If severe neurologic symptoms (seizures, obtundation, or coma) are present, 3% NaCl may be infused at 4 to 6 mL/kg/hour. 2% NaCl (50 mL) has been used safely. Serum electrolytes should be carefully monitored. Chronic Symptomatic Hyponatremia. If hyponatremia has been present for more than 48 hours or the duration is unknown, correction must be handled carefully. Whether it is the rate of correction of hyponatremia or the magnitude that predisposes to osmotic demyelination is unknown, but in practice dissociating the two is difficult, because a rapid correction rate usually means a greater correction over a given period of time.

In the absence of translocational hyponatremia or pseudohyponatremia, the most important initial step in the diagnosis of hyponatremia is an assessment of the ECF volume status. Sodium is the primary cation in the ECF compartment. Therefore, sodium, with its accompanying anions, dictates ECF osmolality and fluid volume. Hence, ECF volume provides the best index of total body exchangeable sodium. A careful physical examination focused on the evaluation of ECF volume status therefore allows for the classification of the hyponatremic patient into one of three categories: (a) hyponatremia in the presence of an excess of total body sodium (hypervolemic hyponatremia), (b) hyponatremia in the presence of a deficit of total body sodium (hypovolemic hyponatremia), and (c) hyponatremia with a near-normal total body sodium (euvolemic hyponatremia).

Under physiologic conditions, the concentration of sodium in plasma is kept in a very narrow range, between 138 and 142 mEq/L, despite great variations in water intake. Because sodium is the predominant cation in extracellular fluid (ECF), this reflects the equally narrow range in which the tonicity (osmolality) of body fluids is regulated, between 280 and 290 mOsm/kg. 8 Serum sodium concentration and plasma osmolality are maintained in these normal ranges by the function of arginine vasopressin (AVP) and a very sensitive osmoreceptor that controls the secretion of this antidiuretic hormone.
