Potassium and Calcium: Episode 26

hypokalemia

Understanding the important role that electrolytes play will separate you from the ho-hum nurse and catapult you into Awesome Nurse Status. If you’re a student, you might think that it’s simply a matter of knowing what the normal and abnormal values are…but that’s just a teeny tiny part of it!

In this podcast, we talk about potassium and calcium:

  • important roles of potassium and calcium
  • potassium and calcium “fun facts” (and yes…they ARE fun!)
  • signs and symptoms of hypokalemia, hyperkalamia, hypocalcemia and hypercalcemia
  • common causes of potassium and calcium imbalances
  • assessment parameters, nursing interventions and how to treat
