A series of 676 patients with acute myocardial infarction were evaluated with regard to initial serum potassium level, prior diuretic therapy and occurrence of cardiac dysrhythmias during their first 24 hours in a coronary care unit. Serious dysrhythmias (ventricular tachycardia, ventricular fibrillation, and asystole) were significantly more frequent in hypokalemic patients. In this regard no differences were observed between patients on or off prior diuretic therapy.
