Water, Electrolyte & Acid-Base Balance

Water, Electrolyte & Acid-Base Homeostasis Fast Facts:

  • Acid–base homeostasis is the homeostatic regulation of the pH of the body's extracellular fluid (ECF).
  • The proper balance between the acids and bases (i.e. the pH) in the ECF is crucial for the normal physiology of the body, and cellular metabolism.
  • The pH of the extracellular fluid, including the blood plasma, is normally tightly regulated between 7.32 and 7.42, by the chemical buffers, the respiratory system, and the renal system.
