Blood electrolyte imbalances

Blood Electrolyte Imbalances

There are several different types of electrolytes that can be found in body fluids located within the plasma, interstitial fluid, or intracellular fluid. Each electrolyte has a specific function, so having too much or too little of any component can cause several issues to arise. Being able to recognize the immediate symptoms of either deficiencies or excess can mean the difference between life and death.

Assignment 1 (write 200 – 300 words in APA style)

Choose only one of the following electrolytes to research further:

  • sodium
  • chloride
  • potassium
  • calcium
  • phosphate
  • magnesium

Then in your main post, answer the following questions:

  1. List the name and normal ranges of your chosen electrolyte.
  2. If deficient, list the name of the condition present and describe the causes, signs and symptoms associated with your chosen electrolyte.
  3. If in excess, list the name of the condition present and describe the causes, signs and symptoms associated with your chosen electrolyte.
  4. A patient’s blood work is showing abnormal ranges (either higher or lower) of your chosen electrolyte. Describe how the body will respond to fix this imbalance.
  5. Describe how these abnormal ranges can be fixed medically?

Assignment 2

  1. Develop your own short case study to present to the class. For example, your case study may state something like: An elderly patient is complaining of a headache and dizziness upon standing. His blood pressure is 90/75 mm Hg and his lab work is showing a blood sodium level of 105 mEq/L. What is your diagnosis?
