Causes of hyperkalemia

Severe Muscle Weakness due to Hyperkalemia - japi.org

Hyperkalemia is a common electrolyte disorder in patients with renal insufficiency. The occurrence of symptoms and signs of hyperkalemia depends on the chronicity of the disorder. The changes induced by hyperkalemia are essentially limited to abnormal cardiac conduction and muscle weakness, which can lead to potentially fatal arrhythmias

Drug-induced Hyperkalemia: Old Culprits and New Offenders

and contribute to the development of hyperkalemia. In general, hyperkalemia results from three major causes: excessive potassium intake, disturbed cellular uptake of potassium, or impaired renal excretion of potassium. POTASSIUM INPUT A common cause of hyperkalemia in hospitalized pa-tients is enteral or parenteral intake of potassium (12,13,15).

Management of Hyperkalemia: An Update for the Internist

For chronic management of hyperkalemia, the goal is to prevent the development of hyperkalemia by identifying and correcting the proximal defect(s) in potassium homeostasis. This typically starts by eliminating correctable causes, such as high potassium intake in diet or in supplements, hyperkalemia-inducing medications, or metabolic acidosis

Treatment of hyperkalemia: something old, something new

The electrocardiogram in hyperkalemia Hyperkalemia decreases the transmembrane potassium gradient leading to increased potassium conductance, and this shortens the duration of the action potential.25 As potassium rises to 5.5 to 6.5 mmol/l, peaked T-waves and a prolonged PR segment may be seen, advancing with higher levels of

HYPERKALEMIA - EM Clerkship

Causes of Hyperkalemia • Drawing blood too forcefully, causes cells to break open and potassium level rises artificially= pseudo-hyperkalemia • Damaged cells in the body, Ex: muscle breakdown during marathon or crush injuries • Kidney disease: Missed dialysis, acute urinary obstruction, organ failure !Shock. HYPERKALEMIA Hyperkalemia = EKG.
