SODIUM CHLORIDE

Sodium chloride; Electrolyte Supplement; Inj: 0.45% (77 mEq/L), 0.9% (154 mEq/L), 3% (513 mEq/L), 5% (855 mEq/L), 23.4% (4 mEq/mL)
Tab: 650 mg (11.3 mEq), 1000 mg (17 mEq), 2250 mg (38.5 mEq)
Tab SR: 600 mg (10.3 mEq); Maintenance Sodium Requirements (PO/IV): 3-4 mEq/kg/day (max 100-150 mEq/day)
Acute Hyponatremia: mEq sodium = [desired sodium (mEq/L)-actual sodium (mEq/L)] x 0.6 x wt (kg); usual desired sodium goal for acute correction is
125 mEq/L
Normal saline = 0.9% = 154 mEq/L. Maximum infusion rate is 1 mEq/kg/hr.
