blood electrolytes

Simple inorganic compounds in solution in the blood that form charged particles called IONS. The concentration of ions is critical for normal body function and the movement of ions is fundamental to much of the basic functioning of all the cells of the body. Measurement of blood electrolytes is therefore an important investigation in many conditions.
