How to include a ACID-BASE MANAGEMENT PRACTICE in your Pathology Prevention plans.
Fluid, electrolyte, and acid-base management is complex and requires an understanding of the functions and homeostatic mechanisms the body uses to maintain an optimal environment for cell function. Alterations in fluid, electrolyte, and acid-base balance are commonly seen in illnesses and can affect homeostasis both acutely and chronically. If untreated these imbalances have consequences with varying degrees of severity including death. The Health Guardian’s understanding of the function and regulation of these acid-base balances contributes to preventing and treating these imbalances in patients across any disease state.
