  Sodium Concentration Correction for Hyperglycemia (Emmett 2013)(conventional or SI units)

 
Input
 
Measured plasma or serum sodium concentration  
Serum glucose  

 
Result
 
 
Estimated (corrected) plasma sodium*  
 
Decimal Precision  

 
     
 
Include literature references: Yes   No
 

 
*The estimated (corrected) plasma sodium is a rough estimate of how much the serum sodium concentration will rise as hyperglycemia is corrected.

 
Equations used
 
Estimated (corrected) plasma sodium* = Measured plasma or serum sodium concentration + (2 * (Serumglucose - 100) / 100)
