A Comparative Analysis of Molar Sodium Lactate and Other Agents in the Treatment of Induced Hyperkalemia in Nephrectomized Dogs
Molar sodium lactate, sodium bicarbonate, sodium chloride, glucose insulin, and calcium chloride were used in the treatment of induced hyperkalemia in nephrectomized dogs. The effect of these agents on the electrocardiogram and on potassium partition was studied. Molar sodium lactate appeared to be the agent of choice in the treatment of the hyperkalemic state under these experimental conditions.
