The AAGL's Practice Guidelines for the Management of Hysteroscopic Distending Media lists an intravasation safety limit of 2,500 cc for isotonic solution, compared with a maximum limit of 1,000 cc when using hypotonic solutions
Product manager, Melanie Tymm, told OT: "Research has shown that hypotonic solutions
provide measurably greater improvements in the symptoms of dry eye syndrome than isotonic solutions so changing Hyabak to a hypotonic solution
was a natural progression for the company.
Fluids that should not be used in septic shock are 5% dextrose or hypotonic solutions
We have found that hypotonic solutions
(low in salt) strongly activate inflammation at molecular level.
contain only minimal solute concentrations and greater concentrations of water.
The degrees of swelling and osmotic resistance in hypotonic solutions
of erythrocyte from various domestic animals.
Four pediatric deaths due to acute hyponatremia associated with intravenous (IV) administration of hypotonic solutions
, three in a postsurgical setting and the other in a medical setting were voluntarily reported (two to the Institute for Safe Medication Practices Canada [ISMP Canada] and two to the Institute for Safe Medication Practices [ISMP] in the United States).
Tear-glucose concentrations can be increased by mild abrasion of the conjunctival epithelium and exposure to hypotonic solutions
Pain during the healing phase is the result of exposure of the superior constrictor muscle and associated nerve endings to mechanical stretch, the ingestion of hypotonic solutions
, and abrasion by food.
However, there are complications associated with the absorption of large amounts of hypotonic solutions
including serious heart, lung, and brain disorders, sometimes leading to coma and death.
True (A) or false (B): Fluids that should not be used in septic shock are: 5% dextrose or hypotonic solutions
Hypertonic solutions shrivel cells like raisins; hypotonic solutions
rupture cells like over-inflated balloons.
