This lecture will present the regulation of H and Ca ions as well as discuss the hormonal and neural regulation of renal function. The sections for this lecture are:Life is a series of chemical reactions occurring in compartmentalized environments. The main purpose of life is to keep itself alive Physiology, the study of how life works, is based on the simultaneous occurrence of the following three concepts: levels of organization structure / function relationship homeostatic regulation levels of organizationstructure- functionhomeostaticregulationRenal System
