Central pontine myelinolysis (CPM) is a neurological disorder with a variety of manifestations which may be fatal or result in permanent disabilities. Various factors, most commonly too rapid correction of serum sodium, have been implicated in the development of this osmotic demyelinating syndrome. The patient's survival depends on accurate assessment and prompt intervention by the neuroscience nurse. Optimal outcome depends on collaboration by all members of the health care team.
