About Calcium Ionised Test

Why is the Calcium Ionised test done?

Ionised calcium is considered the most accurate measure of calcium inside the body of individuals. The ionised calcium level is used to check for any abnormalities or diseases that the person might be suffering from. There are several instances in which calcium ionised test is ordered which include:

  • If the person is receiving blood transfusions
  • If the person is critically ill and living on IV fluids
  • If the person is having a major surgery
  • If there are abnormal levels of blood proteins in the individual
  • If any of these cases are occurring, it is important to measure how much free calcium is inside the body.
What does the Calcium Ionised test measure?

Calcium is one of the essential minerals that the body needs. The body uses calcium to improve bone strength and teeth while also improving muscle and nerve functions. Free calcium and bound calcium make up about 50-50 of all the calcium in the body. Therefore, if there is any disbalance in that distribution, it could signify a major disorder.

The test is basically used to quantify the free calcium level in the body. Low levels of free calcium in the body could lead to abnormal heartbeat rates in individuals, muscle spasms, or even coma in severe cases. If there is numbness around the mouth or in the individual’s limbs, the calcium ionised test is used for that purpose.

A calcium serum test is the one most commonly done. It measures the level of free as well as bound calcium inside the body. A doctor must be contacted if there are any abnormalities.

Risk/Side-effects of Calcium Ionised test

Generally, there is very little risk of any major symptoms inside the body. The person might feel slight pain (or some bruising) in the area where the needle has been pierced to take the blood. But those tend to disappear pretty quickly and not cause any major problems to the patient. In very rare cases, the patient might develop blood collection under the skin or infection at the site where the needle was pierced. But that is a very rare occurrence and nothing major to worry about.
