Hyponatremia?A Predictor of Short Term Mortality in Acute ST Segment Elevation Myocardial Infarction (STEMI)
To study the prevalence of hyponatremia in a case of acute ST segment elevation myocardial infarction. To study the relationship between severity of hyponatremia and short term mortality. To determine the prognostic importance of hyponatremia in a case of acute ST segment elevation myocardial infarction. 50 patients admitted in the Intensive care unit of Sree Balaji Medical College and Hospital between November 2017 to July 2019, with acute ST segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) were included in this prospective study Along with other risk factors, hyponatremia on admission or early development of hyponatremia appeared to be a significant independent risk factor in predicting short term mortality in acute myocardial infarction.
