Potassium and phophate ratio in combo infusion
It is handy to remember that 1 mmol of intravenous phophate delivers 1.46 meq of potassium in "K-phos rider". To make it in round figure 7.5 mmol of phosphate is equal to about 10 meq of potassium and should be infuse over atleast one hour.
See nice read and guideline on "K-phos" rider at ismp.org
