Hyponatremia of Multiple Myeloma | Pseudohyponatremia of Multiple Myeloma is True Hyponatremia
Hyponatremia of Multiple Myeloma research study
What is the primary objective of this study?
Hypothesis: the hyponatremia of multiple myeloma (m.m.)is true and not pseudohyponatremia by
using the stewart approach to acid - base interpretation, would like to show that the
positive charged m- proteins produced in m.m.result in true hyponatremia.
Who is eligible to participate?
- patients with multiple myeloma
Which medical condition, disease, disorder, syndrome, illness, or injury is researched?
Hyponatremia of Multiple Myeloma
Interventions can include giving participants drugs, medical devices, procedures, vaccines, and other products that are either investigational or already available or noninvasive approaches such as surveys, education, and interviews.
Other:blood testblood test to measure levels of: sodium, albumin and acid - base status in venous blood.
Research studies and clinical trials typically have two or more research arms. An arm is a group of people who receive the same treatment in the study.
