  • Kidneys

    Kidneys- The kidneys function to filter both toxins and additional not needed water. Kidneys have tons of nephrons which are tiny filters. A nephron is made up of two parts which are the glomerulus and the tubule. The glomerulus filters large molecules and blood cells from liquids and toxins. Then the filtered liquids and toxins go to the tubules. The tubule filters out more toxins missed from the glomerulus. It also gathers minerals and releases them back into the bloodstream. During the filtering in the glomerulus and tubule, the kidneys make urine. The urine will carry the toxins out of the body. The kidneys also make the hormones, erythropoietin, renin, and vitamin D. These hormones help to make red blood cells, regulate blood pressure, and maintain bone health. Bladder-…

  • Kidney Injury Analysis

    According to Grossman and Porth (2014), burns cause fluid loss from the vascular space, interstitial space, and intracellular space. The fluid loss, especially in those with large surface area burns, can cause hypovolemic shock quickly, which can cause hypoperfusion of organs and ultimately multiple organ dysfunction, such as renal failure. Fluids can help reduce the risk of kidney damage. The provider should supportively explain these concepts of fluid loss, hypovolemic shock, and the…

  • Kidney Stone Research Paper

    Kidney stones are hard crystal like objects that are formed from substances in the urine. Urine contains substances that can both form and prevent formation of stones. Usually these substances balance each other out, but when there are more minerals than the liquid can dilute, crystals begin to form. The crystals bond together with other minerals to form a solid mass that will continue to get larger unless passed out of the body with the urine. Cause, treatment and the prevention of reoccurrence…
