## Resource summary

### Question 1

Question
Chronic renal failure can cause anaemia.
• True
• False

### Question 2

Question
Which of these is an unhealthy glomerular filtration rate (GFR)?
• 22L/hour
• 150L/day
• 125mL/min

### Question 3

Question
Choose the incorrect statement about renal blood flow.
• It requires high pressure.
• It is 20-25% of cardiac output.
• It is at a rate of about 2-2.4L/min.

### Question 4

Question
There are forces which drive glomerular filtration and those that oppose it. The effective filtration pressure is always about [blank_start]+10[blank_end]mmHg. You can calculate it by adding together the forces that drive filtration (glomerular [blank_start]hydrostatic[blank_end] pressure and capsular [blank_start]osmotic[blank_end] pressure) and minusing the forces that oppose filtration (glomerular [blank_start]osmotic[blank_end] pressure and capsular [blank_start]hydrostatic[blank_end] pressure). Remember that [blank_start]capsular[blank_end] osmotic pressure is negligible i.e. zero.

### Question 5

Question
Which equation describes renal clearance?
• Cs = (Us x V) / Ps (clearance of substance is equal to the concentration of the substance in the urine, times the volume of urine per unit time, divided by the concentration of the substance in the plasma)
• Cs = (Ps x V) / Us (clearance of substance is equal to the concentration of the substance in the plasma, times the volume of urine per unit time, divided by the concentration of the substance in the urine)
• Cs = (Us / V) x Ps (clearance of substance is equal to the concentration of the substance in the urine, divided by the volume of urine per unit time, times the concentration of the substance in the plasma)

### Question 6

Question
Choose the incorrect statement about glomerular filtration rate(GFR).
• The GFR declines slowly with age.
• To measure renal clearance we need a molecule that is not reabsorbed, secreted, or metabolised
• Inulin or creatinine can be used to calculate GFR but inulin is commonly used clinically because it is a waste product of the muscles, whereas creatinine must be injected
• GFR is fairly normal even if only 'one kidney' is intact. (half of nephrons)

### Question 7

Question
The filtration fraction is the amount of the plasma (non-cellular component of blood—red blood cells are too big) which is filtered through the glomerulus. It can be calculated by [blank_start]multiplying[blank_end] the glomerular filtration rate by the renal [blank_start]plasma[blank_end] flow rate. (The renal plasma flow rate can be taken as [blank_start]half[blank_end] of the renal blood flow, i.e. if renal blood flow is 1.25L/min, renal plasma flow is [blank_start]625ml[blank_end]/min.) The equation is then [blank_start]FF = GFR x RPF[blank_end].
• multiplying
• dividing
• plasma
• blood
• half
• 20-25%
• 625ml
• 125ml
• FF = GFR x RPF
• FF = GFR / RPF

### Question 8

Question
The filtered load is the amount of substance filtered per minute. Choose the best equation for filtered load.
• FL = GFR x Ps
• FL = GFR x Cs
• FL = Ps / GFR
• FL = Cs / GFR

### Question 9

Question

### Question 10

Question
Which of these molecules can be both secreted and reabsorbed in the nephron's tubules?
• K+
• NH3
• H+
• HCO3
• urea
• Na+
• Water

### Question 11

Question
PAH (p-aminohippurate) is only ever secreted in the nephron, and this secretion is always active.
• True
• False

### Question 12

Question
Choose the incorrect statement about the proximal convoluted tubule.
• It is the site of bulk reabsorption—66% of water, Na+, and Cl- are reabsorbed.
• All of glucose and amino acids reabsorbed in it.
• Half of urea is reabsorbed in it.
• Organic acids and drugs are secreted into it.
• 90% of HCO3 is reabsorbed in it.

### Question 13

Question
There are 4 sites of Na+ reabsorption: 66% of Na+ is reabsorbed in the [blank_start]PCT(proximal convoluted tubule)[blank_end]. 25% of Na+ is reabsorbed in the [blank_start]TAL(Thick ascending limb)[blank_end]. 5% of Na+ is reabsorbed in the [blank_start]DCT(distal convoluted tubule)[blank_end]. 3% of Na+ is reabsorbed in the [blank_start]CD(collecting duct)[blank_end].
• proximal convoluted tubule
• thick ascending limb
• thin ascending limb
• distal convoluted tubule
• collecting duct
• convoluted duct

### Question 14

Question
Choose the correct statement about transporters.
• Na+ is transported by luminal membrane transporters in tight epithelium.
• Na+ is transported by channels in leaky epithelium.
• Glucose uses Na+ dependent transporters (SGLT1 or SGLT2) to move into the cell from the filtrate.
• Glucose uses Na+ dependent transporters, GLUT1 or GLUT 2, to move into the blood out of the cell.

### Question 15

Question
The normal filtered load of glucose should be 0.
• True
• False

### Question 16

Question
In leaky epithelium such as the [blank_start]PCT[blank_end], the water permeability is high. Water can be reabsorbed via the paracellular or transcellular pathway. [blank_start]With[blank_end] ADH, aquaporins AQP1 and AQP2 move into the [blank_start]apical[blank_end] membrane to move water into the cell. AQP3 and AQP4 move water out of the cell. In tight epithelium such as the [blank_start]collecting duct[blank_end], water permeability is low. The only aquaporin used is [blank_start]AQP2[blank_end].

• Without
• apical
• basolateral
• AQP2
• AQP1
• AQP3
• AQP4

### Question 17

Question
The loop of Henle in the [blank_start]juxtamedullary[blank_end] nephrons is crucial for production of concentrated urine, i.e. it is important for [blank_start]absorbing[blank_end] the water and NaCl. The thin descending limb removes [blank_start]water[blank_end] (i.e. it is leaky) while the thick ascending limb removes [blank_start]NaCl[blank_end](i.e. it is tight).
• juxtamedullary
• cortical
• reabsorbing
• excreting
• water
• naCl
• NaCl
• water

### Question 18

Question
Which of these are appropriate average values for total body water?
• Males - 42L, Females - 38.5L
• Males - 32L, Females - 28.5L
• Males - 52L, Females - 48.5L

### Question 19

Question
Typical NaCl concentration in the body (ICF/ECF) is 145mM. This means typical fluid osmolarity is around:
• 145mosmol/L
• 290mosmol/L
• 72.5mosmol/L

### Question 20

Question
The kidneys are crucial for maintaining body water balance. If a person's water intake was 2400mL in a day, what could be a reasonable value for water excretion contribution by the kidneys?
• ~400mL
• ~2000mL
• ~1400mL

### Question 21

Question
Reabsorption of water in the PCT is driven by Na+ reabsorption and is isotonic.
• True
• False

### Question 22

Question
Primary urine in the PCT is [blank_start]isotonic[blank_end]. Due to water reabsorption in the tDLH, it becomes [blank_start]hypertonic[blank_end]. It turns [blank_start]hypotonic[blank_end] due to Na+ reabsorption in the TAL, and can become hypertonic again in the [blank_start]collecting duct[blank_end] during [blank_start]anti-diuresis[blank_end].
• isotonic
• hypertonic
• hypotonic
• collecting duct
• DCT
• anti-diuresis
• diuresis

### Question 23

Question
Choose the incorrect statement.
• Water moves to areas of low osmolarity
• Dehydration increases ECF osmolarity due to water loss, and water moves out of the ICF (shrinks cells)
• Hyperhydration decreases ECF osmolarity due to water gain, and water moves into the ICF (cells swell)
• ADH alters the permeability of the collecting duct

### Question 24

Question
With ADH, the collecting duct is relatively permeable to water and 8% of filtered water can be excreted.
• True
• False

### Question 25

Question
Choose the incorrect statement about isosmotic losses.
• Isosmotic losses can be things like diarrhoea, vomiting, and bleeding
• No ECF/ICF osmolarity gradient will be produced
• Volume loss is restricted to ICF

### Question 26

Question
Choose the incorrect statement about isosmotic gains.
• Isosmotic gains can be caused by renal failure
• ECF volume increases
• Cells will be affected

### Question 27

Question
There are two systems for regulating fluid gains and losses. An osmotic change (just water loss/gain) will be [blank_start]spread between the ICF and ECF[blank_end]. This effects cells. It can be corrected with [blank_start]ADH release[blank_end] changes, which is a [blank_start]fast[blank_end] response system. An isosmotic change will be [blank_start]limited to the ECF[blank_end]. This causes changes to blood pressure and volume which the heart can cope with. It can be corrected via [blank_start]Na+ excretion/retention[blank_end], which is a [blank_start]slow[blank_end] response system.
• spread between the ICF and ECF
• limited to the ECF
• Na+ excretion/retention
• fast
• slow
