Plasma Colloid Osmotic Pressure - Biology - Professor Fink - Lecture 1 of 79 - Video-lecture

Video-lecture, Biology

Description: Professor Fink explains the Plasma Colloid Osmotic Pressure. In this lecture, Professor Fink shows how the total solute concentration of a fluid (in milliosmoles per L) can be used to calculate its osmotic pressure of a fluid. Since Blood Plasma contains non-diffusible proteins, it is slightly hypertonic compared to other body fluids, giving it an osmotic pressure of about 25 mm Hg higher than other fluids.
