Background and aim: ST Elevation Myocardial Infarction (STEMI) occurs from occlusion of one or more of the coronary arteries due to abrupt disruption of blood flow which is usually due to plaque rupture, erosion, fissuring, or dissection of coronary arteries that results in an obstructing thrombus. Hyponatremia is a common electrolyte disturbance that is seen frequently in clinical practice. It is also common in patients with myocardial infarction. We tried to study the association between hyponatremia and the severity of STEMI. Materials and methods: A hospital-based study was done on patients of STEMI fitting in inclusion and exclusion criteria attending the OPD/IPD of Mahatma Gandhi Hospital, Jaipur, Rajasthan, India. Results: STEMI patients with hyponatremia had reduced ejection fraction as compared to nonhyponatremic patients. Conclusion: This study concluded that in STEMI patients, decreased sodium levels can be an indicator of worse prognosis as compared to patients with normal sodium levels.
