PTU-113 A Regional Audit Of The Management Of Patients With Decompensated Liver Disease
Na fell in 34/60 patients (57%) and was less likely if baseline hyponatraemia existed (38% VS 74% p = 0.004). A fall of ≥5mmol/l occurred in 23%. Median time to nadir Na was 3 days and time to recovery to pre-treatment Na was 6.5 days. No complications of hyponatremia were observed. Patients with VB were more likely (vs HRS patients) to have any fall in Na or a ≥5mmol/l reduction (68% vs 47% p = 0.1 and 32% vs 16% p = 0.12 respectively) but failed to reach significance. Mortality was 22%doi:10.1136/gutjnl-2014-307263.187 fatcat:pw7od637ardslejkxun3dy2cka
