Resumen

CARRILLO-ESPER, Raúl; GONZALEZ-SALAZAR, Jorge A  y  CALVO-CARRILLO, Benjamín. Vasopressin Use in Shock. Gac. Méd. Méx [online]. 2004, vol.140, n.1, pp.71-76. ISSN 0016-3813.

Arginine-vasopresin (VP), also known as the antidiuretic hormone, is essential for water homeostasis. Its synthesis and liberation depends on regulation of osmotic, hypovolemic, hormonal, and nonosmotic stimuli. It has been demonstrated that it is key for maintenance of cardiovascular homeostasis through vasomotor regulation, the determinant of systemic vascular resistance and mean arterial pressure, a process acting through VI receptors. Shock state with refractary vasodilation seen in sepsis, systemic inflamatory response, hypovolemia, cardiac arrest, polytrauma, etc., is characterized by an initial phase of liberation and increased levels of VP followed by a second phase caracterized by inappropirately low levels of this hormone that are associated with refractariness to management with volume, inotropics, and vasopressors. It has been demonstrated in clinical and experimental studies that exogenous VP treatment under this condition increases systemic vascular resistance, perfusion pressure, and oxygen supply to peripheral tissues, which makes it possible to decrease and to suspend vasopressors and also to increase survival.

Palabras llave : Vasopressin; refractary shock; refractary vasodilatation states; cardiac arrest.
