Of the CKD and/or heart failure patients in the U.S., about 2.1 million are estimated to have occurrences of hyperkalemia.
Operational Definitions: Laboratory TLS was defined when two or more of the following biochemical abnormalities were present (i) hyperuricemia (ii) hyperkalemia (iii) hyperphosphatemia (iv) hypocalcemia, Clinical TLS was diagnosed if child had abnormality in any one end organ (eg AKI, seizure and cardiac arrhythmias) along with lab TLS.
This prospective quasi-experimental study includes those admitted patients in medical ward of hospital who were secondarily diagnosed with symptomatic or asymptomatic acute hyperkalemia through serum electrolyte level test which was done on daily basis in the morning for all the patients who require monitoring of serum electrolytes.
At the American College of Cardiology Scientific Sessions, the company updated the findings from the development of an AI algorithm to detect hyperkalemia, using over 2m ECGs linked with 4m serum potassium values.
Mostly, serendipitous hyperkalemia and/or hypertension is the primary complaint in PHAII patients.[1],[2] While hypertension is usually presented in adulthood, pediatric patients usually show only hyperkalemia.
The fact that our patient's creatinine being persistently normal, the patient continued to make urine and no EKG changes despite high potassium level should have prompted to think outside of true hyperkalemia. As a clinician, we need to be very attentive and consider several physical and technical factors before interpreting any abnormal lab value.
Comparing to the patients with low or normal levels of potassium, the patients with high potassium levels (hyperkalemia) were significantly more likely to suffer bradycardia (41.1%, n = 118), nonsinus rhythm (46.0%, n = 132), urine output < 1 ml/kg/hr (69.3%, n = 199), and acidosis (87.8%, n = 252).
[beta]-Blocker-induced hyperkalemia is a rare nonspecific side effect of [beta]-blocker therapy as illustrated by the effect from two different [beta]-blockers in the same patient.

He had severe hyperkalemia (serum potassium: 7.02 mmol/l) with electrocardiogram showing tall, tented T waves and sine waves.
On comparing apparently healthy felines (n = 98) with diseased (n = 208;affected with PBS in the past or at present), highestagreement 0.812 (0.70-0.92%) was found between clinical signs and ultrasonography, while lowest agreement was seen between ultrasonography and hyperkalemia (0.449; 0.35 -0.54%).In conclusion,PMR values show more about specialty as well as interests of clinicians rather than the incidence of disease in that population.
