Comments "It is sometimes helpful to express the electrolyte concentrations in units of milliequivalents per liter (Eq/L or mEq/L). One converts from molar concentrations to Eq/L by multiplying the molar ion concentration by the absolute value of the ion’s valence, such that the concentration in mEq/L denotes the total charge contributed by the ion in question. The ionic compositions (in mEq/L) of the major body fluid compartments are shown in Fig. 3."
