Definitions of Hyperkalemia:

Abnormally high potassium concentration in the blood, most often due to defective renal excretion. It is characterized clinically by electrocardiographic abnormalities (elevated T waves and depressed P waves, and eventually by atrial asystole). In severe cases, weakness and flaccid paralysis may occur. (Dorland, 27th ed) - (Source - Diseases Database)

Higher than normal levels of potassium in the circulating blood; associated with kidney failure or sometimes with the use of diuretic drugs - (Source - WordNet 2.1)
