This webinar is part two in our series on the renal system. We will go into greater depth on topics touched upon in the first webinar, most notably covering glomerular filtration rate (GFR), the countercurrent multiplier mechanisms, and the basics of dialysis. Tune in for a more advanced look at renal topics!
Renal System Part 2
At a glance
Calculate renal clearance and relate it to GFR
Read renal clearance graphs and diagrams for different substances
Predict renal compensations for changes in blood pressure and blood pH
Link kidney stones to Ksp
Renal clearance and GFR
How the kidneys modulate blood pH
The 6 molecules and hormones that impact the kidneys
The renin-angiotensin-aldosterone patheay
Formation of kidney stones
How dialysis works
On the MCAT
The renal system is often tested within the framework of other systems (circulatory, endocrine, and respiratory). The renal system is also tested using concepts of general chemistry (blood pH, kidney stone formation)
Dialysis is not specifically tested but good to know how it works, as the MCAT likes machines
I think these webinars are really helpful! I like how they’re styled like a TED talk, so they don’t interfere with the day, but they’re really helpful review 🙂
I found everything helpful about these webinars: the explanations, the illustrations, just everything!
Amazing material conveyed concisely and in great detail!
The wealth of information and sample questions are great.
