Easy Framework for Hyperkalemia Workup

High potassium isn’t just terrifying, it’s SO. COMMON.

You probably had the fear-of-potassium instilled in you as a tender nursing student like I did.

Today’s video continues the Lab Interpretation Series— concise, practical videos to help manage your overflowing lab results pile.

Potassium isn’t as easy as high calcium, but in this video I’ve broken it down so you can feel confident knowing:

  • When to send someone to the ER, and when to work up outpatient
  • What other tests you need to look at and order
  • The #1 lab test that will tell you most of what you need to know

Once you’ve watched, I’d love to hear from you.

What one thing will change your practice from watching this video?

Here’s the link to the high calcium video if you haven’t seen it yet.

Leave me a comment below. Be sure to share your thought directly in the comments, no links or videos as they may be removed.

Thanks so much for watching. Hang in there, and I’ll see you soon.
