    Transcript
    Students have always asked me "Dr. Raj, I am having a hard time keeping straight and organized the feedback mechanisms for water and sodium pathophysiology." This is probably the most important section here. You go through as far as laying down the foundation of figuring out the two compartments of ECF and ICF. What kind of hormones would be involved and a little bit of a clinical tag that I will be putting in for you along with the physiology so that you clearly know how to move on to in the next lecture series of isotonic, hypotonic and hypertonic fluid disorders. Let us now begin. Basic definitions. Well, it comes down to the kidneys, doesn't it really? Really. In terms of being able to properly control and regulate your fluids. Electroneutrality of body fluid compartments become importance of back and basic physiology when you are dealing with action potentials and all. And you are dealing with electroneutrality whenever you have a positive ion such as sodium, of course, being the most infamous of them all and along with it must be a chloride so that you can have proper electroneutrality as an example. Composition between ICF and ECF is basically what this line is saying. For example, when we talked about total body water, you should know that majority of your total body water is where? Good. ICF. 2/3, isn't it? Simple things that you knew and you know that you keep repeating so that it becomes part of your unconscious reflex. ECF, would you tell me as to what is the most important component clinically for us to measure in your ECF. And you're telling me the vascular compartment, isn't it? The plasma compartment. The effective circulating volume compartment. All of this is the same name. They are...
