IV solutions

IV solutions catergorized by osmolarity

QuestionAnswer
Isotonic Solution has same osmolarity as the serum & other body fluids
Hypotonic solution has a lower osmolarity than serum & other body fluids.

Hypotonic Action: hydrates cells; pulls fluids from vascular space into cellular space.
Hypotonic Indication: tx of hypertonic dehydration
Isotonic Action: hydrates extracellular compartment; replaces fluid volume w/o disrupting the intracellular & interstitial volumes
Isotonic Indication: tx of vascular dehydration; replaces sodium chloride
Hypertonic Action: draws fluid out of intracellular space; leading to increased extracellular volume both in vascular & interstitial space
Hypertonic Indication: tx of hypotonic dehydration; tx of circulatory collapse; increase fluid shift from interstitial space to vascular space.
