Potassium chloride - ready-to-use infusion bags

Hello everybody

Our pharmacy wants to provide potassium chloride solutions in ready-to-use infusion bags. They proposed a concentraton of KCl 20 mmol/500 ml (= 0.04 mmol/ml).
But we received feedback that with this concentration patients will receive too much fluids.
What kind of ready-to-use KCl are you using?

Many thanks
