The antidiuretic hormone response to therapy for acute asthma.

Abstract

The plasma antidiuretic hormone concentrations in eight asthmatic children were measured at the onset of an acute severe attack and were repeated 24 h later. Conventional therapy and maintenance fluid intake resulted in a significant fall in antidiuretic hormone concentrations without abnormal changes in other biochemical indicators of dehydration.
