How the Kidneys Regulate Acid Base Balance

1. How the Kidneys Regulate Acid Base Balance

Find out how your kidneys keep you alive by excreting acids and bases in conditions like respiratory acidosis, metabolic alkalosis, metabolic acidosis, and respiratory alkalosis.

Metabolic Alkalosis: Causes, Symptoms, and Treatment

2. Metabolic Alkalosis: Causes, Symptoms, and Treatment

We'll learn what metabolic alkalosis is all about in this lesson and how the respiratory system tries to save you from this potentially life-threatening condition.

Metabolic Acidosis: Causes, Symptoms, and Treatment

3. Metabolic Acidosis: Causes, Symptoms, and Treatment

This lesson discusses a condition called metabolic acidosis, what causes it, how buffer and the respiratory systems are involved, what tests results reveal, and how it's treated.

Acute Renal Failure - Prerenal Failure & Its Effects On The Body

4. Acute Renal Failure - Prerenal Failure & Its Effects On The Body

This lesson will mainly focus on the prerenal causes of acute renal failure, why they occur, how they influence the kidneys, and how this in turn causes problems in the body.

Acute Renal Failure - Intrinsic Renal Failure & Its Consequences

5. Acute Renal Failure - Intrinsic Renal Failure & Its Consequences

This lesson will focus on what intrinsic renal failure means, what can cause it, and how it differs from pre-renal failure. We'll also discuss some additional diagnostic and treatment strategies of acute renal failure not covered in other lessons on this topic.

Acute Renal Failure - Postrenal Failure & How It Alters The Body

6. Acute Renal Failure - Postrenal Failure & How It Alters The Body

This lesson will zero in on a particular form of acute renal failure known as postrenal failure, including covering its causes, signs, diagnostic tests, and treatment options.

What is Chronic Renal Failure? - Causes & Symptoms

7. What is Chronic Renal Failure? - Causes & Symptoms

This lesson will discuss chronic kidney disease, or chronic renal failure, as it was once more commonly called. We will have an overview of what it means and what it does to your body.

Infectious Causes of Kidney Disease

8. Infectious Causes of Kidney Disease

What is a kidney infection technically called? You'll find out in this lesson. You'll also learn what the main cause of a kidney infection is, the two routes it can be established, and how it is diagnosed and treated.

What Are Nephrotic and Nephritic Syndrome? - Signs & Consequences

9. What Are Nephrotic and Nephritic Syndrome? - Signs & Consequences

This lesson will discuss two syndromes associated with diseases that affect the filters inside of the kidneys, the glomeruli. These conditions are called nephrotic and nephritic syndrome.

Cystitis and the Neurogenic Bladder

10. Cystitis and the Neurogenic Bladder

This lesson will cover two different conditions affecting the same organ. They are known as cystitis and neurogenic bladder. We'll cover what they are, what symptoms they cause, and how they are treated.

Kidney and Bladder Stones: Types, Causes, Signs & Treatments

11. Kidney and Bladder Stones: Types, Causes, Signs & Treatments

This lesson will discuss the causes of the formation of urinary tract stones, including kidney and bladder stones, as well as how they are diagnosed and treated.

Renal Cancer: Causes & Symptoms

12. Renal Cancer: Causes & Symptoms

Renal cell carcinoma (RCC) is a type of kidney cancer that will be the focus of this lesson. You will learn where it microscopically originates from, what it clinically is, and how it can physiologically impact a person's body.

Bladder Cancer: Symptoms and Treatments

13. Bladder Cancer: Symptoms and Treatments

In this lesson, you will learn about bladder cancer, including the most common forms of bladder cancer, what transitional epithelium is, and how to help distinguish bladder cancer from other forms of urinary tract disease.

Polycystic Kidney Disease:  Affected Locations, Signs & Treatments

14. Polycystic Kidney Disease: Affected Locations, Signs & Treatments

This lesson will discuss an inherited disorder known as polycystic kidney disease as well as the latest understanding of why it occurs in people with this condition and how it can be diagnosed and treated.
