Hypocalcaemia

Hypocalcaemia is said to occur when serum calcium is less than 2.12mmol/l. Most laboratories measure total serum calcium, and about 40% of plasma calcium is bound to albumin, so correction has to be made when plasma albumin levels are low or high - (it is the unbound portion which is important).

Few patients experience all the symptoms that have been associated with hypercalcemia (see Table 2 below), and some patients may not experience any. Patients with corrected total serum calcium concentrations greater than 14 mg/dL (>7.0 mEq/L or 3.49 mmol/L) are generally symptomatic.[1] It must be emphasized that clinical manifestations are closely related to the rapidity of hypercalcemia onset. Some patients develop signs and symptoms when calcium is only slightly elevated, while others with long-standing hypercalcemia may tolerate serum calcium levels greater than 13 mg/dL (>6.5 mEq/L or 3.24 mmol/L) with few symptoms. Neuromuscular manifestations are generally more marked in elderly than in young individuals.
