    It's generic language for any body process that will affect fluid retention. We have to supply the process involved to explain the symptoms.

    One compromised regulatory mechanism I have written into my NANDA diagnosis book for this diagnosis is "arterial hydrostatic pressure exerting greater control than venous oncotic pressure over water movement into interstitial tissues" [AEB peripheral edema].

    Another is renal dysfunction.
