Third spacing-risk factors/causes of hypovolemia: vomiting, ng suction, diarrhea, diaphoresis, diuretic therapy, diabetes insipidus, renal disease, adrenal insufficiency, osmotic diuresis, third spacing (peritonitis, intestinal obstruction, ascites, burns), hemorrhage, altered intake (npo) (p. 364). risk factors/causes of hypervolemia include: chronic stimulus to the kidney to conserve sodium and water (hf, cirrhosis, glucocorticosteroids), interstitial to plasma fluid shifts (hypertonic fluids, burns), age-related changes in cv and renal function, abnormal renal function with reduced excretion of sodium and water (renal failure), excessive sodium intake (p. 367).
