Question description

If carrot sticks are put into water and refrigerated, they become turgid or stiff. If red blood cells are given the same treatment, they burst or lyse. Account for the different in the results. (I think it has something to do with osmosis) 

A patient is brought into the emergency room. She is unconscious and is dehydrated. Will she be given an intravenous solution (IV) that is hypertonic, hypotonic, or isotonic to her red blood cells? explain your answer. Remember that pure distilled water would be hypotonic to the patient's blood cells.
