Patient discussion about solute

Q. WHAT ARE THE CAUSES N SOLUTION TO PNEMONIA? I HAVE A FRIEND WITH THIS DISEASES WHAT SUGGESTION CAN I GET FROM U AND TELL TO MY FRIEND I WILL BE WAITNG FOR YOUR SUGGESTION.

A. Pneumonia is an infectious disease of the lungs, and is caused by various bacteria, viruses or fungal infections. The most common pneumonia is caused by viruses, and the treatment is usually symptomatic
(anti caugh and fever, etc.), however, because there are many bacterias that can cause it as well, you should recommend to your friend to go see a doctor and get some antibiotic medications.

Q. Can you suggest an immediate solution for this, please? My niece is 22 years old. She was very excited about being a single mother. She was staying with her boyfriend when she announced that she was pregnant. About 5 weeks of pregnancy she had a fight with her boyfriend that ended up in him shoving her. She fell violently to the ground. She is complaining of spotting and cramps. I am worried if anything has gone wrong. Can you suggest an immediate solution for this, please?

A. I want to add, that the physical act of violence done to her and the unborn child might have been criminal assault. If she or the unborn child were harmed, she could file charges. There is no excuse for the boyfriend's irresponsible behavior. If she is in any danger from this guy doing this again, she could seek help at a shelter for battered women, or even better staying with someone in her family.

The parameter b is also an empirical property of a porous medium that determines the characteristic dispersion of the medium by relating the components of pore velocity to the dispersion coefficient, and m (of Eqn 5) is a parameter that describes the position of the inflexion point of the curve where the maximum rate of breakthrough or solute concentration increases.
The tonicity of a fluid is determined by comparison with ECF--an isotonic fluid has similar concentration of solutes to ECF and cells placed in this fluid will not change volume.
Severe hyponatremia may occur in patients who have a low solute intake (tea-and-toast and crash diets) and ingest excess water in the absence of beer drinking.
11] In this previous study by Spector and colleagues, the authors showed that dehydration in rats led to a significant upregulation of AQP2 and AQP3 expression, thus providing presumptive evidence that AQPs are involved in water and solute transport.
A student need only remember that solutes lower the free energy of water, essentially by restricting the ability of the water to move freely, much as a defensive football player restricts a running back from freely moving about the field.
2007), the latter workers speculated that the solutes, particularly the nitrate, in the GW were exported to streams via GW base-flow discharge.

Water moves freely between intra-cellular and extra-cellular compartments in response to osmotic pressure gradients created by effective solutes (Na+, K+, and mannitol) that are impermeable to the cell membrane (1).
Clinically, the removal of solute is measured in terms of clearance.
Before the mid-1980s, the importance of separate phase liquid pollutants was not appreciated, and most investigations into groundwater contamination had focused on solute (dissolved constituent) transport.
Whereas steady-state diffusion between two locations with constant concentrations is a rather trivial matter to analyze with algebra, proper treatment of time dependent diffusion with boundary conditions such as conservation of solute is rather difficult to predict even with a working knowledge of the mathematics of differential equations.
