Mg2+ is a toxic chemical that isn't needed in vivo. If magnesium intoxication is suspected the biomedical scientists do blood tests to check plasma concentration. If Mg2+ levels too high then CaCl2 is injected IV.
Other electrolytes are measured the same way.Source(s): MPharm student

Only plasma/serum levels are tested.Source(s): med tech/PA
