Hi. I had a patient with a potassium of 6.4, was given oral Kayexalate, then three days later had a potassium of 2.0. I was just wondering if anyone knows how long Kayexalate continues to work in the body, as I have had trouble...
This can't be right. K of 6.4, bicarb gtt, and no labs for >48h?
Or maybe it is... jeez I don't know anymore. My head spins when I hear some of this stuff.
