A pt who was admitted due to ascites and diarrhea.

You can see ST depression and prolonged QT. "I would like to call it the invasion of the  ST on P's personal space". The K during this time is 2.2

What was done?

Institutions often trigger K protocol. So, K here was replaced.

Image #2 (after something was done - K replacement). The strip looked normal and no more invasion of P-ersonal space. K came back to 4.

#130
