Notes for AIPGMEE preparation

In hypocalcemia, ECG shows prolongation of QT interval (as a result of lengthened ST segment).

Lab findings in hypocalcemia:

  • Serum calcium concentration is low (< 8.5 mg/dL or < 2.21 mmol/L)
  • In true hypocalcemia, the ionized serum calcium concentration is low (< 4.6 mg/dL or < 1.15 mmol/L)
  • Serum phosphate is usually elevated in hypoparathyroidism or advanced stages of CKD, whereas it is suppressed in early-stages of CKD or vitamin D deficiency
  • Serum Mg2+ is commonly low
