natriuresis

 [na″tre-u-re´sis]
the excretion of sodium in the urine; see also salt wasting and salt-losing crisis (syndrome).

na·tri·u·re·sis

(nā'trē-yū-rē'sis),
Urinary excretion of sodium; commonly designates enhanced sodium excretion, which may occur in certain diseases or as a result of the administration of diuretic drugs.
[natrium + G. ouron, urine]

natriuresis

/na·tri·ure·sis/ (na″tre-ūr-e´sis) excretion of sodium in the urine, particularly in excessive amounts.
pressure natriuresis  increased urinary excretion of sodium along with water when arterial pressure increases; a compensatory mechanism to maintain blood pressure within the normal range.

natriuresis

(nā′trə-yo͝o-rē′sĭs)
n.
Excretion of excessive amounts of sodium in the urine.

na′tri·u·ret′ic (-rĕt′ĭk) adj.

natriuresis

[nā′trēyoo͡rē′sis]
Etymology: L, natrium, sodium; Gk, ouresis, urination
the excretion of greater than normal amounts of sodium in the urine. The condition may result from the administration of natriuretic diuretic drugs or from various metabolic or endocrine disorders.

natriuresis

The excretion of sodium by the kidneys, which is controlled in large part by atrial natriuretic peptide (ANP). ANP may increase the glomerular filtration rate by binding to ANP receptors on glomerular mesangial cells, causing them to relax, thereby increasing the effective surface area available for filtration.

na·tri·u·re·sis

(nā'trē-yū-rē'sis)
Urinary excretion of sodium; commonly designates enhanced sodium excretion, which may occur in certain diseases or as a result of the administration of diuretic drugs.

natriuresis

Excretion of sodium by the kidneys.

natriuresis (nāˈ·tr·yōō·rēˑ·sis),

n the secretion of increased amounts of sodium in urine. It may be due to endocrine or metabolic conditions, or due to the use of natriuretic diuretic medications.

natriuresis

the excretion of abnormal amounts of sodium in the urine.

It has been demonstrated that a shift of the chronic salt-loading pressure natriuresis curve to a higher pressure level is a common feature of all forms of established hypertension.
Both factors lead to natriuresis or excretion of sodium with subsequent serum hyponatremia.
Thus, it is unlikely that the observed changes in salt and water excretions were due to effects other than the direct renal action of NE and Ang II since the shift in MAP following NE and Ang II administration was associated with typical antidiuretic and antinatriuretic responses rather than pressure diuresis and natriuresis.
The observed diuresis and natriuresis following removal of renal sympathetic tone have been reported in studies from our research group and several other studies on acute and chronic renal denervation (17,18,24,25).
Bradykinin promotes natriuresis and vasodilation in the vascular endothelium.
Natriuresis may also occur due to CHQ-induced synthesis of nitric oxide, which inhibits renal [Na.
89) Another report demonstrated that 3 hours of GLP-1 infusion in the same doses used in the previous study (89) induced natriuresis in healthy and in insulin-resistant obese men.
When injected intravenously into the blood, ularitide appears to cause diuresis (urine output) and natriuresis (sodium excretion), as well as vasodilation.
The presence of unprocessed prohormone in the blood of HF patients suffering from insufficient natriuresis and diuresis remains an unexplained phenomenon.
The use of heparin also contributes to the condition by way of aldosterone suppression, natriuresis, and reduced potassium excretion.
Continued improvement for three months after ultrafiltration, without significant medication changes, suggests that ultrafiltration improved natriuresis and diuresis.
The function of ANP and BNP is to regulate blood pressure and maintain salt-water balance by promoting natriuresis, diuresis, and vasodilation (1).
