A number of Very Smart People (including Rob Huang, Minh Le Cong, Chris Nickson, and Reuben Strayer) have all pointed out that Cochrane is supposed to summarize the data, not editorialize:
@DocBrent @HumanFact0rz @CochraneAnaesth cochrane shud stay away from clinical interpretation - just crunch the data, let clinicians decide— Chris Nickson (@precordialthump) November 4, 2015
Ultimately, this isn't that big deal. Hyperkalemia is bad, but rare. But if we can avoid it without worsening time to onset or intubating conditions, why not?
Special thanks to Minh Le Cong & Reuben Strayer for their prepublication peer review.
