The aim of this study was to assess the relationship between admission serum potassium and one-year mortality in hospitalized patients. A cohort of 73,983 hospitalized adult patients at a tertiary referral hospital was analyzed. The lowest one-year mortality was associated with admission serum potassium of 4.0–4.4 mEq/L. Low admission serum potassium ≤3.9 mEq/L and elevated admission serum potassium ≥5 mEq/L were significantly associated with an increased risk of one-year mortality, when compared with admission serum potassium of 4.0–4.4 mEq/L. Subgroup analysis of chronic kidney disease and cardiovascular disease patients showed similar results.View this paper.
