  1. occurs when a patient donates his or her own blood for a transfusion
    autologous transfusion
  2. movement of ions or molecules across cell membranes, usually against a pressure gradient  and with the use of expenditure of metabolic energy (ATP)
    active transport
  3. pressure exerted by plasma proteins on permeable membranes in the body; synomym for oncotic pressure
    colloid osmotic pressure
  4. tendency of solutes to move freely throughout a solvent from an area of higher concentration to an area of lower concentration until equilibrium is established
    diffusion
  5. passage of a fluid through a permeable membrane whose spaces do not allow certain solutes to pass; passage is from an area of higher pressure to one of lower pressure
    filtration
  6. force exerted by a fluid against the container wall
    hydrostatic pressure
  7. having a greater concentration than the solution with which it is being compared
    hypertonic
  8. having a lesser concentration than the solution with which it is being compared
    hypotonic
  9. having about the same concentration as the solution with which it is being compared
    isotonic
  10. passage of a solvent through a semipermeable membrane from an area of lesser concentration to an area of greater concentration until equilibrium is established
    osmosis
  11. concentration of particles in a solution, or a solution's pulling power
    osmolarity
  12. expression of hydrogen ion concentration and resulting acidity of a substance
    pH
