Endocrine emergencies are often potentially life-threatening and are easy to overlook, especially in patients without a history of endocrinologic disease. Emergencies of the endocrine system are relatively infrequent in clinical practice. Correct management requires prompt recognition and treatment, often without supporting laboratory studies. Understanding the underlying pathophysiologic mechanisms of these acute states of hormone excess or deficiency assists in establishing the correct diagnosis and initiating the proper therapy.
On the other hand, electrolyte and fluid imbalances are commonly observed in the inpatient setting, especially in critically ill patients. These patients are often asymptomatic. However, in severe cases, they can present with muscle weakness, nausea, vomiting, neurological alterations, or cardiac emergencies. After a precise history (including drug prescriptions) has been obtained from the patient or their relatives, determining acid-base status, hydration status, and plasma and urine osmolality, and, of course, electrolyte levels are important first steps for evaluating etiology and extent of disease. The rate of correction of the electrolyte disorder is often very important as well, as therapy can cause more severe damage than the disease itself.
