Body Fluids: Turnover Rates and Dynamics of Fluid Shifts

  • Esmail Koushanpour
  • Wilhelm Kriz


In the previous chapter, we learned about the normal volumes and compositions of body fluids and their distribution between various compartments. With this background, we are now in a position to consider the dynamics of fluid balance and the factors controlling their turnover, distribution, and shift between body fluid compartments.
