Solutions have more concentrate than serum....cause movement of water from cells into the ECF (cell shrinks)
- Hypertonic Solutions:
- D5 in LR
- D5 in 1/2 NS
- D5 in NS
- 10% Dextrose in H2O
Solution is less concentrated than serum....cause water to go into cell (cell swells).
- Hypotonic Solutions:
- 1/2 NS
Same osmolarity as serum, Increase ECF volume. Do not enter cells.
- Isotonic Solutions:
- D5 in water
Plasma expanders. Colloids pull fluid from the interstitial space into the vascular compartment. Used to increased volume rapidly, such as in hemorrhage or severe hypovolemia.
Solutions contain electrolytes, may be used for fluid volume replacement.
