In what ways are dialysis and isotonic, hypertonic, and hyptotonic solutions related?

In what ways are dialysis and isotonic, hypertonic, and hyptotonic solutions related?

Different Solutions: Tonicity refers to concentrations of molecules that cause water to move from one side of a semipermeable membrane to another. Moving water out of a dialysis patient's blood along with waste products that also need to be removed requires a hypertonic solution. Isotonic means that there is no will be no movement of water, etc. Hypotonic means that water will move back into the patient. ...Read more

What's the difference between hypotonic and hypertonic?

concentration: Hypo, less; hyper, more;iso, equal; tonic refers to concentration. A hypotonic solution has less dissolved particles than an isotonic solution .A hypertonic solution has more dissolved particles than a isotonic solution and many more than a hypotonic one.If all are added together they would commingle & eventually form an isotonic mixture. ...Read more

At what % sodium does a solution become hypertonic? .9% is isotonic, 3% is hypertonic, but where does it change from isotonic to hypertonic? ...2%?

At what % sodium does a solution become hypertonic? .9% is isotonic, 3% is hypertonic, but where does it change from isotonic to hypertonic? ...2%?

Hypertonic : Hypertonic fluid has a sodium content that is greater than that of serum. Human serum has a sodium content of approximately 154 meq/liter. "normal saline" or 0.9% Normal Saline has the same sodium content as serum. Therefore, anything greater than that serum sodium concentration is a hypertonic solution. Examples of this in commercially available forms are 3% or 7% normal saline. ...Read more

Whats the difference between isotonic and isometric exercise?

Whats the difference between isotonic and isometric exercise?

Motion-No Motion: Isometric exercise is where muscle force is exerted without changing the length of the muscle fibers. This is accomplished by pushing or pulling against an immovable object or by simultaneously contracting opposing muscles, such as by pressing the hands together. There is no joint movement. Isotonic occurs when a contracting muscle shortens against a constant load, as when lifting a weight. ...Read more

What are some differences between isotonic exercises versus isokinetic exercises?

What are some differences between  isotonic exercises versus isokinetic exercises?

Types of exercise: Isotonic= if you push against something that is immovable you are experiencing isometric contractions. This may also be called static tension; isokinetic = exercises used in therapeutic settings with a device/ machine to help control the speed of the exercises.

How does 0.1 mg florinef (fludrocortisone) work differently or similarly to 1 tsp salt in gatorade? And wil florinef (fludrocortisone) retain as much sodium as the sodium in gatorade?

How does 0.1 mg florinef (fludrocortisone)  work differently or similarly to 1 tsp salt in gatorade?   And wil florinef (fludrocortisone) retain as much sodium as the sodium in gatorade?

Complicated: That is a complicated answer. Florinef (fludrocortisone) is a mineralocorticoid ( a steroid) that prevents loss of sodium into the urine. So if you are prescribed Florinef (fludrocortisone) you likely have a salt losing kidney issue. So if you in fact do have that problem the salt that you take in will be excreted into the urine and will not help expand your blood volume. ...Read more
