Both hypokalemia and hyperkalemia can cause muscle weakness. T/F T Insulin and glucose can be given to correct hyperkalemia. T/F T Proteins are primarily an intracellular buffer. T/F T (along with phosphate) The two main intracellular fluid compartments are the interstitial fluid contained in the nucleus and the intravascular fluid contained in the cell body. T/F F. They are the two main extracellular compartments. Infants have the highest overall percentage of body water. T/F T Movement of water from the intracellular fluid (ICF) to the extracellular fluid (ECF) is primarily accomplished by active transport. T/F False. It is primarily a function of osmotic forces. Both loss of sodium and gain of water can cause hyponatremia. T/F T

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
