Potassium is a mineral that is found in numerous food sources and is required for a few elements of your body, particularly the pulsating of your heart.
magnesium sulfate is utilized to forestall or to treat low blood levels of potassium (hypokalemia).
Potassium levels can be low because of an infection or from taking certain medications, or after a drawn out ailment with loose bowels or regurgitating.
You ought not utilize magnesium sulfate in the event that you have significant degrees of potassium in your blood (hyperkalemia), or in the event that you likewise take a “potassium-saving” diuretic.
To be certain potassium chloride is helping your condition, your blood may should be tried frequently. Your pulse may likewise be checked utilizing an electrocardiograph or ECG (here and there called an EKG) to quantify electrical movement of the heart. This test will assist your primary care physician with deciding how long to treat you with potassium. Try not to miss any booked arrangements.
Genuine symptoms of potassium incorporate lopsided heartbeat, muscle shortcoming or limp inclination, serious stomach agony, and deadness or shivering in your grasp, feet, or mouth.
Try not to quit taking this medication without first conversing with your primary care physician. On the off chance that you quit taking this medication out of nowhere, your condition may turn out to be more terrible.
Try not to pound, bite, break, or suck on an all-encompassing delivery tablet or container. Gulp down the pill. Breaking or pulverizing the pill may cause a lot of the medication to be delivered at one time. Sucking on a tablet can disturb your mouth or throat. Take potassium chloride with food or soon after a supper.
Prior to taking this medication
You ought not utilize potassium chloride in the event that you are adversely affected by it, or if:
you have significant degrees of potassium in your blood (hyperkalemia); or
you take a “potassium-saving” diuretic (water pill, for example, amiloride, spironolactone, or triamterene.
To ensure this medication is ok for you, tell your PCP in the event that you have at any point had:
cirrhosis or other liver infection;
an adrenal organ problem;
an enormous tissue injury like an extreme consume;
serious lack of hydration;
coronary illness or hypertension;
stomach or intestinal dying;
a blockage in your stomach or digestive organs; or
persistent the runs (like ulcerative colitis, Crohn’s sickness).
The majority of the potassium chloride produced is used for making fertilizer, called potash, since the growth of many plants is limited by potassium availability. The two main types of potash are muriate of potash (MOP, potassium chloride) and sulphate of potash (SOP, potassium sulphate). While SOP typically sells at a premium to MOP, the vast majority of potash fertilizer worldwide is sold as MOP.
Potassium chloride, compacted, fertilizer grade.
Main article: Potassium chloride (medical use)
Potassium is vital in the human body, and potassium chloride by mouth is the common means to treat low blood potassium, although it can also be given intravenously. It is on the World Health Organization’s List of Essential Medicines. Overdose causes hyperkalemia which can disrupt cell signaling to the extent that the heart will stop, reversibly in the case of some open heart surgeries.
It can be used as a salt substitute for food, but due to its weak, bitter, unsalty flavor, it is often mixed with ordinary table salt (sodium chloride) to improve the taste to form low sodium salt. The addition of 1 ppm of thaumatin considerably reduces this bitterness. Complaints of bitterness or a chemical or metallic taste are also reported with potassium chloride used in food.
As a chemical feedstock, it is used for the manufacture of potassium hydroxide and potassium metal. It is also used in medicine, lethal injections, scientific applications, food processing, soaps, and as a sodium-free substitute for table salt for people concerned about the health effects of sodium.
It is used as a supplement in animal feed to boost the number of nutrients in the feed, which in turn promotes healthy growth in animals. As an added benefit, it is known to increase milk production.
It is sometimes used in water as a completion fluid in petroleum and natural gas operations, as well as being an alternative to sodium chloride in household water softener units.
Glass manufacturers use granular potash as a flux, lowering the temperature at which a mixture melts. Because potash confers excellent clarity to glass, it is commonly used in eyeglasses, glassware, televisions, and computer monitors.
KCl is useful as a beta radiation source for calibration of radiation monitoring equipment, because natural potassium contains 0.0118% of the isotope 40K. One kilogram of KCl yields 16350 becquerels of radiation consisting of 89.28% beta and 10.72% gamma with 1.46083 MeV. In order to use off the shelf materials it needs to be crystallized sequentially using controlled temperature in order to extract KCl, which is the subject of ongoing research. There are also a small number of 511 keV gamma rays from positron annihilation which can be used to calibrate medical scanners.
Potassium chloride is used in some de-icing products that are designed to be safer for pets and plants, though these are inferior in melting quality to calcium chloride [lowest usable temperature 12 °F (−11 °C) v. −25 °F (−32 °C)]. It is also used in various brands of bottled water, as well as in bulk quantities for fossil fuel drilling purposes.
Potassium chloride was once used as a fire extinguishing agent, used in portable and wheeled fire extinguishers. Known as Super-K dry chemical, it was more effective than sodium bicarbonate-based dry chemicals and was compatible with protein foam. This agent fell out of favor with the introduction of potassium bicarbonate (Purple-K) dry chemical in the late 1960s, which was much less corrosive and more effective. It is rated for B and C fires.
Along with sodium chloride and lithium chloride, potassium chloride is used as a flux for the gas welding of aluminium.
Potassium chloride is also an optical crystal with a wide transmission range from 210 nm to 20 µm. While cheap, KCl crystals are hygroscopic. This limits its application to protected environments or short-term uses such as prototyping. Exposed to free air, KCl optics will “rot”. Whereas KCl components were formerly used for infrared optics, it has been entirely replaced by much tougher crystals such as zinc selenide.
Potassium chloride is used as a scotophor with designation P10 in dark-trace CRTs, e.g. in the Skiatron.
Execution by lethal injection
In a few states of the United States, it is used to cause cardiac arrest, as the third drug in the “three drug cocktail” for executions by lethal injection.
