Fluids, Electrolytes, and Acid-Base Balance by Mary Ann HoganFor course review on a specific topic, e.g., medical-surgical nursing, review for NCLEX-RN, and review for specialty training. This resource provides a core content review of the subject in outline format. Each chapter opens with a brief outline, objectives, key terms with definitions, media box with summary of CD and CW content, as well as a pre-test. The pre-test and post-test guide the student through a self-paced review. Other features unique to this resource help further enhance the review process.

Fluid status, electrolyte homeostasis, and acid-base balance are clinical parameters of critical significance in surgical patients. Understanding normal physiology and pathophysiology related to these parameters is crucial. Surgical patients are at high risk for derangements of body water distribution, electrolyte homeostasis, and acid-base physiology. These disturbances may be secondary to trauma, preexisting medical conditions which alter normal physiology, or the nature of the surgery. The percentage in any individual is influenced by age and lean body mass, therefore the percentage is higher in men compared to women, in children compared to adults, and in people of normal body habitus compared to the obese Table 9—1.
Cells maintain a balance, or homeostasis, by transference of fluid and electrolytes in and out of the cell. This fluid constantly bathes the cell.
