Abstract

Certain diseases often lead to serious alterations in the water and electrolyte balance. It is easy to overlook the seriousness of these changes by failing to take into consideration the total amount of solute present. The concentration of solutes in body fluids is expressed as milligrams (or grams) per 100 ml, whereas the electrolyte concentration is expressed as milliequivalents per liter.
