Patients are moderately obtunded, confused, and disoriented.[enotes.tripod.com] […] in potassium after vomiting or taking diuretics Several tests are used to diagnose hepatic encephalopathy.[healthline.com]

  • Diabetic Ketoacidosis

    Potassium levels can fluctuate severely during the treatment of DKA, because insulin decreases potassium levels in the blood by redistributing it into cells via increased[en.wikipedia.org] Both insulin therapy and correction of acidosis decrease serum potassium levels by stimulating cellular potassium uptake in peripheral tissues.[spectrum.diabetesjournals.org] , which is essential to good health - vomiting and treatment for diabetic ketoacidosis can cause a decrease in potassium levels (hypokalemia) Common triggers The three most[your.md]

  • Urinary Tract Infection

    Indicators of infection in seniors include the following: Confusion or delirium Agitation Hallucinations Other unusual behavioral changes Poor motor skills or loss of coordination[agingcare.com]

  • Uremia

    In addition, other metabolic abnormalities, such as acidemia or type IV renal tubular acidosis, may contribute to decreased potassium excretion and lead to hyperkalemia.[emedicine.com] As renal function declines, the nephron is unable to excrete a normal potassium load, which can lead to hyperkalemia if dietary intake remains constant.[emedicine.com]

  • Acute Alcohol Intoxication

    The loss of electrolytes such as phosphate, potassium and magnesium can result in cardiac dysrhythmia.[emsworld.com] Acute alcohol ingestion can result in a decreased cardiac output in nonalcoholic patients with preexisting cardiac disease. This may be clinically significant.[emsworld.com]

  • Hyponatremia

    Swollen brain cells react to hyponatremic conditions by decreasing their volume over approximately 48 h by the extrusion of potassium, sodium, chloride, and organic osmolytes[doi.org] As ordered, Megan starts an I.V. infusion of 0.9% normal saline with potassium 20 mEq at a rate of 200 mL/hour for 1 liter, and then decreases the rate to 125 mL/hour.[americannursetoday.com]
