    Does anyone have a protocol for managing chemotherapy hydration for ifosfamide for patients with diabetes insipidus on DDAVP? I feel like we are always re-inventing our process each time we get a patient like this and wondered if other centers have a more defined process.

    Thanks so much for your help!
