Define Millimole (mmol)? 1/1000 of a mole *glucose is sometimes measured in mmols/L
Define Milliequivalent (mEq)? 1/1000 of an equivalent *An equivalent is the amount of an ionized substance that has electrochemical binding power equal to one mole of hydrogen ions. *Electrolytes, cations, anions, and expressed in milliequivalents
Define Milliomole (mOsm) 1/1000 of an osmole *An osmole is one mole of osmotically active particles. *Osmostic activity of fluids such as blood & urine are expressed in milliosmoles. *Glucose & proteins exert great osmotic influence.
