Cardiac patients due to suffering from
uncontrolled hypertension or especially advanced heart
failure, are sometime advised to salt restriction during
hospitalization and even after discharge. A considerable
portion of this fragile patients concurrently underwent
intravenous antibiotic therapy on or during admission
for infectious syndromes such as urinary tract infection
or pneumonia. Both antibiotic vials and dissolvent
solution contain various amounts of sodium which is
harmful for this subset of cardiac patients, especially for
long term course. This brief review highlighted the
importance of considering sodium content of various
antibiotics vials and dissolvent fluids.
