32

New cards
33
  • Hydronephrosis: kidneys are backed up and swell> Renal failure

New cards
34

Hydronephrosis

Occurs when a kidney has an excess of fluid (swelling) due to a backup of urine, often caused by an obstruction in the upper part of the urinary tract

New cards
35

How does hydronephrosis occur with urolithiasis?

When a stone causes a blockage, it can cause backup of urine (hydronephrosis)

New cards
36

39

and results in bladder

New cards
40

outflow obstruction

New cards
41

What is the concern with BPH?

  • can lead to UTIs and create obstructions

New cards
42
  • Also post renal kidney injury/failure

New cards
43

New cards
50

What are the most common risk factors for UTIs?

· Female: TEACH GIRLS TO WIPE FRONT TO BACK

New cards
52

· Use of diaphragm with spermicide, bubble baths

New cards
58

70

How do elderly usually present with a UTI?

May have new onset of confusion along smelly urine

New cards
71

Nephritis

  • Infection and inflammation in kidney- affects the renal pelvis, calyces, medulla

New cards
72
  • Usually caused by E.coli, Proteus, or Pseudomonas

New cards
73
  • Typically starts in lower tract and infection ascends from bladder

New cards
74

Systemic Manifestations of Infection- could lead to sepsis, if not taken care of

New cards
75
  • Filtration, reabsorption, and secretion can be impaired (can decrease renal function)

New cards
76
  • Repeated attacks can cause scarring and renal damage

New cards
77

Glomerulonephritis

damage to kidneys as a result of immune response; type 3 hypersensitivity-immune complex hypersensitivity

New cards
78

Pyelonephritis

  • inflammation of the kidney and renal pelvis

New cards
79
  • CVA (costovertebral angle) tenderness and fever

New cards
80

Hallmark manifestation of Glomerulonephritis

Tea colored urine

New cards
81

Key difference between pyelonephritis and glomerulonephritis

pyelonephritis is the inflammation of the kidney due to the urinary tract infections that reach the renal pelvis of the kidney, while glomerulonephritis is the inflammation of tiny blood vessels of the kidney known as glomeruli due to inflammation and thickening of the glomerular basement membrane that becomes leaky

New cards
82

Acute Glomerulonephritis (AGN) causes

  • streptococcal infection

New cards
83
  • bacterial endocarditis

New cards
84
  • viral infections

New cards
85

Chronic Glomerulonephritis (CGN) causes

  • immune diseases

New cards
86
  • HTN

New cards
87
  • DM

New cards
88

How does protein effect the kidneys?

i. Normally, kidneys are relatively non-permeable to proteins

New cards
89

ii. When kidneys are damaged, they can allow protein to leak, resulting in proteinuria

New cards
90

iii. When patients have proteinuria, can develop low albumin levels in blood; kidneys become permeable to protein and start leaking protein

New cards
91

iv. In people with kidney conditions, high-protein diets can be nephrotoxic; when people have existing kidney conditions and losing protein in the urine, albumin will drop in blood. Protein cannot simply be replaced- will cause further kidney damage; protein shouldn't get too low but cannot have too much

New cards
92

Proteinuria

the presence of an abnormal amount of protein in the urine

New cards
93

Hypoproteinemia

low protein in blood

New cards
94

Hypoalbuminemia

decreased albumin levels in blood

New cards
95

Hyperlipidemia

-excessive amounts of lipids in the blood

New cards
96

-because liver is conserving cholesterol due to low protein/albumin

New cards
97

Manifestations of nephrotic syndrome and why these occur****

· Proteinuria

New cards
98

· Hypoproteinemia

New cards
99

· Hypoalbuminemia

New cards
100
