Cloruro de Potasio Microsules

Oral solution

 

Formula:

Each 100 mL contains:

Potassium chloride                          4.0 g

Excipients q.s.ad.                             100 mL

 

Indications:

Restorer of potassium in the body. Prevention and correction of hypokalemia.

It is an oral electrolyte which acts to balance and / or restore the potassium ion in the animal body. The Hypokalemia is a caramelized body electrolyte imbalance because the decrease of potassium ion of blood. This decline may be due to sweating, vomiting, diarrhea, low potassium intake, kidney disease, prolonged use of diuretics such as furosemide or other dewatering processes.

For each particular situation it should be taken into account that each ml contains 0.54 mEq. of potassium.

Guidance dose:

Equine: 25 mL (1 g) every 100 kg. Canine and feline: from 12.5 ml to 55 mL/10 kg daily divided into 3 doses (every 8 hours).

The parameters and the frequency of the monitoring associated with the therapy with potassium depend on the cause and/or severity of the hypokalemia, abnormalities of acid/base status, renal function, other administered drugs or diuretics used, and they may include: a) serum potassium, b) other electrolytes, c) acid/base status, d) glucose, e) ECG, f) hemogram and g) urine tests.
