Answer:

Sodium. Serum hyperglycemia can cause dilutional hyponatremia. This hyponatremia usually self-corrects with hyperglycemia treatment and does not require additional intervention.

Answer D is processed hepatically and unless liver function tests are elevated, the acetaminophen is safe to give in this scenario. Answer E is also safe to give unless the furosemide infusion has made the patient hypotensive, in which case the beta-blocker should be held per hold parameter instructions).
