Answer

After determining the cause of hypocalcemia, direct the treatment at preventing further episodes of hypocalcemia and avoiding the complications of chronic hypocalcemia. Although uncommon, outpatient evaluation by an endocrinologist or an internist is appropriate in some patients who present to the ED with hypocalcemia. Patients with diseases that predispose them to the development of hypocalcemia should have scheduled appointments with an outpatient provider.
