Body fluid & composition

  1. 1. Body fluid & composition Dr. Amruta N. Kumbhar Assistant Professor Dept. Of Physiology
  2. 2. Specific learning objectives • Distribution of total body water in the body • Ionic composition of body fluids • Define: moles; equivalents; osmoles • Concepts of pH; H+ concentration, Buffer system
  3. 3. Introduction • The normal body in an average adult male is composed of water (60%) • minerals (7%) • protein and related substances (18%) • fat (15%) • The water, denoted by the term total body water (TBW), the electrolytes need special emphasis • TBW 10% lower in young females • In infants TBW is 65-75 % of body weight
  4. 4. Distribution of total body water (TBW) Compartment Volume (L) Percent Body weight Body water Total body water (TBW) 42 60 100 a) Extra Cellular Fluid (ECF) 14 20 33 b) Intra cellular fluid (ICF) 28 40 67
  5. 5. Distribution of extra cellular fluid (ECF) in a normal adult 70 kg person compartment Volume (L) Percent () Body weight Body water Plasma (25% of ECF) 3.5 4-5 8 Interstitial plus transcellular fluid (75% of ECF) 10.5 15 25
  6. 6. ECF 1. Plasma : 100- Hematocrit (PCV) Plasma volume (L) = blood volume(L)x 100 • comprises about 5% of the body weight (i.e. 25% of the ECF). • On an average out of 5 L of total blood volume 3.5 L is plasma.
  7. 7. 2. Interstitial fluid • part of the ECF i.e outside the vascular system • It constitutes the major portion (about 3/4) of the ECF. • The composition of interstitial fluid is the same as that of plasma except it has little protein. • Thus, interstitial fluid is an ultrafiltrate of plasma • Lymph constitute 2-3% of body wt.
  8. 8. 3.Transcellular fluid • It is the fluid contained in the secretions of the secretory cells and cavities of the body • e.g. saliva, sweat, cerebrospinal fluid, intraocular fluids (aqueous humour and vitreous humour), pericardial fluid, bile, fluid present between the layers (pleura, peritoneum and synovial membrane), lacrimal fluid and luminal fluids of the gut, thyroid and cochlea. • Transcellular fluid volume is relatively small, • about 1.5% of the body weight, i.e. 15 mL/kg body weight • about 1 L in a person of 70 kg
  9. 9. 4. Mesenchymal tissue fluid • The mesenchymal tissues such as dense connective tissue, cartilage and bones contain about 6% of the body water. • The interstitial fluid, transcellular fluid and mesenchymal tissue fluid combinedly form the 75% of ECF. • The normal distribution of total body water in the fluid compartments is kept constant by two opposing sets of forces: osmotic and hydrostatic pressure.
  10. 10. Distribution of total body water in a normal 70 kg person Compartment Volume (L) Body weight (%) Body water (%) Total body water (TBW) 42 60 100 Intracellular fluid (ICF) 28 40 67 Extracellular fluid 14 20 33
  11. 11. Intracellular fluid compartment • The intracellular fluid (ICF) compartment comprises about 40% of the body weight • It is the fluid contained within the body cells • the bulk of which is contained in the muscles
  12. 12. MEASUREMENT OF BODY FLUID VOLUMES • The volume of water in each fluid compartment can be measured by the indicator dilution principle • It is based on relationship between – A1 – A2 V = where, C V = Volume of fluid distributed in compartment A1 = Amount of indicator injected in the fluid, A2 = Amount of indicator removed by excretion and metabolism, and C = Concentration of the indicator in the fluid.
  13. 13. Q. If 150 mg of sucrose (A1) is injected into a 70 kg man, 10 mg sucrose (A2) has been excreted or metabolized and the concentration of plasma sucrose (C) measured is 0.01 mg/mL; then the volume distribution of sucrose is ?
  14. 14. Characteristics of the Indicator (marker) used • It should be non-toxic. • It must mix evenly throughout the compartment being measured. • It should be relatively easy to measure its concentration. • It must have no effect of its own on the distribution of water or other substances in the body. • Either it must be unchanged by the body during the mixing period or the amount changed (excreted and/or metabolized) must be known.
  15. 15. 1. Measurement of total body water volume • The volume of TBW can be measured by injecting a marker which will be evenly distributed in all the compartments of body fluid. Such markers include: • Deuterium oxide (D2O), • Tritium oxide, and • Aminopyrine
  16. 16. 2. Measurement of extracellular fluid volume 1. Radioactive substances like sodium, chloride (36Cl− and 38Cl−), bromide (82Br−), sulphate and thiosulphate; and 2. Non-metabolizable saccharides like inulin, mannitol and sucrose • Most accurate method of measuring the volume of ECF is by using inulin (polysaccharide, MW 5200) • The values of ECF volume are calculated from the values of concentration of inulin in the plasma since it makes an important component of the ECF.
  17. 17. 3. Measurement of plasma volume • The plasma volume can be measured by injecting those markers which bind strongly with the plasma protein • either do not diffuse or diffuse only in small quantities into the interstitium. These substances are 1. Radioactive iodine – 131I, and 2. The dye Evan’s blue – T-1824. 3. radioactive isotopes of chromium (51Cr) 4. Radio iodinated human serum albumin (RISA) 5. Radio iodinated gamma globulin & fibrinogen- do not leak out of blood stream 100 - PCV 6. plasma volume= blood volume x 100
  18. 18. 4. Measurement of intracellular fluid volume • values of ICF volume are calculated from the values of TBW and ECF as • ICF volume = TBW volume − ECF volume.
  19. 19. 5. Measurement of interstitial fluid volume • Its values can be roughly calculated from the values of ECF volume and plasma volume as • Interstitial fluid volume = ECF volume − plasma volume • The ECF volume/intracellular fluid volume ratio is larger in infants and children as compared to adults, • but absolute volume of ECF in children is smaller than in adults • Applied aspect-
  20. 20. Ionic composition of body fluids • Ions constitutes approx. 95% of the solutes in the body fluids Ionic distribution in the various body fluids (mEq/L of H2O) ions plasma Interstitial fluid ICF Cations Na 153 145 12 K 5.4 5 155 Mg2+ 1.9 2 15 Others 2.7 2 2 Total cations 163 154 184
  21. 21. Ionic composition of body fluids anions ions plasma Interstitial fluid ICF Cl- 111 110 8 HCO3- 26.2 27 8 Phosphate 1 2 90 Proteins 17.2 15 60 Others 7.6 - 18 Total anions 163 154 184 Total ions 326 308 368
  22. 22. • Na+, ca2+ Cl-,& HCO- 3 are largely extracellular • whereas K+, Mg2+, organic phosphates & proteins are predominantly present in ICF • Essentially all of the body K+ is in the exchangeable pool whereas • Only 65- 70% of body Na+ is exchangeable • Only the exchangeable solutes are osmotically active • Almost all of the body Ca2+ & most of the body Mg2+ are non exchangeable
  23. 23. Units for measuring concentration of solutes 1. Moles : • molecular weight of the substance in grams • Each mole consist of appx. 6 x 1023 molecules • 1 mmol is 1/1000 of a mole 2. equivalents: • It is the standard unit for expressing the solutes in the body which are in the form of charged particles. • One equivalent(Eq) is 1 mole of an ionized substance divided by its valency • mEq is 1/1000 of 1 eq • Normality of solution is the number of gram equivalents in 1 litr. • 1N solution of HCL contains 1 + 35.5 gm/l = 36.5gm/L
  24. 24. 3. Osmoles: The amount of conc. Of osmotically active particles are usually expressed in osmoles(osm) gram molecular weight(i.e one mole) 1 osmole = no. of freely movable particles, each molecule liberates in solution
  25. 25. Concept of pH & H+ concentration • pH stands for power of hydrogen • Refers to negative logarithm of the H+ i. pH= log10 1/[H+] ii. pH= - log10[H+] • For decrease in each pH unit (from 7 to 6, [H+] is increased 10 fold vice versa • pH & [H+] are inversely related • Advantage of pH concept : when pK of buffer system is known, it is immediately possible to determine effective pH range of the buffer • K= ionisation or dissociation constant • pK= negative log of K (-log K) & is equal to the pH at which half of the acid molecules are dissociated & half undissociated
  26. 26. • Blood pH always refers to plasma pH(7.4) • Range of [H+] compatible with life is 20-126 mEq/L i.e pH 7.7 to 6.9 • Optimum pH range at which human body functions properly is 7.45 • Clinically blood pH <7.35 is referred as acidosis • Blood pH > 7.45 as alkalosis
  27. 27. Concept of buffer system • A buffer is a substance that has ability to bind or release H+ in solution • Buffer is solution consist of a weak acid & its conjugate base, keeping pH of solution constant • It is a primary means by which large changes in [H+] are minimized within a fraction of seconds
  28. 28. Dynamics of buffering • Handerson- Hasselbalch Equation • HA H+ + A- • A- represent any anion & HA the undissociated acid
