Attention graduating nursing students…the NCLEXⓇ is coming! Picmonic nursing scholar, Josh Lawler, BSN, RN, is ready to help you prep with one last comprehensive review of electrolytes for the NCLEX.
And…Here it is! A Review of Electrolytes for the NCLEX [WATCH NOW]
Electrolytes are minerals with an electric charge that can be found in your blood, urine, body tissues, other bodily fluids,1 and even outside the human body (maybe more so, but I’m not a molecular chemist, so please humor me). Electrolytes serve many functions in the body including:
- Fluid and pH (acid/base) balances
- Movement of nutrients into your cells
- Metabolic waste out of your cells
- Physiologic functions such as cardiac or nerve conduction
In his webinar, Josh covers:
- Sodium (Na+)
- Calcium (Ca2+)
- Potassium (K+)
- Chloride (Cl-)
- Magnesium (Mg2+)
- Phosphate (PO43-)
