1. There is no difference in overcorrection rate when using slow continuous infusion or rapid intermittent bolus administration of hypertonic saline to correct hyponatremia. 2. Use of a rapid intermittent bolus strategy is associated with a lower incidence of requiring relowering therapy and with an increased incidence of achieving target...

Image: PD 1. Hospitalized children receiving hypotonic maintenance intravenous fluids (mIVF) were more likely to develop hyponatremia when compared to patients receiving isotonic mIVF. 2. No differences in incidence of hypernatremia were reported when comparing hypotonic to isotonic mIVF. Evidence Rating Level: 1 (Excellent) Study Rundown: Electrolyte imbalances, particularly concerning sodium, are common...
