Has Kayexlate Finally Pooped Out??


So I’ve talk to multiple students and residents and tried to convey the idea that we shouldn’t be so gungho to use kayexlate acutely for hyperkalemia in the hospital (same with the outpatient setting). There is a plaucity of evidence that this resin does very much outside of . Of course it is easier to show them than tell them, so here is the Storify for the #NephJC on hyperkalemia and it’s treatments (including ZS-9). This is a great one by the way. It points out the risk of sodium polysterone sulfonate and how there is little (NO) benefit as compared to other cathartics. Also check out NephJC.com or follow them on twitter at @NephJC and joint in on the twitter journal clubs by following the #nephjc.


Nice job!
You now have 30 beans.
Use them wisely, my friend.
