  12. how many liters of fluid produced daily by glomeruli?
    180 liters
  13. characteristics of the glomerular filtration membrane?
    • slit membranes
    • basal laminae
    • endothelial cells
    • fenestrations
  14. list in order the blood vessels carrying blood to kidney
    • renal artery
    • interlobar artery
    • arcuate artery
    • interlobular artery
    • afferent arteriole
    • glomerulus
    • efferent arteriole
    • peritubular capillary
  15. what pressure is highest in renal corpuscle under normal condition?
    glomerular blood hydrostatic pressure
  16. what drugs promote fluid loss in urine?
  17. where does process of filtration occur?
    bowman's capsule
  18. why does an obstruction in proximal convoluted tubules decreases glomerular filtration rate ?
    hydostatic pressure in glomerular capsule increases which will decrease net filtration pressure
  19. when there is an inability for kidneys to secrete wastes in sufficient amounts to maintain homeostasis what will it eventually lead to?
    renal failure
  20. Image Upload
    what layer is this ?

  32. Image Upload
  33. if sympathetic stimulation to afferent and efferent arterioles decreases what will happen to glomerular filtration rate?
