  4. Discuss the results of a meta-analysis conducted to compare the effectiveness of subcutaneous versus intravenous (IV) fluid administration to reverse mild to moderate dehydration in hospitalized older adults.
  5. Describe the two enzyme replacement therapy agents used to treat the most common types of lysosomal storage disease - Gaucher disease and Fabry disease.
