Advice

Correct hyponatremia carefully. Use with the Sodium Deficit in Hyponatremia calculator which estimates the total amount of sodium that needs to be replaced. Do not forget to correct the hypoonatremia level in hyperglycemic patients with the Sodium Correction for Hyperglycemia calculator. Typically hypertonic solutions are reserved for patients that are overly symptomatic, such as seizures and severe neurologic deficits.
