Hi Kaizsal,

I am not usually on the heart forum, but I am helping out. I just wanted to welcome you to HealingWell. It may be slow as it is the weekend. But it will perk up during the week.

Hugs, Karen...

Welcome aboard.  I am not sure you gave us enough info re your concern.  "Fast correction was done the urine output only about 300ml for 3 days can this created cardiac infarct."  I am not sure what your dx was and what the correction was that you refer to.
 
2 GM = 2000mg.  Potassium prescribed by physicians is in mEq. 
So 39.10 mg = 1 mmol = 1 mEq. The relationship is generally unique for each substance and has to be computed from atomic weights, and valence observed in chemical reactions.
 
In my calculation you may have received approximate 50 mEq of Potassium.  This is truly a question of your physician that prescribed the medication and he should also be able to advice you re your cardiac question.
 
I wish you the best of luck and please remember I am not a physician.
 
Kindly,
Kitt

Dear Kitt

Thanks i appreciates your input.yup i did not elaborate correctly.thing it it happened as below

Day 1 2gm FPC was done concentrated using drip(intravenous) due to swollen vein after 36 hours only saline drip to flush excessive potassium in the body..dehydrated, urine red and low 300m(36 hours duration)l..this can be fatal or improper FPC was done and lack of monitoring imagine concentrated potassium,can do to our heart like fast heartbeat and cardiac infarct.

Gracious
