HIRATA, Eunice Sizue; PEREIRA, Rosa Inês Costa; ALVES FILHO, Gentil  and  BRAGA, Angélica de Fátima Assunção. Hyperkalemia by Euro-Collins solution in anesthesia for renal transplantation: a case report. Rev. Bras. Anestesiol. [online]. 2013, vol.63, n.5, pp.429-432. ISSN 0034-7094.

OBJECTIVE: To describe anesthesia for renal transplantation that progressed to a sharp potassium increase after kidney reperfusion with Euro-Collins' solution in the operative field. We will also report on diagnosis and treatment used. CONCLUSION: The use of infusion solutions in the surgical field requires careful monitoring, such as electrocardiography, measurement of serum potassium, and availability of calcium gluconate, insulin, and albuterol for immediate use. The replacement of Euro-Collins' solution for saline solution immediately before the implant may be a useful option in patients with high levels of potassium.
