Anoxic Brain Injury Secondary to Metabolic Encephalopathy
Syndrome of inappropriate antidiuretic hormone (SIADH) is a condition in which the body has normal adrenal cortical function and normal systemic sodium levels, but an "inappropriate" concentration of antidiuretic hormone (ADH) in relation to body fluid osmolality. SIADH is a fairly common condition, accounting for up to one-third of all cases hyponatremia. It can be caused by a variety of conditions, including brain trauma, hormone-producing neoplasms advanced age (idiopathic), genetics, nervous system or pulmonary disorders, medications, endocrine disease, immunosuppressive disease, and activities such as endurance exercise.
