Objective: Explain the pathophysiology of acute renal failure. Include prerenal, intrarenal, and postrenal causes- Pre Renal Impending problems or signs and symptoms involving malfunction of the renal system can be detected by: a. The inability of the patient to urinate known as anuria. b. Flank and side pain c. Painful urination (dysuria) d. Blood in the urine (hematuria) e. Diminished urine output or Urinary Retention f. A generalized feeling of weakness and malaise All of the preceding
found in brains of patients suffering from Alzheimer’s Disease (AD). Vast research thus, was targeted at defining the possible etiologic role of Al in AD. However, several findings, among them the fact that Al++ induced NFT’s are structurally different than those found in AD, have contributed to reducing the importance placed on Al++ as an etiologic factor of AD. The Al++ theory, however, still remains a theory, and further research needs to be done before it can be disproved. In 1970, Alfrey and collaborators
receive his MD degree, he obtained it by 1938. Kolff continued his education by starting his post graduate studies at Groningen University. He had many patients while studying at the University. But one specific man, dying from renal kidney failure inspired Kolff to analyze research on kidneys. After this hunch Kolff became very interested in artificially stimulating the function of the kidneys’ in order to remove toxins from the blood (Academy of Achievement, n.d.). So, he turned to his mentor Professor
kidneys are a major organ in the excretory system; they remove wastes from the blood and form of urine. They filter the blood, keeping it clean of all wastes and have a number of other functions as well. Due to the growth of cysts on the kidneys it makes it hard to carry out these functions and the will eventually cause the kidneys to fail. This paper will discuss what PKD is, the many symptoms and treatments of PKD, and recent developments in research of this disease.
Cancer is a disease that causes abnormal cells to divide uncontrollably and overrun other parts of the body. My research paper is on multiple myeloma. This is a type of cancer which effects plasma cells in the bone marrow. As malignant myeloma cells multiply, they cause the body to decrease the production of red blood cells, white blood cells and platelets. In this paper I will be reviewing clinical presentation, diagnosis, treatments and prognosis of multiple myeloma. (Heuther, S.E. & McCance,
of this paper will be presenting a general overview of the etiology of, global impact of, and compliance with treatment of hypertension. It will also cover the nonpharmacological interventions aimed at managing hypertension. Finally it will explore caring for the psychosocial needs of the patient and how this can help to treat and possibly prevent hypertension. One of the problems with essential hypertension is that it has no clear etiology. In one of the articles covered in this paper the essential

A limitation of the Girard et al., study is the amount of time it will take for renal cells to decrease expression of Gb3.

In a clinical setting, this is impractical because treatment is sought after the person is already infected with

Chronic Renal Failure (CRF) and Cardiovascular Disease. Currently twenty million American adults have CKD and millions of others are at increased risk. Age has no barrier on getting CKD. People with pre-existing health issues, and a part of certain population groups, are more often than not, likely to develop kidney disease. The main system involved in CKD is the Urinary System; however the Respiratory, Cardiovascular, and Digestive Systems are unfortunately adversely affected. This paper will concentrate
most prevalent health problems in the current society. There is a myriad of possible factors that can contribute to hypertension, such as the cardiovascular system, reninangiotensin-aldosterone system and sympathetic nervous system (Foex & Sear, 2004). This research paper aims to study the dysfunction of renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system in pathophysiology of hypertension and the effects of an antihypertensive drug, losartan on the angiotensin II type 1 receptors in response to the disease.
