Abstract: Short- and long-term prognostic value of hyponatremia in acute coronary syndrome concluded that, hyponatremia has a significant prognostic value for short- and long-term adverse events in patients with acute coronary syndrome. Thus, the dynamic monitoring of serum sodium levels may help to identify and risk stratify for optimal management. The study population consists of 100 consecutive patients presenting with acute ST elevation myocardial infarction admitted in Tertiary care Hospital for a period of 12 months. Detailed history was taken and complete physical examination was done.Patients with hyponatremia on admission had lightly higher percentage (23%) that is 3 deaths in 13 patients and patients with hyponatremia within 72 h had 2 deaths among 14 patients (14.28%). Our study showed 25.9% of mortality in hyponatremia associated acute ST -elevation patients. Goldberg et al. in their study found 24% mortality.
