    • Lisa And Randy Save Ass Grass Esp Pretty Sexy Rocks in Reno
    • 1. l vent      2. aorta     3. renal art            4. smller arteries     5. aff arteriole
    • 6. glomerulus    7. eff arteriole
    • 8. peritubular caps   9. smller veins (venules)     10. renal vein     11. inferior vena cava     12. r atrium
  2. urine flow
    • Really pretty dudes like a dick cuz chicks really use back up urethras
    • 1. renal cortex/medulla: bowman's cap     2. prox convoluted tubule     3. descending tubule     4. loop of henle    5. ascend tube    6. distal conv tube    7. collecting duct    8. calyx    9. renal pelvis    10. ureter    11. bladder    12. urethra    13. urethral meatus
  3. adlosterone does what
    regulates na retention, h2o reabsorption, controls k excretion
  4. more aldosterone =
    incr bp
  5. what triggers release of aldosterone
  6. aldosterone cycle 6
    low bp -->Renin-->angiotensin-->aldosterone-->na/h2o reabs & K exreted-->bp/vol increases
  7. antidiuretic hormone adh 
    released if...
    low h2o intake/ h2o loss
  8. adh required for
    water reabsorption and urine concentration
  9. adh released by
    posterior pit gland
  10. why does adh make 
    distal conv. tubes and collecting ducts
    more permeable to h2o
    allows to be reabsorbed into circulation to incr bld vol and bp
  11. adh cycle 4
    bp/bld vol low-->adh-->h2o reabsorbed-->bp/bld vol increased
  12. normal gfr
    glomerular filtration rate
    125 ml/min (180 L qd)
  13. normal gfr urinary output
    1.5 l qd
  14. what is gfr
    rate of filtration of fluid and waste from bld stream
  15. normal specific gravity
  16. norm pH
  17. norm rbc
  18. norm wbc
  19. casts norm
  20. best test for kidney function
    Creatinine Clearance
  21. Normal CR
    • serum: 0.5 - 1.5 mg/dl (incr for men)
    • urine: 85-135 ml/min
  22. stress
    wkness of pelvic floor muscles causing urine to leak w any incr in intraabdominal pressure
  23. urge
    muscle over activity causes an abrupt, strong desire to void and inability to hold urine
  24. overflow
    obstruction causes too much urine in bladder, putting pressure on urethra causing constant dribbling
  25. functional
    no urinary tract abnormality; dementia - forget to go
  26. neurogenic
    loss of innervation d/t trauma, neuro probs, or spinal cord lesion/tumor
  27. partial neurogenic
    can massage bladder to urinate (Crede's maneuver
  28. complete neurogenic
    may need cystostomy to drain bladder
  29. diet considerations
    risk for renal calculi
    no spinach, rhubarbs, swiss chard, cocoa, beets, wheat germ, pecans, peanuts, okra, choc, lime peel, TEA

  31. turp is
    transurethral resection of prostate-->stent placement and laser ablation

    cystoscope and use of laser to shrink/destroy prostate tissue.
  32. bph tx
    • after operation
    • cont bladder irrigation w nss usually ordered to remove clotted bld from bladder and ensure urniary drainage; 3-way cath
  33. bladder ca
    • more common in men aged 50-70
    • smokers double risk
    • occupational exposure

    • oliguric stage
    • diuretic stage
    • recovery stage
    • uremic fetor
  39. K and Na
    Ca and P 
    work in conjunction
    • k incr = hyperkalemia
    • na decr = hyponatremia
    • ca decr = hypocalcemia
    • p incr = hyperphosphatemia
  40. ca decr = hypocalcemic
    causes = =
