Abstract Background
Electrolyte imbalance is a serious complication in children hospitalized with severe pneumonia. Monitoring of serum electrolyte levels is very essential to prevent the complications leading to increased morbidity and mortality.
Aims and Objectives
To assess serum electrolyte levels in children having severe pneumonia.
Materials and Methods
This descriptive, cross-sectional study involved the assessment of serum electrolyte levels in 21 children aged 2-59 months admitted at Rajindra Hospital, Patiala, between July 2014-August 2015 for the treatment of severe pneumonia.
Results
Children with severe pneumonia were found to have hyponatremia, hypokalemia and hyperkalemia.
Conclusion
Electrolyte disturbances are commonly seen in pneumonia cases, so we should monitor them properly while treating them to avoid complications.
