  RN S 5 Reg Body Fluid
Insensible fluid or water loss occurs when continuous water is lost by evaporation caused by changes in the environmental atmosphere or by decompensating conditions of the body such as fever, burns, trauma, or extreme stress.
In dehydration, the concentration of creatinine is greater in the blood because of the decrease in fluid circulating.
In dehydration, fluid is decreased and the concentration of RBCs in the blood is greater thereby elevating the hematocrit.

 pH, Body Fluid
Specify body fluid source on the test request form.
The arterial-ascitic fluid pH gradient >0.10 with >500 PMNs is described as virtually diagnostic of bacterial peritonitis.
Low pleural fluid pH with negative cytologic examination may indicate lack of recognizable malignant cells in a sample of malignant effusion but may point to tuberculosis or rheumatoid effusion.

 Body Fluid Changes in Space
Major redistribution of body fluids occurs with exposure to weightlessness and all astronauts and cosmonauts have noted a tendency for puffy face and fullness in the upper torso shortly after arriving in space.
Fluid in the lower torso and legs due to the normal hyrdostatic effects of Earth's gravity becomes mobilized into the blood vessels and finds temporary accomodation in our relatively vast pulmonary "reservoir" until the kidneys rid the body of this now unnecessary fluid.
During zero gravity the end result of all this is a more optimum adjustment of the body fluids to the new demands, and function is preserved.

 Fluid Balance
Approximately 2/3 of body fluid is intracellular and 1/3 is extracellular.
There are some special fluid and compartments including: lymph; cerebrospinal fluid; synovial; aqueous humour/vitreous body of the eyes; endolymph/perilymph in the ears; pleural, pericardial and peritoneal fluid between serous membranes; and glomerular filtrate in the kidneys.
A drop in body fluid results in an increase in blood tonicity and a decrease in blood volume which in turn causes the release of renin in the kidneys and stimulation of osmoreceptors in the hypothalamus.

 Mind&Body: Fluid retention   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
One of water’s most important roles is to act as a medium for electrolytes – often salts of sodium and potassium – which the body keeps in a carefully balanced state of equilibrium.
It is also used by the body to eliminate waste, especially in sweat and urine.
Your body uses water to dissolve salts that were originally part of your diet.

 Body Fluid Monitoring Guide
He set out to devise a system for displaying fluid loss during workouts and races, to serve as a guideline and reminder of predicable fluid loss during exercise and non-exercise levels.
The body fluid monitoring feature is the definitive hydration tool." Drink before you become thirsty - strength and endurance and reduced by 10 to 15% after and 2% loss of body weight, through dehydration - the thirst mechanism is not precise, and up to 12 to 24 hours to rehydrate, in human bodies.
It is well documented that researchers agree fluid replacement should at least cover losses on the scale, and that there is evidence that fluid replacement in excess of this amount may be warranted.

Body fluid is a general term used in Oriental Medicine which refers to body fluids such as tears, sweat, urine, gastric and intestinal fluids, as well as saliva, various mucous discharges, and sinovial fluids.
Clear and thin fluids are referred to as Jin and circulate in the exterior aspect of the body while thick and heavy fluids are referred to as Ye and circulate in the deeper aspects of the body.
Sweat would be an example of Jin while sinovial fluid is an example of Ye.

 CPSC641 Computer Graphics Final Project
But the interaction between fluid and soft body is a relatively new research area, especially for computer graphics community.
A semi-Lagrangian “stable fluids” treatment of the convection portion of the Navier-Stokes equations was introduced to the computer graphics community by [Stam 1999] in order to allow the use of significantly larger time steps without losing stability.
The second reason is that mass-spring makes us easy to handle the interaction between fluid and soft body, at least in one direction(fluid -> soft body), but other finite numerical method have their own computational grid space, it’s not very easy and intuitive to cope with fluid solver.

 Traditional Chinese Medicine theory: qi theory
Qi, Blood and Body Fluids are the most basic substances that constitute the human body and maintain its functional activities.
Blood is the red liquid circulating in the vessels and nourishing the whole body, and Body Fluids are a general term for all the water necessary for life.
Qi is attributed to Yang, because it is mobile and functions to move and warm; while the Blood and Body Fluids are attributed to Yin because they are motionless and function to nourish and moisten the human body.

 Human Body Fluids Precautions
Infectious body fluids shall include blood, semen, vaginal secretions, cerebrospinal fluid, synovial fluid, pleural fluid, pericardial fluid, peritoneal fluid, amniotic fluid, saliva in dental procedures, any body fluid that is visibly contaminated with blood, and all body fluids in situations where it is difficult or impossible to differentiate between body fluids.
Actual implementation of the policy and adherence to the policy is the responsibility of each department or unit where human blood, body fluids, or other infectious materials may pose a risk to the safety of students, faculty, or staff.
Inadequate attention to human body fluid precautions may lead to appropriate sanctions or disciplinary actions within approved health and safety practices of the University.

 Blood and Body Fluid Precautions -- Topic Overview
Blood and body fluid precautions (universal precautions) are recommendations designed to prevent the transmission of HIV, hepatitis B virus (HBV), hepatitis C virus (HCV), and other diseases while administering first aid or other health care.
These precautions treat all blood and body fluids as potentially infectious for diseases that are transmitted in the blood (blood-borne pathogens).
They also apply to tissues and other body fluids, such as from around the brain or spinal cord (cerebrospinal fluid), around a joint space (synovial fluid), in the lungs (pleural fluid), in the lining of the abdomen and pelvis (peritoneal fluid), around the heart (pericardial fluid), and amniotic fluid that surrounds a fetus.

In terms of blood and body fluids, when blood is visible, semen and vaginal secretions should also be considered potentially infectious vehicles.
When dealing with blood and body fluid exposures, document whether the exposure represents a departure from universal precautions, Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) standards, or a true accident (eg, projectile vomiting, precipitous labor with spontaneous rupture of membranes).
Copious amounts of irrigation fluid are appropriate in cases of mucosal exposure (ocular and oral), as well as soap and water washing in cases of needle-stick injury.

 Medical Laboratory Observer: Quantitating low body fluid protein
A Measurement of total protein in body fluids other than blood, urine, or cerebrospinal fluid is usually done to differentiate an inflammatory fluid collection, an exudate, from one that is not inflammatory, a transudate.
In synovial fluid from a joint, the normal protein concentration is 1 g/L to 3 g/dL.
Likewise, in pleural, peritoneal, and pleural fluids, 3 g/dL is usually taken as the cut-off value for differentiating transudates from exudates.
