Hyperkalemia myths from EMLyceum

Hi all,

Short post today, as I just want to acknowledge the great work of another blog over at EMLyceum.

The myths of hyperkalemia management are many.  While I have discussed the uselessness of kayexalate in my introductory post, I was thinking about discussing ECG changes and the “textbook progression” so often cited with peaked T-waves, loss of PR, widening of QRS and so on.

However, I don’t think I could do a better job than EMLyceum has already done, so head over there and check it out.  Their website also has many other great posts, set in a question and answer style for teaching.

Kudos to them!
