Unformatted text preview: 2 O I&O Mechanisms that control Na + regulate [Na + ] & osmolality. I & O regulate ECF volume. Clinical Relevance: Clinical Relevance: Patient w/ hypo or hypernatremia. Patient w/ or ECF volume How might water control mechanisms How might sodium control be impaired? mechanisms be impaired?
