kidneys receive 20-25% of the resting cardiac output via the right and left these.
interlobular arteries enter the renal cortex and give off branches called these
each nephron receives one afferent arteriole which divides into a tangled, ball shaped capillary network called this. part of the cardiovascular and urinary system
the glomerlus capillaries then reunite to form this that carries blood out of the glomerlus
the efferent arterioles divide to form these, which surround tubular parts of the nephron in the renal cortex
extend from some efferent arterioles. These long looped shaped capillaries supply tubular portions of the nephron in the renal medulla
blood leaves the kidney through a single one of these that exits at the renal hilum and carries venous blood to the inferior vena cava
the nephron: renal corpuscule
where blood plasma is filtered. two parts the glomerulus (capillary network) and glomerular capsule
the nephron: glomerular capsule
a double walled epithelial cup that surrounds the glomerular capillaries. blood plasma is filtered here and then the filtered fluid passes into the renal tubule
the nephron:Renal tubule
- into which the filtered fluid of kidneys passes. 3 main sections. a) proximal convoluted tubule
- b) loop of henle (nephron loop)
- c) distal convoluted tubule
descending limb of the loop of Henle
this is the first part and dips into the renal medulla it then makes a hair pin turn and returns to the renal cortex as the ascending limb of the loop of henle
