Health professionals must master the fundamentals of electrolytes, fluids and acid-base balance in the body, so that effective and appropriate interventions can be implemented. Examine the regulation of fluids, electrolytes, and the acid-base system, and their interconnectedness. An imbalance in one electrolyte can affect other electrolytes and can derive from acid-base disorders. Review the signs and symptoms of various imbalances, and the management modalities for these imbalances. Learning Objectives
