12: Episode 12 – The Dark Side of Electrolytes (Part 4: Calcium)

In this episode, we continue our electrolyte series by focusing on one of the most abundant minerals in our body: calcium.  Calcium is an ion that plays a number of roles in maintaining homeostasis, and it is readily available for administration for most of us in both the pre-hospital and hospital setting.  Tune in as we discuss total calcium and its affects on our critically ill patients; primarily focusing on the measurement of ionized calcium (iCa) levels, and the appropriate treatments of both hypo and hyper states.
