Uropres can be used only by intranasal application. Before applying drops on the mucosa, it is necessary to clean the nasal passages.
One drop of Uropres contains 5 μg of the active ingredient.
- For patients with diabetes insipidus, with polyuria after trauma, and with a pathological thirst of central origin, the amount of Uropres is selected individually. The optimal dose is from 10 to 20 mcg up to 2 times a day. In childhood (over 12 months), a single dosage is 10 μg up to 2 times a day. If during the treatment period there are signs of fluid retention in the tissues, then Uropres is temporarily canceled until the dosage is completely corrected.
- To carry out express diagnostics adhere to such dosages:
- adult patients - 40 mcg;
- Children of the first year of life - 10 mcg;
- children over 12 months. - 20 mcg.
Express diagnostics is prescribed in order to differentiate diabetes insipidus and polyuria cider, or in order to evaluate the concentration renal function, which can be disrupted in connection with infectious pathologies of the urinary system. In addition, this diagnostic method can be used in the early stages of tubulointerstitial pathology - for example, when afflicted with lithium-based medicines, anesthetics, chemotherapy agents or immunosuppressors.
Express diagnostics are most often conducted in the morning. For twelve hours after the procedure, it is important to limit the patient's drinking regimen. For children under the age of five and for patients with high blood pressure or coronary diseases, fluid intake is cut by 50%.
Before the start of the rapid diagnostic procedure, the osmotic concentration of urinary fluid is necessarily assessed. After the administration of Uropres, two urine samples are collected (for example, 2 and 4 hours later). The "first" urine, which is collected during the first hour, pours out. The remaining two samples determine the osmotic concentration.
Small indicators, lack of growth or a slight increase in the indices indicate a disordered concentration of the kidneys. If, however, the osmotic concentration increases to a large extent and the amount of urine decreases, this may mean that an increase in daily diuresis is related to diabetes insipidus of central origin.
