Answer to Question #53915 in Human Anatomy and Physiology for Neda
A 5 year old child had some days of nausea & vomiting.Now his mucous & mouth dry.He is lethargic also. Describe his monitored changes of FF, GFR & RPF?(mark whether decrease or increase)
Continuous vomiting causes the loss of salts and water. Dry mucous and mouth confirm this condition. If person becomes hypovolemic autoregulation will occur: kidneys try to conserve water and salts. Angiotensin II will cause the constriction of efferent arteriole. It will greatly decrease RPF (renal plasma flow). Additional vasodilation of afferent arteriole will maintain or slightly decrease GFR (glomerular filtration rate). Very law GFR levels can be caused by kidney failure disease. FF (filtration fraction) = GFR/RPF. Due to the great decrease in RPF FF will increase. So, FF – increases, RPF – decreases (much), GFR – decreases (slightly) or is constant.
Hi Expert, so I wasn't able to try the new version because they closed of the submission portal. Oh well,
but I want to give you my sincerest thank you for helping me throughout this assignment! Honestly, you are an absolute legend! Your line by line explanation was superb and honestly helped me understand most of the concept I learnt during my semester better than my own lecturer! Thank you for consistently helping and being persistent with the versions!
You've honestly been the greatest help and I would have been so lost if it wasn't without your expertise!
So thank you once again!
