Essential fluid, electrolyte and pH homeostasis

This textbook provides a unique, pocket-sized, self-directed study guide to fluid, electrolyte and acid base homeostasis for undergraduate biomedical science, pharmacology, medical and allied health students. It details the chemical (mostly ionic) composition of body fluids, explains how abnormalities arise, what laboratory tests  can be used to identify and analyze the cause of these disorders and shows how normality can be achieved to maintain health
