Hypernatremia (sodium > 149 mmol/L, is common in intensive care units. Mortality rates of patients presenting with hypernatremia on admission were 39% and that developed after admission, 43%, compared to patients without hypernatremia were 24% (p<0.01). Length of stay was also longer, 20 days in patients with hypernatremia compared to 8 days in patients without hypernatremia(p<0.001). Therefore strategies to prevent hypernatremia should be encouraged. Lindner G et.al. Hypernatremia in the critically ill is an independent risk factor for mortality. AJKD. 2007. 5(6):952-957
