CCU mortality

The authors overall hypothesis is that electrolytes (i.e. sodium, calcium, magnesium) abnormality is associated with mortality in the coronary care unit (CCU). Therefore, this hypothesis will be tested by addressing the following three specific aims; 1) to investigate the association of sodium level and mortality in the CCU; 2) to investigate the association of magnesium level and mortality in the CCU; and 3) to investigate the association of calcium level and mortality in the CCU.
