Calcium/Ventolin without patching (Feb 1st, 2022)

Question#: 572

Question:

Hello

Just for clarification, if I’m running an arrest for a pt at risk of Hyper K(on dialysis, CRF) I can administer Calcium/Ventolin without patching if I suspect that may be the cause of the arrest starting Feb 1st/22?



Thank you

Answer:

Yes, it will no longer be a patch point but a standing order to administer Calcium Gluconate/ Ventolin as of Feb 01, 2022. The reason for the change is to reduce the delay to treatment for patients presenting with hyperkalemia.
