Serum potassium, hydrogen ion and magnesium: neuromuscular regulation by variation of cation concentration in the extracellular fluid?


It is a common clinical observation that changes in serum [K] are frequently associated with changes in serum [H] and/or [Mg]. Thus, hypokalaemia and alkalosis are associated, as are hyperkalaemia and acidosis, and hypokalaemia and hypomagnesaemia. Most investigators would accept that these ions have important roles in the maintenance of neuromuscular… (More)
