Some useful information

Some useful information

-1 Mol OF Glucose solution?

- 1 Mol NaCl solution?

In the ECF, max contribution to

Osmolalirty is by NaCl

  • One osmole is 1 gram molecular weight of undissociated solute.

  • Eg. 1 osmole of glucose = 180 grams of glucose , is equal to 1 osmole of glucose because glucose does not dissociate.

  • 1 gram molecular weight of NaCl (58.5 gm) is equal to 2 osmole because NaCl dissociates into Na+ and Cl- (both are osmotically active).

  • Osmolality A solution that has 1 osmole of solute dissolved in 1 Kilogram of water

  • Osmolarity A solution that has 1 osmole of solute dissolved in in 1 liter (1000 ml) of water .

  • Conventionally: because of low concentration, solute dissolved in mg/litre of water or Kg of H2O milliOsmole (mOsm)

  • Normal Osmolarity of plasma is about 300 mOsm/L


Osmolarity osmolality

Osmolarity/Osmolality

  • Is a measure of the total number of dissolved particles in a solution

  • Ionic composition of the ICF fluidisdifferent from that of ECF

  • But Osmolarity of ICF is equal to that of ECF.


Concept of osmotic pressure

Concept of osmotic pressure

Osmosis: Diffusion of H2O

Across semi permeable

membrane From high H2O

concentration to low

H2O concentration. In tissues

- via lipid bilayer

-Through water channels

(acquaporins)

H2O

H2O

Solute

Movement of H2O

Osmotic pressure is the

pressure which is applied

at the membrane to

oppose osmosis

Semi-permeable membrane

Osmotic pressure is directly proportional

To the osmolarity (solute concentration)


Concept of hydrostatic pressure

Concept of hydrostatic pressure

Pressure = 2 mmHg

Pressure = 30 mmHg


Principle of osmosis

Principle of Osmosis

Osmosis is the net movement of water molecules through a selectively permeable membrane

During osmosis water molecules pass through a selectively permeable membrane in two ways (1) through the lipid bilayer and (2) through aquaporins (aqua = water) channels.


Body fluid compartments and fluid balance

The osmosis, diffusion, filtration and reabsoption provide for continual exchange of water and solutes (electrolytes) among different body compartments

Yet, the volume of the fluid in different body compartments remains remarkably stable


Body fluid compartments and fluid balance

Body fluid compartment

ECF also includes lymph, CSF, synovial fluid, aqueous & vitreous humor, endolymph & perilymph and fuild present in pleural, pericardial and peritoneal cavities
