Sample text

True hypochloremic patients have a decrease in the number of chloride ions, which results in a metabolic alkalosis. Corrected hypochloremia, after confirming by the formula for corrected chloride, will show a decrease in chloride with a likelihood of alkalosis. If pseudohypochloremia has been ruled out then a cause for the hypochloremia should be sought. These patients may have an excess of bicarbonate, administration of something containing more sodium than chloride (compared to ECF), or an increase in the loss of chloride from the body.

Nursing care and monitoring In addition to the general monitoring of hydration and neurologic status discussed in the nursing care of hyperosmolar hyponatremia, fluid intake ­ should be quantitated and recorded, possibly being restricted when necessary.

Regulation of potassium About 90% of the ingested potassium is absorbed in the small intestines. The potassium is then translocated from the extracellular fluid (ECF) to the intracellular fluid (ICF) by the function of insulin and catecholamines such as epinephrine or norepinephrine. Excretion of potassium takes place mainly via the function of the kidneys (90–95%), with the remainder being excreted through the colon (5–10%). In the kidneys, potassium is resorbed in the proximal convoluted tubule (PCT; ~60–70%), and thick ascending limb of the loop of Henle (LoH; ~20%).
