Abstract

Hypoperfusion of tissue results in cell membrane dysfunction. Normally, the cell membrane serves to preserve the milieu interior through the maintenance of a negative charge or membrane potential. Maintenance of a negative membrane potential across the cell membrane serves as a semipermeable barrier, preserving the balance of intra- and extracellular electrolytes and water.
