Electrolyte measurements, including sodium and potassium are of vital importance in monitoring the infusion of mannitol.
The cardiovascular status of the patient should be carefully evaluated before rapidly administering Mannitol since sudden expansion of the extracellular fluid may lead to fulminating congestive heart failure.
