Authors' reply to a letter about the sodium equation.

What is it about?

The new sodium equation explicitly includes a rate of serum [Na] correction, to help make the treatment of hyponatremia or hypernatremia safer. Also, the equation is the first that can calculate a dose of salt tablets.

Why is it important?

The treatment of dysnatremia can be more quantitative and safer for the patient.

We built upon the knowledge gained from the previous sodium equations and look forward to seeing more research and future sodium equations.
