Terms & Properties

Concept Unique Identifier (CUI): C0020461

NCI Thesaurus Code: C37968  (see NCI Thesaurus info)

Semantic Type: Finding

NCIt Definition: Higher than normal levels of potassium in the circulating blood; associated with kidney failure or sometimes with the use of diuretic drugs.

HPO Definition: An abnormally increased potassium concentration in the blood. [HPO:probinson]

CTCAE Definition: A disorder characterized by laboratory test results that indicate an elevation in the concentration of potassium in the blood; associated with kidney failure or sometimes with the use of diuretic drugs.

NICHD Definition: Abnormally high level of potassium in the blood.

CSP Definition: abnormally high potassium concentration in the blood, most often due to defective renal excretion; characterized clinically by electrocardiographic abnormalities; in severe cases, weakness and flaccid paralysis may occur.

MSH Definition: Abnormally high potassium concentration in the blood, most often due to defective renal excretion. It is characterized clinically by electrocardiographic abnormalities (elevated T waves and depressed P waves, and eventually by atrial asystole). In severe cases, weakness and flaccid paralysis may occur. (Dorland, 27th ed)
