is a condition in which the potassium level in the blood is abnormally high, and it is found to occur in patients with heart and kidney diseases, particularly those taking blood pressure medications belonging to the RAAS inhibitor class.
may also be aggravated by crystal nephropathy induced AKI and may cause serious dysrhythmias and death.
Previously, SPS was used with cathartic agent for treating acute hyperkalemia
especially in patients with end stage renal disease.
Association between hyperkalemia
at critical care initiation and mortality.
In the United States, there are more than three million patients who are living with hyperkalemia
-- a condition that refers to having abnormally high blood potassium levels.
The company added that the KardiaK technology employs a proprietary deep neural network trained to detect hyperkalemia
using data from electrocardiograms (ECG) similar to those captured by its KardiaMobile and KardiaBand devices.
During the hospital stay, blood biochemical examination showed normal liver and renal functions but significant hyperkalemia
, hyperchloremia, and metabolic acidosis [Table 1].
was managed with calcium chloride for cardiac membrane stabilization along with insulin infusion and a total of 50 mEq of sodium bicarbonate boluses initially.
is a commonly encountered clinical problem.
Clinically, a high level of serum potassium (hyperkalemia
) might potentially result in life-threatening complications by changing the action potential of heart rhythm cells and further inducing critical cardiac arrhythmia.
is a rare side effect of [beta]-blocker drugs [1-3].
Another risk factor present in our patient was hyperkalemia
. She was hyperkalemic (5.5) at presentation.
is an uncommon cause of reversible flaccid paralysis.
The present study has been designed to evaluate proportional morbidity rate(PMR) along with comparative evaluation study between different diagnostic tools (viz., urinalysis, radiography, hyperkalemia
, clinical signs and ultrasonography for Pandora Box Syndrome (PBS).A total of PMR among PBS cases was estimated to be 8.7%.
A diagnosis of diabetic ketoacidosis with severe hyperkalemia
was made (1, 2).
