    Hypokalemia events were related to malnutrition (odds ratio, 2.79; 95% confidence interval, 1.09-7.14; P .045).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] to the development of digitalis toxicity.[annals.org] […] dL ( 1.4-2.0 mEq/L 0.70 -1.00 mmol/L); - to convert mg/dL to mmol/L (SI units): multiply by 0.4114 Assoc. lytes abnormality: hypocalcemia, hypokalemia, hypophosphatemia, hyponatremia[enotes.tripod.com]

  • Congestive Heart Failure

    In most cases, it is a result of diuretic therapy, which causes activation of the renin-angiotensin system, chloride depletion, increased distal sodium delivery, hypokalemia[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] toxicity, and hemodynamic abnormalities.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] We describe the use of conivaptan in a 4-month-old infant girl with severe hypervolemic hyponatremia and heart failure.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Bumetanide

    The most frequent adverse events were hypokalemia, increased urine elimination, loss of appetite, dehydration and asthenia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Interactions: May increase digitalis, lithium toxicity. Hypokalemia with digitalis, diuretics in CHF. Alcohol, CNS depressants may increase orthostatic hypotension.[empr.com] Vilazodone: (Moderate) Patients receiving vilazodone with medications known to cause hyponatremia, such as diuretics, may be at increased risk of developing hyponatremia.[pdr.net]
