Abstract

Measurements of sodium and potassium are among the most frequent analyses in the clinical laboratory. In our 700 bed hospital sodium and potassium analyses account for 18% of all analyses and 28% of these are “stat” analyses. 90% are analyses of serum (or plasma or whole blood), 9% urine, and 1% other body fluids.
