    Transcript

    00:01 So to conclude our lecture on fluids, electrolytes, and the acid base balance of the body.

    00:08 We recall that there are two main fluid compartments in the body.

    00:12 The intracellular fluid compartment and the extracellular fluid compartment.

    00:19 The bodies fluids contain water and solutes.

    00:23 There are two types of solutes found in our body fluids: Electrolytes, and nonelectrolytes.

    00:30 The most abundant of the electrolytes in our fluids is sodium.

    00:35 It's movement drives the movement of water in and out of our extracellular fluid, our intracellular fluid, and our interstitial fluid.

    00:46 Sodium homeostasis is maintained by hormonal, neural, and chemical controls.

    00:54 The movement of water follows the movement of salt and is driven by osmosis.

    01:02 Acid base balance is important for all of our body's enzymatic processes.

    01:07 Imbalances can lead to acidosis or alkalosis.

    01:13 And finally, blood pH is maintained by buffering systems, respiratory mechanisms, and longer term renal regulation.

    01:23 This concludes our lecture on fluids, electrolytes, and acid base balance.

    01:28 Thank you for listening.
