Thankyou!

Wanting to reward those loyal followers who visit fluidphysiology.org, I trawled through my HD and found an Educational project I used in Southampton several years ago to help students get a quantitative grasp of practice. It is unambitiously titled Understanding fluids, urea and electrolyte balance; a quantitative approach and you
