Flashcards in Urinalysis: gross exam - SG Deck (13):
1

Weight of quantity of liquid as compared to weight of equal amount of distilled water

specific gravity

2

isosthenuric urine is in what range?

1.010 - 1.012

3

specific gravity is proportional to:

the amount of solutes dissolved in urine

4

decreased water intake causes (decreased/increased) SG

increased (less diluted)

5

increased fluid intake causes (decreased/increased) SG

decreased

6

pyometra causes (decreased/increased) SG

decreased

7

diabetes insipidus causes (decreased/increased) SG

decreased

8

increased excretion solutes (glucose, protein) causes
(decreased/increased) SG

increased

9

diabetes mellitus causes (decreased/increased) SG

increased

10

liver/renal disease causes (decreased/increased) SG

decreased

11

diuretics cause (decreased/increased) SG

decreased

12

increased SG can be due to (3):

(increased solute concentration)

- decreased water intake (less diluted)
- increased excretion solutes (glucose, protein)
- diabetes mellitus (more glucose)

13

decreased SG can be due to (5):

(decreased solute concentration)

- increased fluid intake
- pyometra
- diabetes insipidus
- liver renal disease
- diuretics
