Fluid selection and rate of administration must be carefully evaluated in these patients. 5 mEq/L/hr, or 10–12 mEq/L/24 hr. This is because the body responds to protect the brain from dehydration by making idiogenic osmoles to maintain cerebral water balance, similar to what happens in hypernatremic conditions.

It is important to note that the hypochloremia will not resolve if hypokalemia is present: both must be addressed simultaneously.
