    IV Solution Chart: Hypotonic, Isotonic, and Hypertonic Solutions. The tonicity of the solution impacts the cells. Hypotonic solution causes excess H2O to enter the cell, potentially causing the cell to lyse. Hypertonic solution causes H20 to leave the cell, leading to flaccidity. Isotonic promotes fluid balance between the intracellular and extracellular area.
