Acute hyponatremic encephalopathy---how would you treat it?

There’s an interesting discussion of this topic over at Nephron Power with links to important review articles. Mention is made of bolus therapy with 100 cc of 3% saline, which I have previously mentioned here and elsewhere, as well as the use of DDAVP to “apply the brakes” on over correction if need be, which I mentioned here.
