Hello! I work in a med/surg floor. They recently change our K protocol from 20meq po q4 into 20-40 meq po q2 depending on the k of course... My question is, is it safe to give 40 meq of kcl liquid q2 hours all at once? Or would it be better to give it 20 then wait 30 minutes to give the next 20? Some say that it can cause gastric irritation if you give the whole 40.... What do you guys think? Thanks!
