The electrolyte is the generic term for minerals found in our body fluids such as blood, urine and sweat. Electrolytes carry an electric charge- either positive or negative.
Electrolytes generally found in our body are:
These electrically charged ions have a crucial role in various bodily functions, such as:
The electrolyte level in our body can become too low or too high, that leads to electrolyte imbalance, due to too little or too much consumption and excretion of electrolytes.
Conditions associated with electrolyte imbalance are:
Low electrolyte levels are normally indicated with the prefix “Hypo” and high levels with “Hyper”. An electrolyte analyser is required for the diagnosis and treatment of conditions associated with electrolyte imbalance.
This fully automated system measures the level of electrolytes, such as Sodium, potassium, chloride, etc., present in body fluids such as plasma, serum, blood, and urine. Most electrolyte analysers also measure the level of calcium, an essential electrolyte in the body, where it measures the concentration of total calcium, ionised calcium or both.
Sodium: Diagnosis and treatment of
Potassium: Diagnosis and treatment of medical conditions in which blood pressure is either low or high.
Chloride: Diagnosis and treatment of diabetic acidosis( a fatal diabetic complication) and cystic fibrosis( a genetic disease that affects the digestive system and lungs)
Calcium: Diagnosis and treatment of-
Sodium- 40 to 200 millimoles per litre (mmol/L) for blood and 3 to 300mmol/L for urine
Potassium- 1.7 to 75 mmol/L for blood and 5 to 120 mmol/L for urine
Chloride: 50 to 200mmol/L for blood and 15 to 300 mmol/L for urine
Calcium 0.3 to 5.0 mmol/L for blood
