Abstract

Suppose your patient has edema-indicating that there's enough fluid in his body-but his vital signs and urine output suggest that he's hypovolemic. What's going on? He's experiencing third-spacing, a shifting of fluid into interstitial spaces. Find out what needs to be done to get that fluid back where it belongs.
