faqFrequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

To take the blood sample, a tourniquet (elastic) band is placed tightly on the upper arm. The patient is asked to make a fist. This helps in the buildup 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. The needle is then inserted into the vein in the arm and the blood sample is collected in the vacutainer.
Potassium is an electrolyte that helps to transport nutrients to cells and takes out waste products from cells. Along with other electrolytes such as sodium and chloride, potassium regulates the amount of fluid in the body. It helps to maintain acid-base balance.
The examples of food containing potassium include spinach, beef, bananas, grapefruit, oranges, cantaloupe, tomatoes, squash, potatoes, legumes, seeds, and nuts.
The symptoms of low levels of potassium in the blood include fatigue, constipation, palpitations, muscle damage, tingling or numbness, muscle weakness, or spasms.
