Fluid and Electrolytes

Fluid and Electrolyte.mp4A healthy body requires an optimum balance of fluids and electrolytes. Total amount of fluid in the body is approximately 70% of the body weight. Electrolytes are minerals in our body that have an electric charge. They are in our blood, urine and body fluids. Maintaining the right balance of electrolytes helps our body’s blood chemistry, muscle action and other processes. Sodium, calcium, potassium, chlorine, phosphate and magnesium are all electrolytes. We get them from the foods and the fluids , which we eat and drink.
Levels of electrolytes in your body can become too low or too high. That can happen when the amount of water in our body changes, causing dehydration or overhydration.

This course is divided into 4 units, which is further sub-divided into different chapters.

Unit 1 : Fluid balance
Unit 2 : Fluid imbalance
Unit 3 : Electrolyte balance
Unit 4 : Electrolyte imbalances
