Human body and its health problems had been unknown for centuries until the evolution of the medical field in the late 1800s which lead to a rise in the average life expectancy from thirty six to a sweeping seventy eight. Then specialists started to identify the structure and the function of each organ. That’s when they found how important some organs as well as the human body cannot work properly without it. The kidney is one of those organs due to how fundamental it can
Both the kidney of the pig, and the kidney of the sheep shared similar structures and shapes. The shape of these kidneys are both bean like. The pig’s kidney was much less significant in size compared to the kidney of the sheep. They are both extremely dark red, with a tint of brown. Their odd shape allows for them to function correctly and filtrate urine production and blood. The kidneys of the fetal pig can be located on both sides of the spine behind the abdominal organs. The kidneys’ are a vital part in the process of removing urine from the body. The path that urine takes to exit the body is very specific. First, the urine is in the kidney. Next, the urine goes into the ureters, followed by the bladder and urethra before exiting. I have learned through this experiment that the kidney is a very unique and vital organ that performs many

Polycystic kidney disease is a genetic or hereditary disorder in which clusters of cysts develop within your kidneys. Cysts are round sacs containing water-like fluid. Over time, these cysts will enlarge, multiply and damage the kidneys which can lead to kidney failure. Kidneys are usually the most severely affected organs from this disease, but cysts can also develop in your liver, pancreas, spleen, ovaries, and large bowel. Polycystic kidney disease can also affect the brain and heart. PKD is the fourth leading cause of kidney failure. This disease is found in all races occurs equally in men or woman and causes about 5% of all kidney failure.
Health care associated infections (HAI) are one of the most common issues in hospital settings. These types of infections are not present during hospital administration but instead appear 48-72 hours after hospitalization. Common healthcare associated infections include bloodstream infections, urinary tract infections, pneumonia and surgical site infections. One of the most prevalent of these infections is a urinary catheter associated infection.
Before the dissection I felt confident in myself. Even though I was kind of nervous about the way that I would react to the smell or the way that it looked. I thought that this project will be a good learning experience. I have dissected a frog before and I thought it was cool to see the inside of a creature. Even though I have been a bit nervous, I truly have been looking forward to this project.I also hope to learn about how each organ of the pig works together in a living pig. Over all I am excited about the dissection.
The term cancer is used to describe the scenaros where cellss in the body chnage and spiral out of control. Your body consisy of tiny building blocks that are called cells. Healthy cells grow when the body require them, and ssunsquently die when the body no longer needs them. Cancer is made up of dysfunctional cells that continue to grow even though your body no longer requires them. In most types of cancer, these dysfuctional cells eventually grow to for a lump or in essence a tumor. if these abnormal cells continue to forumlate tumors for a exnteened amount of tiem, they can eveuall grow into nearby areas and subsequntely spread to other areas of the body. Cancer that manfiest itself in the kidney is called renal or kidney cancer.
A thirty-five-year-old married man with four children is suffering from the end-stage of kidney failure. All do to suffering years with chronic renal inadequacy and kidney disease. He is currently on dialysis, which has improved his health significantly to where he can function well and can expect to remain about the same while on it (Grisez, 1997, question 50).
All my life I have struggled with my kidneys, more specifically my ureters. I was born with one of my ureters smaller than the other, which resulted in having complications to void. If I didn’t go to the bathroom the second I needed, intense bladder infections that would give me high fevers for days was expected. Everything from experimental surgeries, to having an injection brought in from NASA was done.
As regards the first aspect, it happens that in hemolytic uremic syndrome the blood within the capillaries, the smallest blood vessels in the body, begins to coagulate in an abnormal way. When red blood cells pass through the capillaries clogged, they are punched from one side and broken. (Hemo-blood + lysis-destruction). The second
Mars: the Red Planet. It has intrigued us as far back as the Babylonians, who called Mars Negral. The Egyptians were the ones to give Mars a name based on color, the “Red One.” The Romans named their god of war Mars. Over the next almost 2000 years, numerous astronomers did research and observed the planet trying to understand its atmosphere and what may be on the surface. Rover landings in 1997 and 2004 gave us the first up close look at Mars’ surface and is the basis for all the skepticism we have about the possibility of life on the Red Planet (NASA.com).
heterogeneous disorders that affect the kidneys, ureters and bladder. In this group are included common problems such as vesicoureteral reflux to severe life-threatening malformations as bilateral renal agenesis. (1-4)
Kidney stones (calculi) are solid or semi-solid mineral-like substances occurring in the urinary tract. The urinary tract consists of the kidneys, ureters, bladder, and urethra. Kidney stones can form anywhere within the urinary tract, within the kidney, within the ureter (the tube draining urine from the kidney), or in the bladder. Kidney stones are crystalline masses that form from minerals and proteins in the urine. Kidney stones form when a change occurs in the normal balance of water, salts, minerals, and other things found in urine. These stones may contain various combination of chemicals. The most common type of stone contains calcium in combination with either oxalate or phosphate.Depending on their composition, they may be smooth, round, jagged, spiky
