Pathophysiology, impact, and management of hyponatremia.

J Hosp Med. 2012 Apr;7 Suppl 4:S1-5

Authors: Edmonds ZV

Abstract
Hyponatremia's effects can be insidious, particularly in patients with heart failure, cirrhosis, and pneumonia. Appreciating its prevalence in hospitalized patients, recognizing its symptoms, characterizing its etiology, and employing appropriate management promptly will help reduce morbidity and mortality among hyponatremic patients.
