and acid-base imbalances following hypertonic saline infusion have been widely described. Specifically, a decrease from baseline plasma potassium levels soon after administration of a bolus ( 4 , 5 , 6 ) and an increase in plasma potassium levels up

Introduction Hypokalemia is present when serum levels of potassium are lower than normal. It is a rather common electrolyte disturbance, especially in hospitalized patients, with various causes and sometimes requires urgent medical attention

. Regarding other electrolytes and acid-base biomarkers, there are only a few studies published. Low levels of potassium during admission have been associated with poor prognosis and severe disease, but little is known of the dynamics over time in COVID-19

complications are more frequent in untreated thyrotoxicosis ( 2 ). Lugol’s solution (LS) was invented in 1829 by the French physician Jean Guillaume August Lugol as a cure for tuberculosis. It is a solution of elemental iodine (5%), potassium iodide (10%) and
