ABSTRACT Despite the high incidence of hyponatremia, the correct approach to management, particularly in patients with severe hyponatremia (serum sodium of 120 mEq/L or less), is controversial. This article reviews two major consensus guidelines and recent studies that can help clinicians make evidence-based treatment decisions and reduce patient risk for iatrogenic osmotic demyelination from overly aggressive treatment.

Rebecca Boyle practices at the Stanford Hypertension Center, part of Stanford (Calif.) Healthcare. The author has disclosed no potential conflicts of interest, financial or otherwise.
