Isotonic, because that is close to the concentration in the blood.

Examples of hypertonic and hypotonic fluids would be about water and salt. A hypotonic would have very little salt in the water, and a hypertonic would have a whole lot more. Also, when these are compared to each other, the relationship between them can be said that one is hypo- or hyper- in relation to the other.

the solutions used in iv are the hypotonic , hypertonic, isotonic solutions .. :)

"hypo" is less, "hyper" is more. Hypotonic is less salty & hypertonic is more salty (than the reference, which is usually human fluids [0.9%]).

Infiltration and Extravasation are problems that can result from intravenous fluids. Infiltration is the leaking of the fluid into the tissue surrounding the vein. This happens when the tip of the catheter is no longer inserted in the vein, but is not removed from the patient. Extravasation is the leakage of vesicant fluids into the tissues. Vesicants are known to be more caustic and can cause burns.
