why is it important for the intravenous fluids to have the same solute concentration as your blood?

If the intravenous fluids did not have the same solute concentration, then the red blood cells would shrink, if the intravenous fluids were hypertonic or they would expand and possibly burst if the intravenous fluids were hypotonic.

Is this correct? What should I add?
