The use of IV calcium gluconate in patients who are asymptomatic might result in unnecessary risk, with potential side effects including hypotension and arrhythmias.
Iatrogenic calcification typically occurs in patients who have received IV calcium chloride or calcium gluconate therapy.
As theoretical yield of calcium gluconate is more than 100% so the development of this technology would be highly feasible.
Ten ml of 10% calcium chloride or 10% calcium gluconate three times the dose of calcium chloride can be used.
6) Calcium glubionate administration was discontinued, and treatment with calcium gluconate (50 mg/kg IM once, then 10 mg/kg IM q12h) was initiated.
The acute phase included emergency department evaluation, serum calcium measurement, acute treatment with calcium gluconate and length of stay which extended until symptoms were controlled.
Intravenous calcium gluconate (10 ml of 10% solution thrice a day) was also started in the patient.
