The water content of the human body averages 60 per cent of its total weight. Techniques for measurement and criteria for accuracy have been developed for total body water but there are no generally accepted standards for extracellular fluid volume (EFV). It is our purpose in this paper to describe our exploration of the erratic variations of extracellular fluid volume in normal subjects as measured by sucrose infusions and to discuss wide fluctuations in what had been thought hitherto to be a… CONTINUE READING
