Paucis Verbis card: Hyperkalemia management

Hyperkalemia is a common presentation in the Emergency Department, especially in the setting of acute renal failure. In one shift, I had 4 patients with hyperkalemia! All had from some form of renal failure.

This installment of the Paucis Verbis (In a Few Words) e-card series reviews the treatment options for hyperkalemia.
