Module 1 : Physiology

 

 

Welcome to module 1

 

This module concerns the physiology of fluids in health and disease states.

 

The learning objectives for this module are:

 

1. Have an appreciation of the ways in which water is lost and gained in health and in disease.


2. Understand how water is distributed into body compartments in health and disease. Later it will be explained how this influences the choice of IV fluid replacement.


3. Appreciate that electrolytes are lost alongside fluids and therefore fluid replacement often requires electrolyte supplementation to maintain this homeostasis.
