Four hyponatraemia-related deaths deemed to be avoidable
A 14-year inquiry into five children’s deaths has published its report
The Inquiry into Hyponatraemia-related Deaths was established in 2004 following concerns about the treatment of three children – Adam Strain, Lucy Crawford and Raychel Ferguson – who had died in cases where hyponatraemia – low sodium in the blood – had caused or was a major factor in their deaths.
