Answer

Electrolytes

Intravenous calcium chloride or gluconate infusions restore serum calcium levels. Calcium chloride delivers three times more elemental calcium than calcium gluconate.

Calcium carbonate (Caltrate, Oysco 500, Calcium 600, Calcarb 600, Titralac)

Calcium carbonate is indicated to restore and maintain normocalcemia when hypocalcemia is not severe enough to warrant rapid replacement. Calcium carbonate moderates nerve and muscle performance by regulating the action potential excitation threshold.
