Im pre nursing school, taking my prereq's, and I am currently on a chapter about diffusion & osmosis in cells, and my teacher has us writing an essay on how this will be used in a real life situation in our medical carrer.. I'm stuck.. this is what I have so far:
A situation in which diffusion and osmosis will be used frequently in a medical field would be in dialysis. The definition for the procedure is the separation of substances in a solution by diffusion through semipermiable membranes. Dialysis is used in cleaning wastes and toxins from the blood. This is often used when kidneys are no longer able to function.
I haven't been in the field yet, so I dont know of any examples... If anyone has any ideas PLEASE let me know!!!!
Thank you so much!
