Front Back
a renal corpuscle consist of
a glomerulus and bowmans capsule
the kidneys are located behind
pertoneum
all of these are found at the hilus of the kidney
renal artery, spinal column, renal vein.
the cavity within the kidney that collects urine is the
renal pelvis
the renal vein takes blood from the kidney to the
inferior vena cava
all of these are parts of the renal tubule
glomerulus
if body fluids are becoming too acidic, the kidneys will excrete more of these ions in urine
hydrogen ions
the hormone that directly increases the reabsorption of water by the kidneys is
ADH
the process of glomerular filtration takes place from the
glomerulus to bowman's capsule
the process of tubule reabsorption takes place from the
renal tubule to peritubular capillaries
the renal pyramids make up the
renal medulla
renal filtrate differs from blood plasma in this way
there is no blood cells in filtrate
when the blood level of oxygen decreases, the kidneys secrete
erythropoientin
when blood pressure decreases, the kidneys secrete
renin
atrial natriuretic peptide (ANP) is produced by the
heart
artial natriuretic peptide is produced by the heart and causes the kidneys to excrete sodium ions
creatinine is a nitrogenous waste product that comes from energy metabolism in
the muscles
if body fluids are becoming too alkaline, the kidneys will excrete more of these ions in the urine
bicarbonate ions
the kidneys are protected from mechanical injury by the
rib cage and adipose tissue
urine is propelled through a ureter by
smooth muscle
normal values for daily urinary output and pH of urine might be
1.5 liters/6.0
urea is a nitrogenous waste product that comes from the metabolism of
amino acids
the glomerular filtration rate will decrease if
blood flow through the kidneys decrease
in tubular reabsorption, glucose and amino acids are reabsorbed by the process of
active transport
voluntary control of urination is provided
external urethral sphincter
the part of the urinary bladder that actually eliminates the urine is the
detrusor muscle
