• Insulin
  • Why Give Glucose and Insulin for Hyperkalemia? (livestrong.com)
  • most of the human errors were associated with knowledge deficits regarding insulin concentration (specifically that "U-100" means the concentration is 100 units per mL), the differences between insulin syringes and other parenteral syringes, and a perceived urgency with treating hyperkalemia. (ismp.org)
  • We also recently became aware of a case in which a patient with hyperkalemia had orders to receive insulin and a 50% dextrose injection, but the patient received only the insulin portion of the treatment and experienced significant hypoglycemia. (ismp.org)
  • High Blood Potassium
  • Tumor lysis syndrome is characterized by high blood potassium (hyperkalemia), high blood phosphorus (hyperphosphatemia), low blood calcium (hypocalcemia), high blood uric acid (hyperuricemia), and higher than normal levels of blood urea nitrogen (BUN) and other nitrogen-containing compounds (azotemia).

  • Mild
  • One viewpoint is that mild to moderate hyperkalemia is a secondary effect that denotes significant underlying medical problems. (wikipedia.org)
  • Clinical
  • Hyperkalemia and loss of consciousness after the consumption of several liters of coconut water were reported only as a clinical case study in association with one individual's use of a commercial product following physical exertion. (wikipedia.org)
