dc.description.abstract: Hyponatremia is a common problem in heart failure (HF) patients but, unfortunately, studies reported that it is still rarely recognised or treated adequately. This research was aimed to investigate current management of hy-ponatremia in patients hospitalised from HF at the study site. This research was conducted at Fatmawati Hospital in Jakarta, Indonesia, by including patients hospitalised from HF during 2011 – 2013. Specific information on patients’ information and the administered treatments was only retrieved from medical records. Among 464 patients included in this study, hyponatremia was found in 19% on admission and 22% during hospitalization but 58.8% of 102 hyponatremic patients during hospitalization did not receive specific treatment. Sodium chloride-based treatments were the only administered treatment options in which normal saline was commonly (20.6%) administered to patients with mild hyponatremia. Hyponatremia has been addressed and treatments have been administered but more than half of the hyponatremic patients still did not receive any active treatment.
