Potassium Chloride Concentrate 15%

Potassium chloride is used as a source of the potassium cation for treatment or prevention of potassium depletion in patients in whom dietary measures are inadequate. Potassium chloride may also be used cautiously to abolish arrhythmias or cardiac glycoside toxicity precipitated by a loss of potassium.

Intravenous (IV) Sodium Chloride Solution Side Effects

Lithium concentrations and control of symptoms should be monitored frequently in patients receiving IV sodium chloride. Use of tolvaptan (Samsca) with hypertonic preparations of sodium chloride (3% or 5% solution for injection) is not recommended as rapid correction of hyponatremia (low levels of sodium in the blood) increases the risk of osmotic demyelination (nerve damage).

What is IV Potassium Therapy? (with pictures)

Jan 05, 2020The risk with IV potassium is that the body cannot process this mineral well in large amounts. If the blood is flooded with a bolus of potassium, there is a risk that it can stop the heart. In fact, potassium chloride is used in executions, illustrating how lethal it can be in larger doses.

Principles and protocols for intravenous fluid therapy

Sodium chloride 0.9% with or without additional potassium is one of the most commonly used IV fluids in UK practice. However, questions have been raised in relation to its appropriate use. As with all crystalloids, sodium chloride 0.9% is distributed throughout the ECF and infusion usually has a more transient effect on plasma volume than colloids.

Side Effects of IV Fluid Overinfusion

Dec 18, 2018When large amounts of IV fluids are given, they may alter the concentration of electrolytes in the blood. Fluids, such as normal saline or hypertonic saline, contain more sodium and chloride than blood, so overinfusion of these fluids can raise blood sodium and chloride levels.
