What should be the ideal level of potassium in acute MI?

In this video, Dr. Viveka Kumar, Senior Director - Cath Lab, Max Super Speciality Hospital, Saket, will talk on the ideal level of potassium in acute MI. Serum potassium should be 4.5 – 5, if it is lower than this, there is a risk of acute arrhythmic complication. If the patient goes into ventricular tachycardia and ventricular fibrillation with potassium level less than 3.5, then they are difficult to bring them back and can have VTVF, hence potassium level should be kept beyond 3.5 level.
