Indications of hypertonic saline

Hey :D

The only indications of hypertonic saline is when there is hyponatremia in the body severe enough to cause symptoms like mental status changes.
Hyponatremia can be caused by SIADH where the body is retaining so much water.

It can also be caused by cerebral salt wasting (CSW) syndrome.

Other states in which hypertonic saline could be useful and is under study are: 
- Brain injury
- Volume resusication in shock

That's all!
