Alterations in Fluid Balance and Filtration and Resulting Edema Formation

Fluid movement and filtration involves the understanding of several “pressures” or “forces” within the body. This module facilitates an interactive learning experience to visualize how these forces work, and how alterations in these forces can lead to changes in fluid volume status in the various body compartments, and potentially resulting edema formation.
