Understanding the Physiology of the Urinary System

  • : Online

The Understanding the Physiology of the Urinary System learning program is designed to introduce you to the functions of the system that removes waste from the body and ensures homeostasis of body fluids and electrolytes through urine production. This system consists of the kidneys ureters bladder and urethra.The program begins with an overview of the kidneys’ contribution to homeostasis of fluids electrolytes and pH within the body. After a brief introduction of the principles of diffusion and osmosis the program describes in depth how urine is produced. The program also takes a look at the key systems that regulate kidney function.

 

Upon completion of this learning program you will be able to::

  • Summarize the various roles of the kidneys in body fluid homeostasis.
  • Summarize other homeostatic functions of the kidneys.
  • List and describe the basic mechanisms of passive and active transport of substances across membranes.
  • List and describe the processes used by the nephron and collecting duct to form urine.
  • Describe the production of dilute and concentrated urine.
  • Explain the processes of urine elimination and micturition.
  • Identify the key mechanisms that regulate kidney function
