressin use increases its incidence; however, this effect may rely on several clinical factors, and its true effect should be examined by large randomized trials. Expand
Vasopressin improves hemodynamic status in infants with congenital diaphragmatic hernia.
TLDR
The results suggest a potential role for vasopressin therapy in patients with CDH with catecholamine-resistant refractory hypotension and stabilized systemic hemodynamics without adverse effects on pulmonary hemodynamics in a subset of infants withCDH. Expand
Polyuria after cessation of vasopressin in a child after cardiac surgery.
A 3-year-old, 12.5-kg girl, who had a late diagnosis of transposition of the great vessels with atrial and ventricular septal defects, underwent pulmonary artery banding along with a Blalock-TaussigExpand
Acute Effects of Vasopressin Arginine Infusion in Children with Congenital Heart Disease: Higher Blood Pressure Does Not Equal Improved Systemic Oxygen Delivery
TLDR
Vasopressin infusions appear to statistically significantly increase systolic blood pressure in children with congenital heart disease who have a biventricular but not functionally univentricul circulation, and even when an increase in systolics blood pressure is present, systemic oxygen delivery did not improve. Expand
Hyponatremia With Intravenous Sulfamethoxazole/Trimethoprim in Children
TLDR
Furosemide was noted to be the medication most associated with hyponatremia and Clinicians should be aware of this potential adverse event when initiating IV SMX/TMP in children. Expand
Dosing of Vasopressin in Critically Ill Children: Implications for Medication Safety.
TLDR
It is the opinion that adopting one standard dosing unit for shock, diabetes insipidus, and gastrointestinal bleeding would lead to less confusion among providers, pharmacists, and nursing staff and reduce dosing errors. Expand

Early initiation of arginine vasopressin infusion in neonates after complex cardiac surgery*
TLDR
Low-dose arginine vasopressin infusion initiated in the operating room after complex neonatal cardiac surgery was associated with decreased fluid resuscitation and catecholamine requirements in the first 24 postoperative hours. Expand
Relative deficiency of arginine vasopressin in children after cardiopulmonary bypass*
TLDR
In some children undergoing open heart surgery, plasma arginine vasopressin concentration is relatively low at baseline and remains low after cardiopulmonary bypass regardless of hemodynamic stability and serum osmolality. Expand
Hospital-acquired hyponatremia in postoperative pediatric patients: Prospective observational study*
TLDR
The incidence of hyponatremia in pediatric surgical patients who received hypotonic saline at the rate suggested by the Holliday and Segar’s formula was high and progressive over time and negative sodium balance in the first 12 postoperative hours and then a positive fluid balance could be associated with the development of postoperative hypon atremia.

Hypotonic Versus Isotonic Maintenance Fluids After Surgery for Children: A Randomized Controlled Trial
TLDR
IsotonicPMS is significantly safer than hypotonic PMS in protecting against acute postoperative hyponatremia in children, and antidiuretic hormone levels and adverse events were not significantly different between the groups. Expand
Postoperative Hyponatremia despite Near-Isotonic Saline Infusion: A Phenomenon of Desalination
TLDR
Twenty-two women who had elective gynecologic surgery and received only intravenous near-isotonic fluid were studied, finding that the positive balance for electrolyte-free water that was necessary to induce the degree of hyponatremia was seen. Expand
Levels of vasopressin in children undergoing cardiopulmonary bypass*
TLDR
Children do not have deficient endogenous levels of vasopressin following bypass, and lower levels are not associated with hypotension, although a few persistently hypotensive patients had high levels subsequent to bypass. Expand
Clinical impact of vasopressin infusion on hemodynamics, liver and renal function in pediatric patients
TLDR
The data suggest that vasopressin is useful in states of vasodilatory shock with limitations regarding to its adverse renal effects and on platelet counts. Expand
Prevention of Hospital-Acquired Hyponatremia: Do We Have the Answers?
TLDR
For more than 50 years the standard of care for maintenance fluid therapy in children has been to administer hypotonic fluids, reflecting the daily urine and electrolyte losses of the average child, and the safety of this traditional approach was questioned. Expand

TLDR
The usefulness of vasoactive–inotropic score as an independent predictor of clinical outcome in infants after cardiac surgery may have important implications for future cardiothoracic intensive care unit research. Expand
Arginine-vasopressin in neonates with vasodilatory shock after cardiopulmonary bypass
TLDR
In neonates with vasodilatory shock after cardiopulmonary bypass AVP is a potent agent to increase blood pressure when traditional vasopressors are failing. Expand
