An oral board case of abdominal pain in a pediatric patient, presented by Drs. Mel Herbert and Jess Mason, with commentary by Dr. Ilene Claudius.
Amazing.Thank you so much for such a nice discussion.
at about 19:50 in episode 1 with the pediatric oral boards example...Why do I have to wait for the child with high potassium to urinate before starting K?
james c.I think the reason for holding off on the K until urination is because the kid is dehydrated intracellularly; get the fluids going, reperfuse the kidneys to get a urine output and then we can count on the kidneys to lose the K flying around extracellularly... if we don't wait and we provide the K right away, then for sure a high K is going to get higher before it dropsI hope someone can correct me if I'm missing something
What you do matters.
