MAGNESIUM SUPPLEMENTATION IN CYSTIC FIBROSIS; SAVING AN INFANT
AbstractHypo-magnesaemia is an under diagnosed condition in patients of cystic fibrosis. Here a case is reported of an imminent complete respiratory failure, which was avoided by the timely administration of Magnesium Sulphate. The case report is followed by a brief recent literature search about hypo magnesaemia and perioperative management of cystic fibrosis.
