Fluid and Electrolyte Imbalances: Prevention and Management

Ensuring that our body’s fluids and electrolytes are in balance is crucial for life and homeostasis. Preventing and managing fluid and electrolyte imbalances is common in clinical practices. If an imbalance occurs, it must be corrected or it can adversely affect multiple body systems including the neurologic, cardiovascular and skeletal systems. When the amount of water in your body either increases or decreases, electrolytes can become too high or too low. When this happens, close monitoring is necessary. The most common fluid imbalance is hypovolemia or low blood volume, which is most often the result of dehydration. The most common electrolyte imbalances are sodium and potassium. You may also see imbalances in calcium, magnesium and phosphorus, however these are less frequent. This module will discuss hypovolemia, dehydration, and sodium and potassium imbalances. Since you will be providing care to individuals with fluid and electrolyte imbalances, it is important for you to understand the fundamental concepts of body fluid and electrolytes. Additionally, you should be knowledgeable of the signs and symptoms, treatment, and prevention of each of these imbalances.
