Abstract
Background: Electrolyte imbalance is an important cause of mortality and morbidity in cerebro vascular accident.Timely treatment can decrease the mortality. Objective: To study the electrolyte disturbances including serum and urinary sodium, potassium and chlorides in acute stroke with its comparison in ischaemic and haemorrhagic stroke. Methods: Serum electrolytes (sodium potassium and chlorides) and urinary electrolytes were investigated in 50 acute stroke patients in a tertiary care hospital.The data was analysed using Chi-square test using SPSS (Statistical package for social science) software. Results: Mean age of the patients was 54years.23 patients (46.0%) had haemorrhagic stroke and 27 (54.0%) had ischaemic stroke. 25 (50.0%) had dyselectrolytaemia which is statistically significant (p = 0.047).10 (37.0%) ischaemic stroke patients and 6 (26.1%) haemorrhagic stroke patients had hyponatremia which is significant (p= 0.048). Conclusion: Hyponatremia was found more in ischemic strokes. [Meenakshi K NJIRM 2017; 8(4):23-26]

Key words: cerebrovascular accident, electrolyte imbalance.

List of Journals Indexed for MEDLINE

The List of Journals Indexed for MEDLINE publication ceased with the 2008 edition. The NLM Catalog can be used to obtain a list of currently indexed MEDLINE titles; select the Limit for Current Subsets called "Currently indexed in MEDLINE."

The List of Serials Indexed for Online Users online publication is designed to provide bibliographic information for serials from which articles are indexed with the MeSH® vocabulary and cited in MEDLINE®, the backbone of the NLM PubMed® database. More detailed bibliographic data and information about indexing coverage for serials cited in MEDLINE/PubMed can be found in LocatorPlus®, the NLM online catalog, and the NLM Catalog, an Entrez database.

Journals Recently Accepted by NLM for Inclusion in MEDLINE lists titles selected by LSTRC which meets three times per year in February, June, and October. Results from those meetings appear online about six weeks after each meeting, both on the Web page and in the NLM Catalog.

Previous print versions of the List of Journals Indexed for MEDLINE might be available from the U.S. Government Printing Office (GPO). Information about ordering documents from GPO is available at http://www.nlm.nih.gov/pubs/pubcat.html#ordering.
