Low Magnesium Level
was it possible this caused a cardiac arrest during anesthetic recovery?
Conisalus - Magnesium is one of the important minerals for the muscles. Leg cramps can be relieved by taking a half teaspoon of Epsom Salt and drinking a glass of water. Double that and you have taken one of the oldest and best laxitives....... Magnesium is especially soothing to the Heart Muscle!..... I take a quarter teaspoon of Epsom Salts every day because I sweat a lot and am very athletic. Older people need good levels of MG and Epsom Salts are good and cheap insurance.....Don't take too much or you'll get a loose gut so if Diarrhea shows up, cut back a little...Highly Recommended!
