Observations on post-traumatic antidiuresis

  • Michael P. Brady


Antidiuresis is one of the fundamental responses of the living organism to injury. The ensuing oliguric phase is transient and is rapidly succeeded by a diuresis. During the oliguric phase the kidney is more liable to injury from certain nephrotoxins. Therapeutic modification of this phase is now possible using agents which have been introduced in the last ten years. Definitive evidence of the efficacy of these materials is awaited.
