What are the indications for magnesium therapy?
Magnesium deficiency is associated with ventricular ectopy, sudden cardiac death, and CHF. It can also precipitate refractory VF and impede correction of hypokalemia. Hypomagnesemia should be corrected in cases of refractory VT or VF. Magnesium sulfate is the treatment of choice for torsades de pointes. Magnesium supplementation may also reduce the incidence of post-myocardial infarction ventricular dysrhythmias. Thus, some authorities suggest administering it prophylactically to patients after myocar-dial infarction.
