    The relation between lithium and the members of the second group. O.I 0.3 0.5 TTL Z Concentration FIG. 6..[alamy.it] Hyperkalemia Pφ Severe hyperkalemia is a life-threatening emergency, requiring immediate treatment.[musculoskeletalkey.com] Diuretic drugs, cyclosporin, lithium, heparin, ACE inhibitors, beta blockers , and trimethoprim can increase serum potassium levels, as can heavy exercise .[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com]
