Description

Just as fluid imbalances can affect the patient’s electrolyte balance, electrolyte imbalances can in turn result in fluid imbalances, as well as a host of various problems. Imbalances involving sodium, potassium, calcium, phosphorus, and magnesium can all result in potentially life-threatening problems for animals. It is imperative for technicians to understand the role of electrolytes in the body and recognize the signs of imbalances in these electrolytes in order to aid in quick recognition, diagnosis, and treatment of these problems.

Identify
Identify the major electrolyte imbalances encountered in ECC medicine
Signs

Risk factors
