Herein, how is post obstructive diuresis treated?
Treatment / Management Intravenous (IV) fluid support should be normal saline and limited to no more than 75% of the prior 1 to 2-hour urine production to avoid stimulation of further diuresis. Urine osmolality can be estimated from the specific gravity.
Also Know, what causes osmotic diuresis? Osmotic diuresis is the increase of urination rate caused by the presence of certain substances in the small tubes of the kidneys. The excretion occurs when substances such as glucose enter the kidney tubules and cannot be reabsorbed (due to a pathological state or the normal nature of the substance).
Considering this, is urinary retention obstructive uropathy?
Obstructive uropathy occurs when urine cannot drain through the urinary tract. Urine backs up into the kidney and causes it to become swollen. Obstructive uropathy can affect one or both kidneys. It can occur suddenly, or be a long-term problem.
What is acute retention of urine?
Acute urinary retention (AUR) is the inability to voluntarily pass urine. It is the most common urologic emergency . In men, AUR is most often secondary to benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH); AUR is rare in women [2,3]. This topic will review issues related to evaluation and management of AUR.
