correct dosages for calcium chloride

Recommended Posts

What are the correct dosages for calcium given to 1) hyperkalemia 2) calcium-channel blocker OD's.

I've looked at several sources, some saying 1 to 4 grams, another saying 500 mg, another 1 - 4 mg/kg....

Also, why are the pediatric dosages so high?

Calcium Chloride is usually administered as follows: Adults 2-4 MG/KG of 10% solution IV repeated every 10 minutes as needed. Pediatrics 5-7 MG/KG of 10% solution IV.
