Electrolyte Repletion

Potassium (always check Mg and replete PRIOR to repleting K. Low Mg can worsen K losses) Goal serum potassium level: ∼ 4.0 mEq/L Expected increase in serum potassium levels: ∼ 0.1 mEq/L after an IV dose of 10 mEq Use caution with repletion in patients with impaired renal function. Oral uptake can be improved by…Read more
