The basic principle of potentiometry is the same in both methods, but the indirect method uses an assumption that makes its use flawed under conditions of hyperlipidemia or hyperproteinemia.
The low sodium concentration was found to be a result of pseudohyponatremia, an artificially low measurement of sodium concentration produced by the presence of severe hyperproteinemia.

The mild hyperproteinemia and mild hypercalcemia were likely associated with hemoconcentration caused by dehydration.
Pseudohyponatremia, a laboratory artifact, can be caused by hyperlipidemia and hyperproteinemia, which displaces water to produce falsely low sodium values when it is measured with indirect diluted ion-selective electrode methods (3).

Indirect ion-specific electrode measurement of electrolytes is the most commonly used method of electrolyte analysis, and hyperlipidemia and/or hyperproteinemia will produce artificially low sodium concentrations, owing to the electrolyte exclusion effect (1).
