Major headings to include:
Title
Physiologic Fluid Compartments
Fluid Movement
Composition of Fluids
Conclusion
References
Sub headings may be used to organize the paper and include required information.
At least 3 pages of text (not including title and reference pages)
Fluid Compartments in the Body
Percentage of Body Fluids contained in each compartment
Active and Passive Transport
Diffusion and Osmosis
Filtration
Hydrostatic and oncotic/osmotic pressure
Describe the Composition of Hypertonic, Isotonic, and Hypotonic fluids (including the use of crystalloids and colloids)
Discuss the effects of fluid administration in the body
Classify all major IV Fluids and blood products by tonicity. Include each of the following fluids:
•    0.9% saline
•    0.45% saline
•    0.225% saline
•    3% saline
•    D5W
•    D5/0.9% saline
•    D5/0.45% saline
•    D5/0.225% saline
•    Lactated Ringers (LR)
•    D5/LR
•    Whole Blood
•    Packed Red Blood Cells (PRBC)

Discuss effects of fluid admin on the body systems.
Give specific examples of diagnoses and patient conditions that would warrant the use of each fluid tonicity inlcuding:
Isotonic
Hypotonic
Hypertonic
List specific conditions warranting use of each fluid listed. Written as a formal paper with no first person or casual language. Diagnoses and fluids named specifically and properly. Paper flows logically as a formal composition. Vocabulary is appropriate for level.

Concept/Pharmacology Projects
Beginning Fall 2013

Directions:
1.    For this topic, write a synopsis of the requested information (3-5 pg).  It would be impossible to go into too much depth.  The goal is for you to have an in-depth understanding of:  a. selected physiological processes in the body, b) the process for which identified drugs are prescribed, and c) the mechanism by which each drug works.  This will allow you to critically think about what you are doing when you administer IV & drug therapy.
2.    The following components of your synopsis will be assessed:
a.    Critical components  (questions answered)…………….45%
b.    Depth of understanding…………………………………20%
c.    Appropriate medical terminology………………………20%
d.    Spelling & grammar…………………………………….10%
e.    APA format for reference page…………………………..5%
3.    The project grade will be averaged with in-class quiz grades in your course syllabus.
4.    The due date indicated at the start of each question is the LAST day the paper may be turned in.  Feel free to turn it in early, if that is your preference.  Papers need to be uploaded to the coursework area of the class LMS.

Fluid Balance Project
Describe the three fluid compartments in the body, along with the percentage of body fluids contained within each compartment.  Discuss the mechanisms of active and passive transport, diffusion, osmosis, filtration, hydrostatic and oncotic/osmotic pressure, and apply these concepts to human body function (with examples).  Describe the composition of isotonic, hypertonic, and hypotonic fluids, (including the use of crystalloids and colloids) and discuss the effects of their administration on body systems.   Give examples of diagnoses/patient conditions that would warrant the use of each fluid tonicity.  Classify all the major IV fluids and blood products (see below) by their tonicity.
•    0.9% saline
•    0.45% saline
•    0.225% saline
•    3% saline
•    D5W
•    D5/0.9% saline
•    D5/0.45% saline
•    D5/0.225% saline
•    Lactated Ringers (LR)
•    D5/LR
•    Whole Blood
•    Packed Red Blood Cells (PRBC)
