Abstract
Because of the kidney’s central role in potassium homeostasis, potassium disorders are common in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) and acute kidney injury (AKI), particularly in those with severe kidney function impairment and those with concomitant comorbidities, such as diabetes, hypertension and heart failure. Other disorders of the kidney not associated with CKD, including tubular, endocrine and nutritional disorders, may also lead to alterations in serum potassium. The consequences of serum potassium disorders can be severe and may include arrhythmias and death.

Learning Objectives
Outpatient management of hyperkalemia
Emergency/inpatient management of hyperkalemia
A novel diagnostic approach to hypokalemia
