Pharmacology; Clinical review assignment: Renal failure
Renal failure is an increasing concern in Australia, with over 54 people dying every day from kidney related disease. The incidence of this pathology has been shown to...
reversible mild renal impairment in volume contracted states. When unopposed, this may lead to acute tubular necrosis and acute renal failure. NSAIDs also produce interstitial nephritis with or without nephrotic syndrome secondary to minimal change disease. Although this presents as acute renal failure, it can...
The urinary system, known as the renal system, consists of the two kidneys, ureters, the bladder, and the urethra. Each kidney consists of millions of functional units known as nephrons. The purpose...

Chronic renal failure is a worldwide public health problem. Millions of Americans are affected by this disease each year. It is a common condition in which there is progressive loss of kidney functioning. The loss of function usually takes months or years to occur, sometime not appearing until kidney...

Acute Kidney Injury: Not Just Acute Renal Failure Anymore?
Susan Dirkes, RN, MSA, CCRN
Until recently, no uniform standard existed for diagnosing and classifying acute renal failure. To clarify diagnosis, the Acute Dialysis Quality Initiative group stated its consensus on the need for...
Acute renal failure is the sudden loss of the kidneys ability to function; affecting more than 100,000 people in the United States alone each year (NIDDK, 2008). This paper will discuss the basic pathophysiology of acute renal failure, including its cause, disease mechanisms, symptoms, some of the treatments...
Hemodialysis (also HD) is one of the replace therapy for patients with acute and chronic renal failure. There are globally 2.2 million uremia patients (end stage renal disease, ESRD) receiving dialysis treatment, including over 89% of them receiving hemodialysis. As the cost of hemodialysis is high,...

Pulse Pressure is receiving more and more attention as being...
Scenario A: Acute renal failure. Ms. Jones, a 68-year-old female, underwent open-heart surgery to replace several blocked vessels in her heart. On her first day postoperatively, it was noted that she had very little urine output.

Other blood tests commonly performed are full blood count, electrolytes, renal function, thyroid function tests and erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR). This helps to exclude other causes of arthritis, most notably septic arthritis...
Renal Failure and Kidney Transplantation
Renal failure occurs when the kidneys become unable to perform the excretory functions needed to maintain homeostasis. When kidney filtration slows for any reason, urine production declines. As the decline continues, signs and symptoms of renal failure appear...

Renal failure, also called kidney disease, can be defined as damage to the kidneys the reduces the functioning of the kidneys. (1) This disease can be acute or chronic. In acute renal failure (ARF) the onset is rapid, causing an abrupt decline in the kidneys ability to excrete waste...

end-stage renal disease is usually inexorable in patients with diabetic and nondiabetic nephropathy. These patients can be identified at an early stage based on history, abnormal urinalysis or reduced glomerular filtration. Recent advances have made it possible to slow the progression of chronic renal failure...
