5]LR, which pull fluid from cells into the intravascular space.
As the hemoglobin and hematocrit increase, the blood volume in the intravascular space decreases.
The increase in plasma oncotic pressure produced by colloid helps draw fluid into the intravascular space and thereby expands the plasma volume and remains in the intravascular space for a long time.
These errors occur because of the effusion of albumin from the intravascular space secondary to capillary leakage (18).
The body tries to maintain cardiac output (the amount of blood that is pumped by the heart to the body); and if the amount of fluid in the intravascular space is decreased, the body tries to compensate for this decrease by increasing the heart rate and making blood vessels constrict to try to maintain blood pressure and blood flow to the vital organs of the body.
If the PRR is less than the ultrafiltration rate (UFR), that is, fluid in the intravascular space is not being refilled as quickly as it is being taken-off, the patient could suffer from intravascular volume depletion and associated symptoms (Davenport, 2006; Brummelhuis, van Schelven, & Boer, 2008).
Danish investigators have demonstrated that type 1 diabetic patients have increased transcapillary escape rates of LDL cholesterol from the intravascular space into the arterial wall (Atherosclerosis 2003;170:163-8).
These complexes are of low molecular weight and weakly bind to proteins and thus circulate within the intravascular space for a very short period of time before leaking into the extracellular space.
This results in the potassium ions shifting to the intravascular space to balance the positive charges again.
The dextran component binds the recruited water within the intravascular space, thus sustaining the volume expansion achieved and stabilising haemodynamics.
Increased oncotic pressure and decreased capillary hydrostatic pressure yields a shift in fluid from interstitial space to intravascular space.
The clinical signs during attacks result from extravasation of large volumes of plasma from the intravascular space to the interstitial space.
