Let’s be very clear about this,  the best way to start studying a new topic is to learn the basic  fundamentals first before diving into the details. That way, you will  not feel overwhelmed because you will understand the bigger picture  first.

This book serves two purposes;  It’s a great introduction for those that want a simple overview, and  it’s also great for students looking for a quick recap that covers the  most important information. How do you best prepare for an exam? If you  don't have the time, you recap the fundamentals.

This book is a must-have for all nursing and medical students looking  to broaden or refreshen their skills of understanding human  pathophysiology. It is perfect for anyone that wishes to work in the  medical field, and it is a great complementary tool to have when  preparing for the NCLEX!

Many students are ordering this book together with other nursing books such as medical surgical nursing.

 To  test your knowledge, we have included multiple-choice questions after  each chapter. The answers to these questions can be found at the very  end. 

There is no doubt,  fluid maintenance remains one of the main foundations of medicine.  Fluids are deemed as being the most essential substance of life. Around  60% of our body is made up of water, and this serves as a medium for  transport of both nutrients and waste products. The electrolytes  contained within the body water are responsible for the body’s most  basic functions, such as nerve function, and functioning of voluntary  and involuntary muscles, activating enzymes, and release of hormones. 

Any patient,  who is presented with a fairly serious medical illness, is bound to  have some kind of imbalance in the fluid-electrolyte levels. All  patients in intensive care units are routinely screened for such  imbalances. Thus, it is apparent that a medical professional needs to  have a firm grasp of the fundamentals of electrolytes, fluids and  acid-base balance in the body, so that effective treatment can be  carried out.

In this  book, we will discuss the regulation of fluids, electrolytes, and the  acid-base system, and how these factors are interconnected. When there  is an imbalance in one of these electrolytes, the others are usually  affected. Similarly, electrolyte imbalances can arise from, or be a  result of, acid-base disorders. We will also discuss the signs and  symptoms of various imbalances, and touch upon the management modalities  for these imbalances. Common medical conditions where there are massive  imbalances are described in the last chapter. There are summaries at  the end of each chapter, that help you quickly glance through essential  information.

With this book you will:

  • ..Understand why Fluids and Electrolytes is such an important topic for clinicians
  • ..Learn and understand the basic fundamentals
  • ..Be able to test your knowledge with multiple-choice questions
