The coconut extract exhibited high membrane stabilization effect against hypotonicity
induced haemolysis of the red cells as is shown by the percent inhibition of haemolysis.
It is arguable that this was a direct consequence of the decrease in diluent hypotonicity
produced by the ions added when NaOH was used to adjust the 10 g/L AA diluent to pH 6.
Symptoms result from hypotonicity
of body fluids and electrolyte disturbances.
Table-8: Effect of compounds (1-5) on hypotonicity
12] because the patient had hypotonicity
and found it to be low.
The rationale for this treatment stems from the concept of nocturnal relative hypotonicity
of the tear film.
Hartmann's solution is the commercial fluid closest to this ideal, but suffers several design drawbacks, such as hypotonicity
, presence of divalent cations and the need for efficient lactate metabolism, as discussed elsewhere (26).
The reason for the loss was assumed to be the hypotonicity
of the CSF (specific gravity, 1.
