(2005) as a two-compartment systme, as show % diagrammatically in Figure 7.18, where R is the rate or production of % urea by teh patient's body; V1 is the volume of the intracellular fluid; % V2 is the volume of the extracellular fluid (blood and interstitial % fluids); C1 and C2 are the concentrations of the urea in the fluids of % the two compartments, respectively; k12 and k21 are the mass transport % parameters between the two compartments; and k2 is the clearance constant % for the dialysis unit. An unsteady-state mass balance of urea on each of % the compartments yields the following two differential equations: % V1 dC1/dt = R - k12 * C1 + k21 C2 % V2 dC2/dt = k12 * C1 - k21 * C2 - k2 * C2 % For Patient X, the following parameters apply: % R = 100 mg/h k12 = 33 liters/h k21 = 33 liters/h % V1 = 10 liters V2 = 25 liters % The dialysis unit clearance rate constant is k2 = 8 liters/h. % When Patient X arrives at the dialysis unit, his blood urea nitrogen % (BUN) is 150 mg/liter.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
