  • BACKGROUND The association between postoperative hyponatremia (Na < 135 mEq/L) and outcomes after cardiac surgery has not been established. We studied the prevalence of postoperative hyponatremia and its effects on outcomes after cardiac surgery. STUDY DESIGN We studied 4,850 patients who underwent cardiac surgery from 2002 to 2008. We used multivariable logistic and Cox regression analysis to study the association between postoperative hyponatremia and mortality, length of hospital stay (LOS… CONTINUE READING
