This is the second article in a series of eight, outlining potentially reversible causes of cardiac arrest.

What is Hypovolaemia?

The human body contains a significant volume of fluid. The typical 70 kilogram male has 42 litres of fluid, comprising 60 per cent of his body weight. The typical adult female body has slightly less - around 55 per cent - because females have a higher proportion of body fat (Brandis 2019).

Two-thirds of total body fluid is intracellular. The remainder is mostly extracellular (blood, plasma, interstitial fluid), with a small amount of transcellular fluid (cerebrospinal, synovial, peritoneal, and pleural) (Tobias & Mohiuddin 2020; Brandis 2019).
