My question pertains to what happens to red blood cells in various solutions and why. I have found everything except what happens to a red blood cell placed in physiological saline and why. Anyone know?
Finally found it. In case anyone is wondering, the RBCs would remian stable because it is an isotonic solution meaning that it is the same on both sides of the membrane; there is no gain or loss of water and cells would neither shrink nor swell.
