Question, over what period of time do you give an amp of calcium gluconate to someone who is not coding? Had to give this to a pt with hyperkalemia last night and all the resources I read just said to push slowly, but didn't give me any period of time... I gave it over 4-5 minutes, but my pt still had a drop in hr, bp, became flushed, and said her heart felt like it was going to jump out of her chest, which makes me think I should have given it slower?
Just want to get some other insight! Thanks
