Since finishing my training, I've learned three new techniques for the management of hyponatremia: the DDAVP clamp, use of hypertonic bicarbonate, and oral urea. Meanwhile, I've removed the use of vaptans from my practice and grown more comfortable using 3% saline. The confluence of these factors has transformed hyponatremia from something scary to something which is comfortably manageable. This chapter aims to present a throughly modern approach to hyponatremia, integrating the safest and most reliable therapies.
