similar to interstitial fluid
no RBC, few plasma proteins
the movement of substances out of the nephron and into the peritubular capillaries
"saving the good stuff"
anything that moved out of the nephron stays in the body
the movement of substances from peritubular capillaries and interstitial fluid into the nephron for elimination
"concentrating the bad stuff"
ml/min or liters/day
how much fluid leaves glomerulus and enters Bowman's capsule and how fast
pressure inside the glomerulus
increased fluid ->increased pressure
if normal and BP drops a little, at the glomerulus it will detect and constrict the efferent arterioles and dilate the afferent arterioles.
occuring during cardiovascular shock
the kidneys can't compensate and may result in kidney failure
what is the average adults with both kidneys GFR?
the permeability to water is directly controlled by ADH.
the higher the ADH the more permeability to water it becomes.
water leaves the collecting ducts and enter the vasa recta
