Clinical approach of patients with sodium disturbances - for Nurses
Goals of the lecture will be able to appropriately treat hyponatremia and hypernatremia, with both acute and chronic changes. We will review the sodium and water balance physiology, discussing triggers and effectors for the anti-diuretic hormone (ADH). We will discuss practical dysnatremia management and discuss consequences and side effects of those treatments by focusing of the clinical management of 4 cases: acute hyponatremia, chronic hyponatremia, acute hypernatremia and chronic hyponatremia.
