renal failure

pn 141 test 2: book: burke pg 784

what is renal failure a condition in which the kidneys are unable to remove accumulated waste products from the blood
is it acute or chronic or both both
what is it charecterized by azotemia
what is azotemia a buildup of nitrogenous waste products in the blood
what type of imbalances does it lead to fluid, electrolyte and acid base imbalances
ARF: what is it the rapid decline in renal function w/ an abrupt onset
ARF: is it reversible yes, with prompt Tx
ARF: is it common yes
ARF: risk factors major trauma, surgery, infection, hemorrage, severe ht failure, and Lower urinary tract obstructions
AFR: what are Iatrogenic causes of it nephrotoxic meds and contrast dye used in x rays
AFR: what age is at particular risk older adults
AFT: what is the most common cause ischemia (poor perfusion) of the kidneys and nephrotoxins
AFR: what are nephrotoxins agents that damage the kidney tissue
AFR: what are the three ways that the causes are classified prerenal, intrarenal and postrenal
AFR: prerenal failure- causes; impaired blood supply to kidneys b/c of a sudden and severe drop in blood pressure (shock),
AFR: prerenal failure- example fluid volume deficit, hemmorhage, Ht failure, shock
AFR: intrarenal failure- causes; acute damage to renal tissue and nephrons (*direct damage to the kidneys) or acute tubular necrosis (ATN), abrupt decline in tubular and glomerular function do to either prolonged ischemia and or exposure to nephrotoxins
AFR: intrarenal failure- example acute glomerularnephritis, malignant HTN, ischemia, nephrotoxic drugs or substances, RBC destruction, muscle tissue breakdown due to trauma, heatstroke
AFR: postrenal failure- causes obstruction of urine flow (something beyond the kidneys caused damage)
AFR: prerenal failure- example urethral obstruction by enlarged prostate or tumor, ureteral or kidney pelvis obstruction by calculi
