When we administer an isotonic fluid what occurs in relation to the fluid compartments?
- ECF increases but ICF stays the same
- No change in osmolarity of the compartments
When we administer a hypotonic fluid what occurs in relation to the fluid compartments?
- Some of the ECF fluid will go to the ICF, but ECF volume will be expanded as well
- The ICF receives fluid from the ECF: a greater increase than the ECF is experienced
- Both ICF and ECF osmolarity decrease
When we administer an hypertonic fluid what occurs in relation to the fluid compartments?
- Water leaves the ICF and goes to the ECF
- In the ECF the volume is enlarged by both the influx of ICF, and the administration of the fluid.
- Both compartments increase in osmolarity

What is a hyptonic fluid's tonicity?
What is a hypertonic fluid's tonicity?
What are isotonic fluid used for?
Expanding the Extra cellular fluid compartment. Very little will move into the cell

How much (in percentage) of an isotonic fluid stays in the plasma?
Why does so much of an Iso IVF move to the interstitium?
The interstitium is about three times the volume of the plasma
What is the tonicity of D5W?
Isotonic initially but after the dextrose is metabolized all that is left is the free water
What is the effect of the free water left behind an administration of of D5W?
The cells will swell until equilibration occurs.
What are the relative ratio's of ICF and ECF?
When we give a liter of D%W, how much in volume goes to ICF, interstitial, and plasma?
- ICF 670 ml's or 2/3
- interstitial 250
- plasma 83
Why do we give dextrose in solutions?
- to provide calories, this:
- -spares the breakdown of proteins
- -and prevent ketosis from oxidation of fat
- -can help to move K+ from ECF to ICF
What is the maximum rate of dextrose that can be given?
- 0.5 gram/kg/hr rates exceeding this will precipitate glycosuria
- or 700 ml/hr for the average 70 kg male
Why do we use LR?
- they are near physiologic in their electrolyte concentration
- Isotonic and surgical losses are isotonic
Why is lactate added to LR?
to buffer the solution: It is metabolized to HCO3
Giving too much NS can result in what?
hyperchloremic metabolic acidosis
What acid base imbalance can metabolized lactate in LR precipitate?
metabolic alkalosis with large infusions
If the patient has renal failure or hyperkalemia should you use LR?
LR has K+ so we would need to be cautious in these pt's
If we are doing a case where large volumes of crystaloid need to be given, how might we choose the fluids?
we may need to alternate bags of LR and NS.
If our 70 kg pt loses 2L during surgery and his total predicted blood volume is 5L, what is his percent blood loss?

3mls for every 1 of blood
What patients are at risk for hypoglycemia?
Infants and pt's who are on insulin
Osmotic diuresis can occur when we?
administer too much glucose in our fluid in surgery
Why would we want to avoid Glycosuria?
it would have the opposite effect of hydration
What are some cases that we would need to replace specific lytes as opposed to general crystaloids?
fluid loss from wounds, gastric suctioning, ascities
When making a fluid plan what types of losses will we replace?
- NPO deficit
- maintenance requirements
- blood loss
- 3rd spacing/tissue trauma
What it the 4-2-1 rule?
- When figuring maintenance fluids we base it on Kg's:
- -4 ml/kg for the first 10 kg +
- -2 ml/kg for the second 10 kg +
- -1 ml/kg for the rest of the kg's Equals total hourly dose
How do we figure NPO deficit?
maintenance dose X#of hours NPO
How do we figure replacement for tissue trauma:
- 4-6 ml/kg/hr minimal
- 6-8 ml/kg/hr moderate
- 8-10 ml/kg/hr extreme
