Summary
Brief summary
This study will assist in providing knowledge about the amount of salt being administered to patients admitted to the intensive care unit, who require support from a breathing machine. This information, along with the patients’ daily salt balance will provide the basis for further studies looking at interventions aimed at reducing the amount of salt administered during a patients stay in Intensive care and any influence salt balance may play in clinically important patient outcomes
