Orally, KCl is toxic in excess; the LD50 is around 2500 mg/kg (meaning that a lethal dose for 50% of people weighing 75 kg (165 lb) is about 190 g (6.7 ounces), or about 38 teaspoons). Table salt is about as toxic. Intravenously this is reduced to just over 100 mg/kg, but of more concern are its severe effects on the cardiac muscles; high doses can cause cardiac arrest and rapid death, ergo its aforementioned use as the third and final drug delivered in the lethal injection process.

narcotic followed by a lethal dose of potassium chloride.
Yes, it is extremely dangerous, 1g is the lethal dose.
In large enough amounts, yes. The United States and a few other countries use a massive dose of potassium chloride to carry out executions by lethal injection. Elemental potassium can also be deadly. It will react explosively with water, setting itself on fire and producing caustic potassium hydroxide.
The human lethal dose of sodium chloride (LD50) is 3 g NaCl/kg body.
It's used as the third and final injection in the "lethal injection" method of execution in order to stop the heart. An certain quantity of potassium and chloride is essential for various biochemical functions in the body (particularly in the brain and muscles), but in large quantities it can be harmful. The oral LD50 is around 2500 mg/kg body weight. The intravenous lethal dose is much lower.
In lethal injections it is the third drug that is used to stop the heart.
Consumption of a large dose of potassium ions, such as potassium chloride, induces a vomiting reflex to expel most of the potassium before it can be absorbed
sodium thiopental, pancuronium bromide, and potassium chloride all given in order

No, potassium chloride contains potassium chloride.
Some of them are:Sodium thiopentalPancuroniumPotassium chlorideThese drugs are used in lethal injections.
enough of a drug, if you take a lethal dose, it will kill you.
there is no lethal dose of birth control
It is potassium chloride + iodine = potassium iodine + chloride.

by weight KCL (potassium chloride) is 52.445% potassium.
Potassium chloride is react with AgNO3 , the chloride ion subtract from potassium chloride to form silver chloride precipitate and potassium nirate. KCl + AgNO3 → KNO3 + AgCl↓
Evaporate the solvent, the potassium chloride will form crystals.
It is used as the lethal injection when executing someone - so great care and ethical considerations have to be taken
No, potassium chloride is a compound.
Potassium chloride is not flammable.
You NEED potassium to make potassium chloride.
