The influence of sodium concentration and osmolality on net water and monovalent electrolyte absorption from or secretion into the intact human colon was studied in healthy volunteers. WHEN ISOTONIC SOLUTIONS CONTAINING NACL AND/OR MANNITOL WERE INFUSED INTO THE COLON: (a) a direct linear relationship between luminal sodium concentration (in the range of 23-150 mEq/liter) and rate of net water, sodium, and chloride absorption was found. No water absorption was found when sodium concentration in… CONTINUE READING
