Unformatted text preview: blood vessels?) 7. You are interested in measuring the mass flow rate (m dot) of NaCl ions in the Glomerulus due to net filtration pressure, knowing that the concentrations in the blood and Bowman’s Space are 300 and 250 mM, respectively. You also know that the blood density is 1.1 g/cm 3 , the permeability of the interface is 10 s/m, the area of the interface is 1 cm 2 , and that body temperature is 37 o C. The hydrostatic pressure in Bowman's Space is about 10 mm Hg and in the blood stream in the Glomerulus, pressure is 100 mm Hg. 8. Explain what happens when a patient takes a diuretic drug. 9. Hemodialysis is a last resort before kidney transplant. What are some non-invasive long-term measures a patient can take to prolong/promote kidney function?...
