4 organs of the urinary system

ureters, urinary bladder, kidneys, urethra

2

what does renal mean

pertaining to kidneys

3

describe the renal medulla and the structures that make up a renal pyramid

6-18 triangular structures- pyramids make up bulk of medulla, each pyramid has series of fine grooves, converge @ papilla

4

renal corpuscle function

production of filtrate

5

proximal convoluted tubule

reabsorption of water, ions, and organic nutrients

6

nephron loop

ascending sodium and chlorine ions

7

distal convoluted tubule

secrete ions, acids, drugs, toxins, and some reabsorpion of water and calcium

8

collecting system consist of

connecting tubule and collecting duct as well as the papillary duct

9

what is the function of the collecting system

reabsorption of water or secretion and reabsorption of sodium, potassium, various ions, deliver urine to minor calyx

10

renal papillae tips of renal pyramids

tips of renal pyramids

11

what happens at the renal papillae

ducts discharge urine in minor calyx

12

glomerulus

knot shaped chamber and capillary network

13

how does efferent arteriole help in production of filtrate

increase ofblood pressure flowing into glomerulus, forcing fluid into capsular space; producing filtrate

14

Why are females more susceptible to urinary tract infections than males

proximity of urethra to anus
female urethras are shorter, bacteria can get to bladder

15

What specific matabolic waste would you find in the capillary bed of a skeletal muscle?

urea, uric acid, creatinine

16
