Dehydration is a condition that may be experienced by people every day but there are some who experience this in an extreme manner. Those who develop severe dehydration would need to be brought to the hospital to be rehydrated so that further complications will not occur.
There are different signs that you have to watch out for if you believe that you are dehydrated. You may notice that your skin is dry. You may also realize that your breathing is starting to become faster as well as your heartbeat. Some have also reported that they are sleepy. Those who are severely dehydrated may sometimes faint.
Clients who are overhydrated or have fluid volume excess would experience dilutional values of sodium (135-145 meq/l) and red blood cells (44% to 52%). the levels would be lower than normal, not higher.
