  1. glomerular filtration rate (GFR) is directly related
    the pressures that determine net filtration pressure
  2. angiotenisin ll and natriuretic peptide
    help regulate GFR

  25. sodium
    the most abundant extracelluar cation , essential in fluid and electrolyte balance
  26. phosphate

  27. chloride
    most prevalent extracellular anion , can help balance the level of anions in differen fluid compartments
  28. bicarbonate
    second most prevalent extracellular anion , mainly regulated by the kidneys , important for acid-base balance
  29. buffers
    substances that act to prevent rapid , drastic changes in the pH of a body fluid
  30. electrolytes

    an abnormal increase in the volume of interstitial fluid
  36. hyperphosphatemia
    can occur during renal failure or destruction of body cells which releases phosphates into the blood
  37. water intoxication
    the swelling of cells due to water moving from plasma into interstitial fluid and then into cell
  38. dehydration
    occurs when water loss is greater than water gain
  39. hypernatremia
    can be caused by excessive sodium in diet or with dehydration
  40. hypovolemia
    condition that can occur as water moves out of plasma into interstitial fluid and blood volume decreases

    can be caused by decreased potassium intake or kidney disease , results in muscle fatigue , increased urine output , changes in electrocardiogram
  42. hypocalcemia
    can occur from hypoparathyroidism
  43. respiratory acidosis
    can be caused by emphysema , pulmonary edema , injury to the respiratory center of the medulla oblongata , airway destruction , or disorders of the muscles involved in breathing
  44. hyponatremia
    can be caused by excessive water intake , excessive vomiting or aldosterone deficiency
  45. metabolic acidosis
    can be caused by actual loss of bicarbonate ions , ketosis or failure of kidneys to excreted H+
  46. metabolic alkalosis
    can be caused by excessive vomiting of gastric contents gastric suctioning use of certain diuretics , severe dehydration or excessive intake of alkaline drugs
  47. respirator alkalosis
    can be caused by oxygen deficiency at high altituden , stroke , or severe anxiety
  48. mucosa
    epithelium: nonkeratinized stratified squamous epithelium in the mouth , pharynx , esophagus , and anal canal , protective
  49. simple columnar epithelium in the
    stomach and intestines , ecocrine cells and endocrine cells
  50. lamina propria
    areolar connective tissue with blood and lymphatic vessels , routes by which absorbed nutrient are transported to other tissures of the body , mucosa-associated lymphatic tissue ( MALT )
  51. muscularis mucosae
