  1. I.....
    have normal serum level of 3.5-5.0mEq/L
    am no conserved
    am needed for muscle contraction
    am a major cation of the ICF
    am instrumental in muscle, nerve impulse transmission
    have a reciprocal action to Na+
    am excreted primarily by the kidneys
    I AM POTASSIUM
  2. I.....
    am the main ECF anion
    am found in GI fluid, blood, interstitial fluid and lymph
    have a normal serum level of 95-105mEq/L
    pair up with Na+
    am excreted or conserved by the kidney
    am down, so is K+ and when i am up so is K+
    help to maintain osmotic pressure
    I AM CHLORIDE
  3. I....
    am the main electrolyte in water
    have normal serum level of 135-145mEq/L
    mainly regulated reasbsorption or excretion through the kidneys but may be lost through the skin and GI tract
    am important to the fuctioning of nervous and muscle tissues
    am a risk for alterations from my normal levels anytime fluid volumes change
    assist with fluid regulation. In fact I am the primary regulator of ECF
    I AM SODIUM
  4. I...
    am excreted in urine, feces, bile, digestive secretions.
    am found mainly in teeth and bones
    play a major role in muscle, neuromuscular and cardiac function
    am stimulated by vitamin D
    am low in the presence of high serum phosphate levels
    have a normal serum level of 9mg/dl-11mg/dl
    am part of the intrinsic pathway and blood coagulation
    am reciprocal with phosphorus
    I AM CALCIUM
  5. I...
    have a normal serum value of 1.2mEq/L-3mEg/l
    am important in acid base balance, metabolism, ATP, and hereditary traits
    am at risk of depletion when people are malnourished
    have an inverse relationship with calcium
    I AM PHOSPHATE
  6. I....
    am present in heart, bone, nerve, muscle tissue
    maintain normal intercellular levels of K+
    have a normal serum level of 1.5mEq/L-2.5mEq/L
    am absorbed in the intestines and excreted by the kidneys
    am important in cardiac and muscle functioning
    I AM MAGNESIUM
