what is acute renal failure
sudden interruption of renal function caused by obstruction, poor circulation, or kidney disease
What is anuria?
output of urine < 100 ml/ 24 hours
increased toxic levels of nitrogenous wastes in blood. happens when kidneys are not functioning properly - as with glomerulonephritis
slow, progressive loss of kidney function and glomerular filtration
inflammation of the bladder - as with chronic bladder infections
inflam of renal glomerulus characterized by DECREASED urine production, BLOOD and PROTEIN in urine, and EDEMA
blood in urine
what is hemodialysis? how often?
procedure to removes wastes from blood by filtering pt blood through a machine - performed at least 3 x wk
IVP? intravenous pyelography?
A radiology technique that involves injecting contrast medium (allergy precaution) into a vein and taking an x-ray of kidneys as the medium is cleared from the blood by kidneys.
procedure that breaks up stones within urinary system
renal disease characterized by massive edema and excess protein excretion
diminished urine production in relation to intake, usually < 400ml in 24 hours
what do you need?
- procedure in which blood is filtered through peritoneal membrane to remove waste products.
- Performed everyday
- Using dyalystate in peritoneal cavity and then draining it
- Fill, dwell, drain
polycystic kidney disease?
- multiple cysts on kidneys
excess production of urine
Protein in urine
a puss forming infection of kidney that starts in lower urinary tract and moves upward
when normal urinary channels (ureters, bladder, urethra) are dysfunctional this provides an alternative route for urine to leave the body
back flow of urine from bladder to ureter
a substance that is capable of losing a hydrogen ion
- condition of increased hydrogen ion concentration in the blood,
- increased CO2
condition of decreased hydrogen ion in blood, increased HCO3
volume of air that undergoes gas exchange
anatomic dead space?
portion of respiratory sys from nose to bronchioles that functions only as an air pathway, about 25% of air inhaled with each breath remains here and is unavailable for gas exchange
a substance that is capable of accepting hydrogen ions
- a weak acid or a weak base that transfers hydrogen ions between solutions to maintain acid - base balance
- HCO3, CO2
