Abstract. This compact monograph reviews in simple, lucid terms the basic physiology and methods of calculation necessary for the understanding of body fluids, including sections on composition, adjustment of pH, and respiratory and renal regulation. The second part of the work is concerned with the clinical significance of the various abnormalities of pattern most commonly encountered.

[L H Newburgh; Alexander Leaf].   In principle, a body fluid matrix consists of molecules and substances that surround the analyte of interest. In many cases, the analyte of interest comes from blood filtered through circulation, which should reflect the composition of serum or plasma.

Part of the Advances in Experimental Medicine and Biology book series (AEMB, volume ) On the Clinical Significance of Serotonin and 5-HIAA in Body Fluids. In: Haber B., Gabay S., Issidorides M.R., Alivisatos S.G.A. (eds) Serotonin. using less common body fluids helps the individual patient and our understanding of the disease processes. New techniques may improve the usefulness of these fluids. Body fluids are one of the unique specimens received in the lab that require multidisciplinary testing. A limited volume of fluid must often be shared with hematology, chemistry, immunology and histo/cytopathology.   Cerebrospinal fluid analysis - CSF is the fluid surrounding the brain and spinal cord. Analysis of fluids from body cavities, such as: Peritoneal fluid - present within the 2 layers of peritoneal membrane that cover the abdominal wall and most of the abdominal organs. Pericardial fluid - surrounding the heart.

  Medicine & Health Sciences Urinalysis and Body Fluids 6th Edition by Susan King Strasinger DA MT(ASCP) (Author), Marjorie Schaub Di Lorenzo Organizes reagent strip information with headers that clearly delineate the clinical significance, reactions, and s: The body fluid compartment that contains more osmotically active particles (in relation to other fluid compartments in the same individual) is: A. intracellular fluid B. plasma C. interstitial fluid Normal red blood cells from a healthy individual were placed in each of the following solutions and observations made after 1 hour. Among the major applications of body fluid analysis is the differentiation of transudates from exudates for fluids originating from pleural effusions. 1 Given the commonality of pleural effusions presented in the lab, clinical distinction between transudate and exudate pleural effusions aids in the diagnosis of the origin of the pleural effusions, which in turn affects the differential diagnosis and treatment. Body fluids are considered to be the interstitial fluids, saliva, tears, and gastric juices. They moisten the tissues, muscles, body organs and skin. In Chinese medicine, the production of these fluids is influenced by proper gastrointestinal function by the spleen and stomach qi.
