Clinical investigations in the past few years have enhanced the understanding of the mechanisms of hyperkalemia in patients with ESRD. The results of these studies have led to modifications in the acute treatment and prevention of hyperkalemia in this patient population. They have confirmed the efficacy of intravenous insulin, while raising doubts about the utility of intravenous bicarbonate, for the acute treatment of hyperkalemia. Moreover, the beta-adrenergic agonist albuterol has been shown… CONTINUE READING
