What Causes Hypernatremia?
Discussion Hypernatremia is a serum sodium of> 150 mEq/L. Basic causes are too much sodium or too little free water. If body weight is normal or increased, there is an increase in total body sodium without an appropriate increase in total body water. Normally when the serum sodium is increased there is transient hypertonicity of the plasma which causes the thirst center to be stimulated and antidiuretic hormone (ADH) to be released. The thirst center tells the person to drink more water and ADH causes the kidney to retain free water. This normally will allow the plasma tonicity to go back to normal. Treatment is by tr...

When two disasters saved Earth from a worse one
Hydrogen chloride from Mount Pinatubo could have caused serious damage to the ozone layer. We were saved by a typhoonIn June 1991 the Philippine volcano,Mount Pinatubo, blew its top in spectacular fashion, producing one of the greatest volcanic eruptions in the 20th Century. It is well known that this eruption, which killed around 800 people and left 10,000 homeless, ejected so much dust into the atmosphere that it had a major effect on climate, depressing global temperatures by around 0.5 °C for a couple of years. But what is less commonly known is that ifTyphoon Yunya hadn ’t coincided with the eruption, the im...
