what can go wrong here? (ex: what if you had HTN? or what if you had a particular autoimmune disease that struck here? see RRD) Then the blood exits via the efferent arteriole and the arteriole evolves into comes up against an obstruction? What does the acronym RAAS stand for and what does this system normally do in the body? For instance, what does it do to help “direct” daily kidney function? As a result of its effect, is water system, the NPS? Ask the same questions about it. Now, the RAAS is supposed to be a “good guy”—helps with fluid/solute balance for the kidneys to keep your body “just right” minute-by-minute, day-by-day. When/how does the RAAS become an inadvertent enemy? How does it, in that situation, contribute to kidney disease & S&S? What (most of the time) doessomeone with kidney disease look like; what will you find upon your assessment? (BTW, in what other body-system disorder/issue is the RAAS a huge contributor to making the problem worse?)
POST-TEST DISCUSSION FOR PATHO TEST 3 fixable is which? Did you choose “pre-renal?” Good. Why? What, pathologically, happens intra-renally that can cause evolvement into worsening kidney disease? What are some of its cardinal S&S? Now, which one of them --“pre-renal,” “post-renal,” or “intra-renal” --would make the best Halloween costume? Just kidding. But I bet some of youcreative types could come up with something, like, say, pasting multicolored, multi-shaped casts all over you…. (… random silly thoughts because I just saw a pic of a couple who went to a Halloween party as a pink puffer and a blue bloater!) Speaking of fun and games, let’s bring many concepts together by looking at pictures. In each of the following, pretend this is a patient and/or an assessment finding that you are seeing as a nurse. Here’s what to ask and answer: By appearance, what disease would you think the patient has? What is its patho? How did you put together appearance with the patho? What other S&S would be likely? What
