Factor which will increase ADH secretion;
A.right heart failure
B.weightlessness
C.infusion of water
D. drinking or infusion of 1 lt of Nacl solution
E. taking ethanol

answer -d
I think of a Nacl solution as increasing plasma osmolarity(Im assuming thats hypertonic saline)therefore increasing ADH
ETOH& H2O decreases it,weightlessness probably keeps it the same


if that is isotonic saline I go with R heart failure since that may cause pooling of bood-mimicking volume depletion and increasing ADH :shock:

correct,its D smiling face
