  • 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
