7 What are the factors that influence body fluids? body fluids ↑ in younger than olderAgeBody fat content Thin people > obese as fat cells contain little waterMale>FemaleSexEnvironmental factors
8 The body fluid composition of tissue varies by Tissue type (lean tissues have higher fluid content than fat tissues)Gender (males have more lean tissue and therefore more body fluid)Age (lean tissue is lost with age and body fluid is lost with it)
9 Water is essential for life, HOW??? Water is vital to health and normal cellular function as it is amedium for metabolic reactions within cells.transporter for nutrients and waste products.lubricant.Help in regulating and maintaining body temperature.60% of the average healthy adult’s weight is water
10 Major Compartments for Fluids (Distribution of body fluids) EXTRACELLULAR FLUID ECF (37 % of fluids is Outside cell)Intravascular fluid - within blood vessels (5%)Interstitial fluid - between cells & blood vessels (15%)Trancellular fluid - cerebrospinal, pericardial , synovialINTRACELLULAR FLUID (ICF 63% of fluids)Inside cellMost of body fluid (40% weight)Decreased in elderly
14 Distribution of body fluids Total body fluids =40 litersExtracellular Fluid (ECF)15 LInterstitial Fluid75%Intravascular Fluid20%Lymph +Trans-cellular fluid5%Intracellular Fluid (ICF)25 L
15 Fluids Extracellular fluids include Tissue fluid found between the cells within tissues and organs of the body (interstitial)Plasma, the fluid portion of blood that carries the blood cells (intravascular)Trans-cellular fluid - cerebrospinal, pericardial , synovial
16 Electrolytes Body fluid is composed of Electrolytes which are mineral salts dissolved in water, including for example:SodiumPotassiumChloridePhosphorus
17 What is meant by ELECTROLYTES? *Substance when dissolved in body fluids charged ions & is able to carry an electrical current conducting electricity.* It can be:CATION - positively charged electrolyteANION - negatively charged electrolyte*No. Cations = No. Anions for homeostasis*Commonly measured in milliequivalents / liter (mEq/L)
18 WHAT IS THE IMPORTANCE OF ELECTROLYTES Maintaining fluids balanceContributing to acid-base regulationFacilitating enzyme reactionTransmitting neuromuscular reactions
20 MILLIEQUIVALENT (mEq) Unit of measure for an electrolyteDescribes electrolyte’s ability to combine & form other compoundsEquivalent weight is amount of one electrolyte that will react with a given amount of hydrogen1 mEq of any cation will react with 1 mEq of an anion
21 DEFINITIONS SOLUTE - substance dissolved SOLVENT - solution in which the solute is dissolvedSELECTIVELY PERMEABLE MEMBRANES - found throughout body cell membranes & capillary walls; allow water & some solutes to pass through them freely
22 Movement of Body Fluids and Electrolytes It can be by:Diffusion?Osmosis?Filtration?Active transport
23 METHODS OF FLUID & ELECTROLYTE MOVEMENT 1- Passive TransportDiffusionOsmosisFiltration2- Active Transportusing energy (ATP)
25 DIFFUSIONProcess by which a solute ( ions and molecules) in solution moves as gas or substanceMolecules move from an area of higher concentration to an area of lower concentration to evenly distribute the solute in the solutionIt can be simple or facilitated diffusion
28 FACILITATED DIFFUSION Involves carrier system that moves substance across a membrane with simple diffusion , (from area of higher concentration to one of lower concentration)Example is movement of glucose with assistance of insulin across cell membrane into cell
30 OSMOSISMovement of the solution =solvent = water across a membrane to equalizes the concentration of ions (solute)on each side of membraneMovement of solvent molecules across a membrane to an area where there is a higher concentration of solute that cannot pass through the membrane
33 OSMOTIC PRESSUREPull that draws solvent through the membrane to the more concentrated side (or side with solute )It is determined by relative number of particles of solute on side of greater concentration
34 COLLOID OSMOTIC PRESSURE OR ONCOTIC PRESSURE Special kind of osmotic pressure Created by substances with a high molecular weight (like albumin)
35 ISOTONIC ISO - means alike TONICITY - refers to osmotic activity of body fluids; tells the extent that fluid will allow movement of water in & out cellMeans that solutions on both sides of selectively permeable membrane have established equilibriumAny solution put into body with the same osmolality as blood plasma.
37 HYPOTONIC HYPERTONIC Solution of lower osmotic pressure Less salt or more water than isotonicIf infused into blood, RBCs draw water into cells ( can swell & burst )Solutions move into cells causing them to enlargeSolution of higher osmotic pressure3% sodium chloride is exampleIf infused into blood, water moves out of cells & into solution (cells wrinkle or shrivel)Solutions pull fluid from cells
38 HYPOTONIC SOLUTIONS 5% DEXTROSE & WATER 0.45% SODIUM CHLORIDE
42 OSMOLALITYMeasure of solution’s ability to create osmotic pressure & thus affect movement of water (tonicity)Number of osmotically active particles per kilogram of waterPlasma osmolality is * mOsm/ kgECF osmolality is determined by sodiumMEASURE used in clinical practice to evaluate serum & urine
44 Osmolality In Clinical Practice * Serum mOsm/kgUrine mOsm/kgSerum osmolality can be estimated by doubling serum sodiumUrine specific gravity measures the kidneys’ ability to excrete or conserve water
45 Osmolality In Clinical Practice * BUN - blood urea nitrogen; made up of urea an end-product of protein metabolism.inc. with protein intake, fever, & sepsis; dec. with starvation, end-stage liverdx., low protein diet, expanded fluid vol. (as with pregnancy)
46 Osmolality In Clinical Practice * Creatinine - end product of muscle metabolism; better indicator of renal function; normal level mg/d LHematocrit - vol. % of RBCs in whole blood; normal level in male %In female %
47 FILTRATIONMovement of fluid and solutes together through a selectively permeable membrane from an area of higher hydrostatic pressure to an area of lower hydrostatic pressureArterial end of capillary has hydrostatic pressure > than osmotic pressure so fluid & diffusible solutes move out of capillary
48 HYDROSTATIC PRESSUREForce of the fluid pressing outward against vessel wallWith blood not only refers to weight of fluid against capillary wall but to force with which blood is propelled with heartbeat“Fluid- pushing pressure inside a capillary”*
50 ACTIVE TRANSPORT SYSTEM Moves molecules or ions uphill against concentration & osmotic pressureRequires specific “carrier” molecule as well as specific enzyme (ATP)Hydrolysis of adenosine triphosphate (ATP) provides energy neededSodium-potassium pump is an active transport system. It moves substances from area of low solutes concentration to a higher one
52 REMEMBER MOVEMENT OF SOLUTE ONLY (SUBSTANCE) DEFUSION MOVEMENT OF SOLVENT ((SOLUTION OR WATERONLYOSMOSISMOVEMENT OF BOTHSOLUT AND SOLVENT from area of higher hydrostatic pressure to lower oneFELTERATIONMOVEMENT OF ION OR MOLECULES AGAINST CONCENTRATION OR OSMOTIC PREASSUREACTIVE TRANSPORT
54 Regulating Body Fluids I- Fluid intake:In health by:DrinkingEating In illness by:Parenteral route (IV – SC)Enteral feeding (in the stomach or intestine)
55 II- Fluid output:Organs of fluids loss:KidneySkinLungsG I T
56 Homeostatic Mechanisms Kidneys:The kidneys are functioning under the mastering of aldosterone and antidiuretic hormone (ADH).Regulate electrolytes levels in the ECF by selective retention of needed substances and excretion of unneeded substances.Regulate pH of ECF by excretion or retention of hydrogen ions.Heart and Blood Vessels:If pumping action of the heart fails, it will interfere with the renal perfusion and thus water and electrolytes regulation.
57 Homeostatic Mechanisms cont. Lungs:Remove 300 ml of water daily.Cough will ↑ the loss of water.Mechanical ventilation + excessive moisture ↓ loss.Parathyroid Gland:Parathyroid gland secretes parathyroid hormone:It regulates calcium and phosphate balance.It influences Ca++ reabsorption from interstitial and renal tubules
58 Homeostatic Mechanisms cont. Pituitary Gland:Hypothalamus manufactures antidiuretic hormone (ADH) which is stored in the pituitary gland as needed for the maintenance of osmotic pressure of the cells by controlling renal water retention or excretion and control blood volume.Adrenal Gland:Adrenal gland secretes aldosterone↑ Secretion of aldosterone → sodium retention → water retention → potassium loss.↓ Secretion of aldosterone → sodium loss→ water loss→ potassium retention.

72 NURSING MANAGEMEMT OF FVD Monitoring I&O on a regular schedule depending on the patientIf urine output is below 30 mL / hr. notify the physicianMay check urine specific gravity q 8hrs.Weigh patient daily at the same time & recognize that a change of 2.2 lbs. represents a loss of 1000 mLMonitor skin turgor, oral membranes, lab
73 Dehydration !!!! Water isn’t replaced in body Fluid shifts from cells to EC spaceCells lose waterHappens in confused, comatose, bedridden persons along with infants & elderlyMay be treated with hypotonic sol (like dextrose 5% in water)
75 Dehydration cont. Risk Factors (Causes) Insufficient intake due to anorexia, nausea, impaired swallowing, confusion, depression.Loss of water and electrolytes from: vomiting, diarrhea, nasogastric suction, excessive sweating, fever, polyuria, abdominal drainage, or wound losses.
76 Nursing intervention in dehydration Oral fluid is given at frequent intervals in a small amount.Replace the lost electrolyte.Frequent mouth care.Replace fluids by enteral or parenteral route if oral replacement can not tolerate.Prevent skin breakdown.
77 FLUID VOLUME EXCESS FVE FVE is a result of expansion of fluid compartment due to increase in total sodium content .Fluid excess in the intravascular space is called hypervolemia.Fluid excess in interstitial space is called edemaExcess of extra cellular fluid in other body compartment Third space is called. Fluids may be trapped in abdomen, peritoneum (ascites) or plural space (plural effusion).
78 SIGNS & SYMPTOMS OF FVE SOB & orthopnea Edema & weight gain Distended neck veins & tachycardiaIncreased blood pressureCrackles & wheezesMay be ascites & pleural effusionIncrease in CVP

119 Acid-Base Balance Objectives Describing the regulation of acid-base balance in the bodyIdentifying nursing interventions for clients with altered acid-base balance.
120 Which way will the scale tip???* Acidosis vs. Alkalosis
121 DefinitionsAcid: is a substance that can donate hydrogen ions in solution.Strong acid such as hydrochloric acid (HCl)release all the H+.Weak acids like carbonic acid (H2CO3) release some H+.Base or Alkali: is a substance that can accept hydrogen ions in solution.Acidity or alkalinity is measured by pH.
122 DefinitionspH: means the concentration of hydrogen ions [H+] of the solution.In the body, weak acids and weak bases regulate acid-base balance to prevent sudden changes in the pH of the body fluids.Normal pH= 7.35 – 7.45.<7.35 = acidosis, >7.45 = alkalosis
123 ACID-BASE BALANCEGoverned by the regulation of hydrgen ion (H+) concentration in the bodypH = negative logarithm of the H+ concentrationAcids - proton donors & give up H+Bases - H+ acceptorsAcidic - inc. in concentration of H+Basic - dec. in concentration of H+
127 ACID-BASE REGULATORY MECHANISMS CHEMICAL BUFFER SYSTEMS - bicarbonate, phosphate, protein, hemoglobinLUNGS - carbonic acid broken down into CO2 & H2OKIDNEYS - increasing or decreasing bicarbonate ions
128 Regulation of Acid-Base Balance Review of definitions Base – accepts or removes hydrogen ionBuffer- controls the hydrogen ion concentration:Absorbing hydrogen ions when an acid is added ORReleasing hydrogen ions when base is added.Three Buffer Systems:Bicarbonate – operates in lungs & kidneysPhosphate – renal tubulesProtein – Hgb, plasma proteins, & intracellular protein
129 I. Buffer mechanisms The bicarbonate buffer system (HCO3-). important in controlling the pH of extracellular fluids.2. The phosphate buffer system (HPO4 2- and H2PO4 -)important in controlling pH of intracellular fluids3. The protein buffer system.The largest buffer system inside the cells
130 II. Respiratory regulation It controls the rate of CO2 which reacts with water to give carbonic acid which ↑ or ↓ pH of the blood.
131 III. Renal regulationThe kidney excretes hydrogen ions (H+) and forms bicarbonate ions (HCO3 -) in specific amounts as indicated by the pH of the blood.
