This guidance is for the management of hyperkalaemia in adults in hospital. We have a separate page on management of hyperkalaemia in the community.
Please find guidance as .pdf from this link: NHS Lothian Management of Hyperkalaemia in Adult Inpatients (2023).
The protocols for individual drugs used in the management of hyperkalaemia are found in our prescribing handbook.
