1,732 Possible Causes for Potassium Increased

  • Hyperkalemia

    OBJECTIVE: To compare different strategies predicting hyperkalemia (serum potassium level 5.5 mEq/l) in hospitalized patients for whom medications triggering potassium-increasing[] RESULTS: Serum potassium level increased in 108 patients after surgery (P CONCLUSIONS: Preoperative serum potassium increased after parathyroidectomy with autotransplantation[] (serum potassium concentration 5 mmol/L) in the setting of increased potassium intake.[]

  • Diabetes Mellitus

    In this case, the evening insulin dose should be increased, changed to a longer-acting preparation, or injected later.[] […] avoids potassium outflow from the cell, thus triggering cell membrane depolarization.[] Hypokalemia may be caused by intracellular shifts of potassium due to insulin -induced stimulation of the sodium-potassium pump, but it is uncommon.[]

  • Acidosis

    Some small effects occur on calcium and potassium levels. Acidosis decreases binding of calcium to albumin and tends to increase serum ionized calcium levels.[] […] in high Anion Gap Metabolic Acidosis Excess Anion Gap Suggests Non-Anion Gap Metabolic Acidosis Serum Potassium Investigate normal Anion Gap Metabolic Acidosis See above[] In addition, acidemia causes an extracellular shift of potassium, but respiratory acidosis rarely causes clinically significant hyperkalemia.[]

  • Chronic Kidney Insufficiency

    […] levels Hyperparathyroidism Increased risk of infections Liver damage or failure Malnutrition Miscarriages and infertility Seizures Swelling ( edema ) Weakening of the bones[] potassium secretion.[] […] the legs and arms ( peripheral neuropathy ) Dementia Fluid buildup around the lungs ( pleural effusion ) Heart and blood vessel complications High phosphorous levels High potassium[]

  • Acute Kidney Failure

    Because of increasing potassium levels acute hemodialysis was started within 24 h after admission.[] […] excretion Increased renal potassium excretion -intravenous loop diuretics only effective in non-oliguric patients Increased gastrointestinal potassium excretion -Sodium polystyrene[] Calcium, glucose/insulin, or potassium will be given through a vein to help avoid dangerous increases in blood potassium levels.[]

  • Dehydration

    Plus, a lack of electrolytes, potassium and sodium – all of which hydration helps increase – is linked to cramps.[] During diarrhoea there is an increased loss of water and electrolytes (sodium, chloride, potassium, and bicarbonate) in the liquid stool.[] This general principle is true for sodium and chloride, but potassium and calcium concentrations increase at lower sweat flows[ 7 ].[]

  • Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome

    The patient’s weight increases in the first 1-3 days on ECMO because of the need of fluid resuscitation, fluid retention, and oliguric phase.[] Fluids, Electrolytes and Nutrition: patients on ECMO require close monitoring of fluids and electrolytes (potassium, magnesium, phosphorus and ionized calcium).[]

  • Tumor Lysis Syndrome

    potassium 6 meq/L or 25% increase phosphate 4.5 mg/dL or 25% increase calcium 7 mg/dL or 25% decrease -Clinical Tumor Lysis: Laboratory tumor lysis one of the below Renal[] […] from baseline *potassium 6 or 25% increase from baseline *phos 4.5 or 25% increase from baseline *Ca --clinical TLS is defined laboratory criteria a creat 1.5x baseline,[] Causes of electrolyte imbalance and the resulting symptoms Hyperkalemia Causes: Cell lysis results in increased potassium levels in the extracellular space, which destabilizes[]

  • Acute Renal Failure with Oliguria

    Hyperkalemia Potassium increases 0.5 mmol/l/day during anuria.[] […] the patient experiences increasing muscle weakness and abdominal cramping The most common cause of death in acute renal failure is Serum potassium and urea _____?[] Dialysis will be required if serum potassium is raised or symptomatic fluid overload is present and urine output is not IMMEDIATELY increased by frusemide.[]

  • Non-Oliguric Renal Failure

    […] excretion through the competitive inhibition of epithelial sodium channels in the distal nephron, in a manner identical to the potassium-sparing diuretic amiloride increased[] […] episodes treated with trimethoprim rather than amoxicillin, there would be one additional case of hyperkalaemia and two of AKI the authors state that "the relative risk increase[] […] have 2 open access pages. hyperkalaemia has been demonstrated to occur with the administration of both high and standard dosages of trimethoprim trimethoprim reduces renal potassium[]
