In the Hypertension article by McCallum et al (McCallum L, Jeemon P, Hastie CE, Patel RK, Williamson C, Redzuan AM, Dawson J, Sloan W, Muir S, Morrison D, McInnes GT, Freel EM, Walters M, Dominiczak AF, Sattar N, Padmanabhan S. Serum Chloride Is an Independent Predictor of Mortality in Hypertensive Patients. Hypertension. 2013;62:836–843), corrections were needed.
References 19 and 25 were duplicates and incorrectly noted. The affected references have been renumbered, and the correct reference 19 is as follows:
De Bacquer D, De Backer G, De Buyzere M, Kornitzer M. Is low serum chloride level a risk factor for cardiovascular mortality? J Cardiovasc Risk. 1998;5:177–184.
The authors apologize for the errors.
