It has been generally accepted that acidosis results in hyperkalemia because of shifts of potassium from the intracellular to the extracellular compartment. There is ample clinical and experimental evidence, however, to support the conclusion that uncomplicated organic acidemias do not produce hyperkalemia. In acidosis associated with mineral acids (respiratory acidosis, end-stage uremic acidosis, NH4Cl-or CaCl2-induced acidosis), acidemia per se, results in predictable increases in serum… CONTINUE READING
