Electrolytes disorders are a common finding in patients with End stage liver disease (ESLD). Liver transplantation (OLT) is frequently associated with massive transfusion and fluid shifts in patients with renal dysfunction, and management of hyponatremla, hyperkalemia and hypervolemia are major concerns for anesthesiologists. This case describes a multimodal approach in treatment of combined severe hyponatremla, hperkalemia and hypervolemia.
