Here's a breakdown of those imbalances: Fluid imbalances • Hypovolemia and dehydration â Large amounts of fluid can be lost during prolonged, uncorrected vomiting and diarrhea. Hypovolemia can also result if gastric and intestinal suctioning occurs without proper monitoring of intake and output to make sure lost fluid and electrolytes are adequately replaced.

The only fluid that replaces lost blood cells is blood itself, a colloid. But researchers are looking for artificial blood substitutes that can carry oxygen to tissues.
