Clinical Practice Guidelines Treatment of Acute Hyperkalaemia in Adults - The Renal Association, now the UK Kidney Association


Purpose :
This guideline provides an updated version of the original Hyperkalaemia guideline (2014). The main aims are to provide evidence-based recommendations for the treatment of chronic hyperkalaemia in the community, acute hyperkalaemia in the hospital setting and to reduce the risk of complications associated with hyperkalaemia itself and its treatment.

Scope : The original RA Hyperkalaemia Guideline (2014) focussed predominantly the management of hyperkalaemia in secondary care. The current RA Hyperkalaemia Guideline (2020) provides a comprehensive overview of the detection and treatment of hyperkalaemia in the community and hospital settings.
