Calcium is an important mineral that is used in many ways by the body. It strengthens your bones & teeth and also helps in muscle and nerve functions. Ionized calcium is an unbound calcium, not bound to any anions or proteins and circulates freely in the blood. Ionized calcium is vital in blood coagulation, nerve conduction, neuromuscular transmission and in muscle contraction. The ionized calcium levels are usually checked if the person is receiving blood transfusions, critically ill and on intravenous (IV) fluids, having had a major surgery, with abnormal levels of blood proteins such as albumin or immunoglobins in the blood.

faqFrequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

How is the blood sample taken?

To take the blood sample, a tourniquet (elastic) band is placed tightly on the upper arm. The patient is then asked to make a fist. This helps in the build-up of blood filling the veins and it becomes easy to collect the blood. The skin is cleaned before inserting the needle in the vein in order to prevent bacteria from entering. Needle is inserted into the vein of the arm and the blood sample is collected in the vacutainer.

What are the symptoms on high level of ionised calcium?

Ionised calcium may cause neuromuscular disturbances, like hyperreflexia and/or neurologic abnormalities like mental and/or physical fatigue, depression or psychosis.

What are the symptoms of low ionised calcium levels?

Low levels of ionised calcium may cause cramps, reduced cardiac output and decreased left ventricular function.
