Potassium Rising – Addressing a Recurring Threat in Patients
Recorded on August 27, 2019
Sponsored by Relypsa
Dr. Matthew Weir will discuss the contemporary strategies to manage hyperkalemia, a condition that is often present in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD). Hyperkalemia is a serious, recurrent condition that can occur quickly and unexpectedly in high-risk populations, such as patients with chronic kidney disease, heart failure and diabetes. Hyperkalemia can have serious clinical consequences such as arrythmias, sudden death and represents a significant burden to our healthcare system due to increased emergency department visits and hospitalizations.
