OBJECTIVE Maternal 1-deamino-[8-D-arginine] vasopressin (a selective antidiuretic agonist) and oral water loading decrease maternal and fetal plasma osmolality and markedly increase fetal urine flow in sheep. We hypothesized that a titrated reduction in maternal plasma osmolality would increase human amniotic fluid volume. STUDY DESIGN Pregnant women (n = 5) with oligohydramnios at term were administered oral water loading (20 ml/kg) and intravenous 1-deamino-[8-D-arginine] vasopressin (2… CONTINUE READING
