The Relationship of Total Calcium, Ionized Calcium and pH

The webinar is designed to convey an understanding of the clinical utility of ionized calcium measurements, the difference between total calcium and ionized calcium, and the effect of pH on ionized calcium. It will further explain why ionized calcium is a superior test when monitoring critical care and surgical patients. Finally, the webinar will discuss why corrected algorithms and total calcium should not be used in critical care patients.
