  1. What is normal plasma osmolality?
    275-290 mOsm/kg
  2. Osmolarity vs osmolality
    • Osmolarity- the # of osmoles of solute per liter (L) of solution. osmol/L or Osm/L.
    • Osmolality- the # of osmoles of solute per kilogram of solvent. osmol/kg or Osm/kg.
  3. What mechanisms regulate water balance?
    • (1) Thirst sensation
    • (2) Control of renal H20 excretion by ADH
  4. Where is fluid gained and lost from?
    Gained from oral fluid and solid food, insensible gain of oxidative metabolism. Lost through urine and stool, insensible losses through lungs and skin.
  5. Na - function
    Principal cation in ECF, f(x) as osmotic determinant in regulating ECF volume and water dis'n in body. Determines membrane potential of cells and the active transport of molecules across cell membranes.
  6. Na - regulation
    By kidneys. Aldosterone is an important system, regulated by rennin-angiotensin. Other systems include the SNS, atrial natriuretic peptide, kallikrein-kinin system, various intrarenal mechanisms, and factors that affect renal and medullary blood flow.
  7. Na - deficiency
    • Hyponatremia s/s: HA. n/v, m. cramps, lethargy, restlessness, disorientation, depressed reflexes.
    • Repletion - the targeted rate is 5-10 mEq/kg/d to prevent osmotic demyleniation
