a method of separating solid particles from a liquid or gas, using filter paper
Movement of materials across the cell membrane by means of chemical activity that allows the cell to admit larger molecules than would otherwise be possible.
Substance produced by renin that causes some vasoconstriction.
Difference between the concentrations of serum cations and anions: determined by measuring the concentrations of sodium cations and chloride and bicarbonate anions.

antidiuretic hormone (ADH)
Substance stored in the posterior pituitary gland that is released in response to changes in blood osmolarity.
arterial blood gas
The oxygen and carbon dioxide content of arterial blood, measured by various methods to assess the adequacy of ventilation and oxygenation and the acid-base status of the body.
Transfusion procedure in which blood is removed from a donor and stored for a time before it is returned to the donor's circulation.

Alteration characterized by the loss of fluids and electrolytes in an isotonic fashion.
fluid volume excess (FVE)
Alteration characterized by the abnormal retention of fluids and electrolytes in an isotonic fashion.
Breakdown of red blood cells and release of hemoglobin as may result from the administration of hypotonic intravenous solutions that cause progressive swelling and rupture of the erythrocytes.
State of relative constancy in the internal environment of the body, maintained naturally by physiological adaptive mechanisms.
Pressure exerted by a liquid.

Dislodging an intravenous catheter or needle from a vein into the subcutaneous space
Device that delivers a measured amount of fluid over a period of time.
insensible water loss
Loss of fluid from the body by evaporation, such as that which normally occurs during respiration.

Liquids within the cell membrane.
at the anode, atoms become
5%DW - D5W
Abnormal condition of high hydrogen ion concentration in the extracellular fluid caused by either a primary increase in hydrogen ions or a decrease in bicarbonate.
Abnormal condition characterized by the significant loss of acid from the body or by increased levels of bicarbonate.
milliequivalents per liter (mEq/L)
Unit of measurement representing the number of grams of the specific electrolyte dissolved in a liter of plasma.
Total influence of a protein on the osmotic activity of plasma water.
Osmotic pressure of a solution expressed in osmols or milliosmols per liter of the solution.
Quantity of a substance in solution in the form of molecules, ions, or both that has the same osmotic pressure as 1 mole of an ideal nonelectrolyte.
Receptor that is sensitive to fluid concentration in the blood plasma and that regulates the secretion of antidiuretic hormone.
Movement of a pure solvent through a semipermeable membrane from a solution with a lower solute concentration to one with a higher solute concentration.
Drawing power for water, which depends on the number of molecules in the solution.
Abnormal condition characterized by increased arterial carbon dioxide concentration, excess carbonic acid, and increased hydrogen ion concentration.

sensible water loss
Water loss that occurs though excess perspiration.
A _______ is a substance that dissolves in a solvent to make a solution.
