Sample text

Dividing both sides of the equation by Px yields the familiar clearance formula: Applied Renal Physiology Cx ¼ GFR þ Tx =Px Thus, the clearance of a substance experiencing net reabsorption is less than GFR (Tx is negative), and the clearance of a substance experiencing net secretion is greater than GFR (Tx is positive). The ratio of the clearance of a substance to inulin clearance gives an indication of the net handling of that substance by the kidneys. 0, it experiences net secretion. RENAL BLOOD FLOW AND RENAL PLASMA FLOW The kidneys receive 25% or more of cardiac output.

In the kidneys, between perfusion pressures of 80 and 180 mm Hg, GFR and RBF vary less than 10% (Fig. 2-7). Flow (Q) is equal to pressure (P) divided by resistance (R). Renal artery Afferent arteriole Glomerulus As pressure increases, flow can remain constant only if resistance increases proportionately. The site of this resistance change in the kidneys is the afferent arteriole. Autoregulation is intrinsic to the kidneys and occurs in the isolated, denervated kidney and in the adrenalectomized animal.

This value approximates the accepted general range for daily urine production in dogs. Thus, if dogs are deprived of food and urine volumes decrease substantially (renal solute load decreases), the water need may be small. Water requirements of sick animals may be increased over basal requirements owing to increased contemporary fluid losses caused by evaporation (through panting), diarrhea, vomiting, or dilute urine. Clinicians must estimate how much water needs increase by assessing the volume of these additional fluid losses.
