[Electrolyte content of antibiotics].

[Article in German]


The sodium and potassium content of frequently used antibiotics was calculated. Whenever high dose intravenous chemotherapy is used the amounts of sodium or potassium must be taken in consideration in the electrolyte balance. Special attention must be given to patients on restricted sodium diet. In these cases, the additional sodium resulting from intravenous chemotherapy may exceed the daily administered amount of sodium. The summary of electrolyte content of antibiotics may be useful in balancing electrolytes during infusion therapy.
