For instance, they tend to have lower levels of plasma proteins and decreased plasma osmotic pressure, which causes some loss of blood into the interstitial space (Huether and McCance 876). Arrhythmias, sometimes termed as dysrhythmias, frequently occur as a result of significant blood loss from surgery, electrolyte imbalance and failure of the natural body system to regulate the quantity of acids and bases...
