Osmotic pressure is the pressure which needs to be applied to a solution to prevent the inward flow of water across a semipermeable membrane.

Because this pressure exists in your blood, it is very important that IV drips in hospitals are precisely calculated so that the solution does not burst your blood vessels!

You want the isotonic one

If the solution introduced into your blood does not have the correct concentrations, enough will enter your blood cells to burst them.
