  • Fluid normally shifts between the ICF and ECF compartment each and every day, to help keep our bodies in homeostasis. The principles involved in this shifting are osmosis, diffusion, and filtration.Osmosis is movement of water from low solute concentration to high solute concentration. Passive process.Diffusion – high to lowOsmosisLow to highWater potentialDiffusionHigh to lowMovement of particlesBoth can occur at the same timeHydrostatic Pressure (capillary bed pressure)is the mechanical force of water pushing against a membrane. In the intravascular space, it is the pumping action of the heart that generates this force. at the arterial end of the capillary, hydrostatic pressure forces water, sodium and glucose across the membrane into the interstitial space
  • NUP released due to cardiac distension caused by increase BP or increase in blood volume.Effects : reduce thirst, block ADH release, inhibit RAA system.
  • When conservative Mx fail/irreversible.persistenthyperK, hemodialysis or peritoneal dialysis is required
  • Transcript

    • 1. Fluid and electrolytes
    • 2. Body Fluids
      Body Water (~40L) = 60% of body weight
    • 3. Body fluid compartments
      Intracellular fluid
    • 4. Intracellular Fluid (ICF)
      Fluid within the cells
      Located primarily in skeletal muscle mass
      Provide nutrients for metabolism:
      High in potassium, phosphate, & protein
      Moderate levels of Mg, SO4
      Assists in cellular metabolism
    • 5. Extracellular fluid (ECF)
      - plasma (half of total blood volume)
      - surround all cells (eg. lymph)
      * Some interstitial fluid is TRANSCELLULARor under the influence of metabolic activity
      - respiratory fluid - pericardial fluid
      - GI digestive fluid - peritoneal fluid
      - CSF - intraocular fluid
      - pleural fluid - synovial fluid
      - gland secretions (sweat, enzymes)
    • 6. Extracellular fluid (ECF)
      Surrounds cells
      Transport medium for nutrients, gases, waste products and other substances between blood and body cells
      Back-up fluid reservoir
      Nutrients for cell functioning
      Fatty acids
      Amino Acids
    • 7. Fluid Movement
      Fluid movement is constant and is influenced by:
      1. membrane permeability
      Active : require energy to transport eg. Na/K pump
      Passive : osmosis, diffusion, hydrostatic force
      2. colloid osmotic pressure (plasma proteins)
      3. hydrostatic pressure (cap. bed pressure)
      Mechanical force of water pushing against membrane
      Forces H2O, Na, glucose to go across membrane to interstitial fluid
    • 8. Renal Regulation
      Kidneys are the most important regulators of volume and composition of body fluids
      Hormonal Control
