Based on the data given, it could be concluded that when unfiltered blood enters the kidney, it is being rid of its waste, essentially filtering it. The blood travels through the nephron, which then sends the filters blood out of the kidney,
Blood passes downward posterior to the heart which then supplies the head, neck, upper limbs, abdominal cavities, and smaller arteries to other organs before reaching the lower limbs. After all organs have received blood the deoxygenated blood returns to the right side of the heart. The deoxygenated blood gets back to the heart by two veins. The superior vena cava and the inferior vena cava where the process begins again. The sole purpose of blood is to transport substances from place to place in the body.
Post-void residual measurement is when you are asked to urinate for the physician and the urine is measured. After measurement the physician will check for any existing urine in the bladder with a catcher or ultrasound test. If a large amount of urine is in the bladder this may indicate damage to the urinary tract, bladder nerves, or muscles. Urinary incontinence is not always preventable, but you can decrease your risk by: maintain healthy weight, practice exercises involving the pelvic, avoid caffeine and acidic foods, and begin to eat more fiber. Urinary incontinence is a treatable condition.
Primary treatment involves the process of sedimentation. This process removed suspended solids form the waste. Secondary treatment removes and dissolves biodegradable matter from waste. Tertiary treatment involves the removal of any other contaminate present in the waste. 3.
Colbert et al (2013) explain that there is a vicious cycle between how the kidneys function and blood pressure. In patients suffering from kidney disease, the blood flow to the kidneys is decreased. To make up for this decreased blood flow, the kidneys release renin to increase the patient’s blood pressure and improve circulation to the kidneys. In patients with PKD, the damaged kidneys do not benefit from this process. The kidneys continue to increase the blood pressure, but are unable to improve their function.
The BUN and creatinine clearance test can be done together. These levels provide a ratio (BUN-to-creatinine), which helps with determining any issues with the kidney and check for any issues, such as dehydration, that may have caused abnormal creatinine and BUN
In industry, in many biomedical appliances are used the phenomenon of peristalsis, such as finger pump, blood pump machine, heart-lung machine, dialysis machine. This mechanism was first introduced by Latham . He performed several investigations theoretically and experimentally to understand the phenomenon of peristalsis in the ureteral functions. After Latham’s significant works, Shapiro  and Fung and Yih  have described biologically and medically important reflux phenomenon. Vesicoureteral Reflux (VUR) is the backward flow of urine from the bladder into the kidneys.
As Angiotensin I flows through the renal and pulmonary circulations, a second enzyme called Angiotensin Converting Enzyme (ACE) cleaves Angiotensin I into Angiotensin II. Angiotensin II acts in three ways to conserve ECF volume. First, AT-II is a powerful vasoconstrictor. AT-II constricts the renal arteries and arterioles in order to increase perfusion pressure in the renal cortex where most glomeruli are located. Second, AT-II crosses into 2 areas of brain lacking the blood-brain barrier (the SFO- Subfornical Organ and OVLT – Vascular Organ of the Lamina Terminalis) to trigger the sensation of thirst.
The first treatment is called plasma exchange or plasmapheresis. A liquid portion from the blood called plasma is removed and separated from the blood cells. The plasma is then brought back into the body, which produces more plasma that was taken away by the attacking immune system. This treatment may even remove certain antibodies which made the immune system attack in the first place. The second treatment is called immunoglobulin therapy, which is receiving healthy Immunoglobulin from blood.
The liver 's primary activity is to channel the blood originating from the stomach origin, before passing blood to whatever remains of the body. The liver additionally detoxifies chemicals and processes drugs. As it does as such, the liver secretes bile that winds up back in the digestive organs. The liver likewise makes proteins essential for blood thickening and different capacities. A sound liver is
