Abstract

Hyponatremia is the most common electrolyte disorder in hospitalized patients and may be associated with non negligible morbidity and mortality. Here we summerize its diagnostic approach based on the physiopathology. Assessment of volume status, measurement of plasma and urinary osmolality remain key steps in the management of this electrolyte disorder.
