Hyponatraemia in very low birth weight infants.

Ndwiga DN, Were FN, Musoke RN. "Hyponatraemia in very low birth weight infants." East Afr Med J. 2002;79(3):120-3.


Infants less than 1500 grams at birth have been demonstrated to be particularly prone to development of low levels of serum sodium often leading to increased early neonatal morbidity and mortality. No local study has been done to quantify this problem among sick newborns. Studies elsewhere demonstrate a high incidence of hyponatraemia among such preterms.
