The challenge of hyponatremia.
Patients with severe acute symptomatic hyponatremia must be managed in the intensive care unit. Formulas may overcorrect the serum sodium so one must use clinical judgment and monitor the serum sodium, intake and output very closely during the critical period.
Whenever using intravenous solutions post operatively, check serum electrolytes at least daily.
All calculations must be checked for accuracy and confirmed before use, clinical or otherwise. The urine output may increase dramatically during correction, leading to over correction Over correction may result in osmotic demyelination, and although this may not be initially apparent, can be a very serious complication.
Nephrologists must monitor electrolytes and fluid output very closely. Neither licensor nor its associated hyponatreemia or other entities warrant the accuracy of any information provided by or resulting from the technology or the content for clinical management, and licensee or user agree that no such persons or entities shall be liable for any adverse consequences resulting from the use of any of the same.
Do not exceed guidelines for correction.
Avoid hypotonic fluids after surgery. All medical decisions must be based upon the clinical judgment of a licensed physician. Electrolytes need to be checked frequently, and fluids adjusted as needed.
Consult a nephrologist early.
