Serum Osmolality
The NUMBER of dissolved particles:
(270-)300 mOsm/Kg
Nephrotic Syndrom
Does not filter Albumin, gets to urine -> Edema
Sepsis , overwhelming Gram minus infection
Capillary beds get so big to let plasma protein out. Water follows -> Edema

(English) Perfusion
The process of nutritive delivery of arterial blood to a biological tissue.
(English) Precipitate
To hurry
Baroreceptors Mechanism
⇓ Stroke Volume
Renin-Aldosterone Mechanism
⇓ Renal Perfusion (also: ⇓ Na, ⇑ K, Hypovolemia, and Stress)
ADH (Osmoreceptors)
Water Retention Mechanism:
(HIGH:)Pituitary Gland secretes ADH
Urine Output
30cc/Hr Normal in a hospital setting
Atrial Naturetic Peptide:
Counteracts Aldosterone, ADH. Hypervolemia, Hypernatrimeia -Strech of atria - vasodialation, release of Na, release of water - Lower blood volume, blood pressure, preload, afterload.
1. Normal Urinary Output/Day
2. How to assess total fluid output?
1. ~1500cc.
Healthy Person: 60cc/Hr. Hospital: 30cc/Hr
2. Urine+1000cc insensible
Insensible Loss/Day
Daily Baseline Fluid Requirment
25-30ml/kg/day (less if obese, old, or head injury). Fever:15% increase.

Via GI tract

Any route OTHER THAN GI tract (Intravenous)
What are:

Salem Sump Tube
Small, single lumen tube. Cannot decompress stomach.

Larger double lumen tube. Can decompress.
What are they associated with?
Lung "crackles:. Fluid in lungs.
Secondary to: L Vent Failure or FVE
Fluid Volume Assessment
1. Skin Integrity.
2. Turgor.
3. Buccal Mucosa.
4. Lung Sounds (rales. +L. Vent Failure).
5. Heart sound S3 (FVE).
6. SOB (FVE)Veins in hands.
7. Jugular Vein (+R Vent Failure) . JVD
8. BP
9. Orthostatic BP.
10. Pulse pressure. Should be >30
11. Quality of pulse
12. Weight. In hospital 0.25-0.5 loss is normal.
13. I/O ALWAYS for 24Hrs.
14. H/H
15. Serum Osmolality
16. BUN:Cr and H/H(elevated: FVD,Lowered: FVE)
17. Urine Specific Gravity
18. CVP (Central Vein Pressure)
19. PAWP (pulmonary Artery Wedge Pressure)
20. Cardiac Output/ Cardiac Index (Indexed to pt body surface)
21. Edema ONLY when coupled with JVD
Pulse Pressure
Normal value?
Gross Assess. for STROKE VOLUME.
Should be 60-80. If <30, FVD!
Central Vein Pressure (Subclavian or Jugular)
Less - FVD.
More FVE +R Vent Failure
Pulmonary Arterial Wedge Pressure
6-12 mmHg
Jugular Vein Distention
Urine Specific Gravity
1.Urimeter measures Number, Size, and Weight of particles.
1.001- 1.035
2. Fast and Inexpensive way of Objective Fluid Balance
3. Note: Renal Failure: 1.010 fixed. Unknown reason.
Serum Osmolality
1. Number of dissolved substances regardless of size, weight.
2. Measured compared to BLOOD.
3. 50-290-1200 mOsm/Kg
Normal weight Loss in hospital
0.5 lb/day max is OK
Fluid Volume Deficit:
Physical Findings
• skin turgor - delayed
• weight loss (Unless 3rd spacing)
• postural B/P, dizziness, syncope
• ⇓Central Venous Pressure- the measure of right ventricular preload,
• weak rapid pulse; ⇑ temperature
• generally output > intake
• mucous membranes dry, sunken eyeballs
• flat neck veins (CVP less than 4 mm Hg)
• Here’s another method to add to your bag of tricks, check the hand veins - put hands in dependent position, if it takes > 5 sec think Hypovolemia
• urine concentrated (dark yellow), sp. gravity . Oliguria < cc QD.
• labs Hct ⇑ (female 36-46%, male 39-55%);  BUN (5-15 mg/dl)

NOTE: Weight change outweighs Urine Output.
1. Supine
2. Fowler
3. Semi Fowler
4. Trendelendberg

2. Sit up 90 degree
3. Sit up 45 degree
4. Flat. Feet higher than head (shock, inserting/changing central line - air emboli)
5. Flat, Head Higher than Feet
Where blood goes?
Hoe effect Preload?
Dialation - More blood goes to extremities.
Constriction - Less blood to extremities, more in the core. More gets back to heart CVP increases.
