Question details

(2 points) You are a volunteer working in the emergency department of a local hospital. One of the physicians describes an infant who is currently in the emergency department with severe diabetes mellitus who is suffering from dehydration. The physician is talking to you about dehydration and says in simple terms it means the diabetic infant has lost water from the body; they are losing more water in the urine than normal, which is causing the dehydration. If the diabetic infant has not been able to replace all the water they have lost in the urine, describe the osmolarity of the extracellular fluid (ECF or fluid outside cells) in this infant compared to normal. 37. Explain the reasoning for your description of the osmolarity of the ECF in the infant compared to normal. (2 points) If the diabetic child has not been able to replace all the water they have lost in the urine, describe the osmolarity of the intracellular fluid (ICF or fluid inside cells) in this infant compared to normal. 38. Explain the reasoning for your description of the osmolarity of the ICF in the infant compared to normal.
