This arrangement provides a high rate of blood flow into the glomerulus, but a high level of resistance to blood flowing out of the glomerulus.


This structural difference produces a hydrostatic pressure within the glomerulus that is twice that of other capilliariesin the body. This increased hydrostatic pressure forces more water to move from the glomerulus, across the semi-permeable glomerular membrane and into the Bowman's Capsule.

Particle that are small enough to pass through the glomerular membrane will diffuse from an area of high concentration from the glomerulus to low concentration to the Bowman's Capsule.

When large volumes of water are forced across the membrane, additioanl particles or solutes are "dragged along with the water". Thus, the large movement of water across the glomerulus removes even more solutes than diffusion alone would remove. The "washing" of additional solutes across the membrane by a large flux of water is known as convection.

Poteins are larger molecules and are too big to fit across a normal glomerular membrane.

Consequently, blood that leaves the glomerulus via the efferent arteriole has most of the water and electrolytes removed, but all of the plasma proteins remaining. Thus, blood in the efferent arteriole has a higher oncotic pressure. In order to adequately eliminate all of the waste products produced each day, we have to filter very large volumes of water across the glomerulus.

About ml per minute of filtrate is produced. By the time enough water has been moved across the membrane to wash out all of the surplus waste products, over-removal of water, glucose, electrolytes and other substances has occurred.

Consequently, large amounts of the filtered water and solutes will need to be reabsorbed from the tubule fluid into the blood. Solutes and water are reabsorbed into capillaries that are wrapped around the tubules, called peritubular capillaries. These peritubular capillaries are the continuation of the efferent arterioles. They are also responsible for perfusing the kidney. In addition to reabsorbing water and solutes from the tubule filtrate, surplus solutes can be secreted from the peritubular capillaries into the tubule filtrate for elimination in the urine.

Artificial Kidneys The dialysis filter is referred to as an artificial kidney. Blood is pulled from the patient and carried into the filter.

Once inside, the blood travels through many tiny tubules called hollow fibers. Water and solutes can pass across the semi-permeable membrane between the blood and the fluid that surrounds the hollow fibers.

Maintaining Safety in the Dialysis Facility

Any fluid or solutes that enters the filter canister will be drained out as waste. Blood arrives at the filter via the access tubing afferent arteriole. Blood enters the small hollow fibers within the filter glomerulus. Water and solutes diffuse across the semi-permeable membrane of the hollow fibers and collect in the canister Bowman's Capsule.

Collected fluid filtrate or effluent is then removed via the drainage tubing collecting tubule. Blood that remains in the hollow fibers is returned to the patient via the return side of the filter efferent arterial.

In the nephron unit, filtered water and waste enters the proximal tubule.

Because the nephron unit removes significantly more water and solutes than needed, most of the water and electrolytes that enter the tubule system are reabsorbed. Unlike the nephron unit, the artificial kidney cannot reabsorb water or solutes that enter the filter canister Any filtrate that enters the filter canister will be removed via the drainage tubule. Consequently, one of the differences in the artificial kidney is the absence of the proximal tubule, loop of henle and distal tubule where water and solute reabsorption and secretion occurs.

Thus, the drainage tubule that exits the filter is similar to the collecting tubule of the nephron unit, not the proximal tubule. To compensate for the inability to reabsorb water and solutes following removal from the blood, the artificial kidney is manipulated to restrict the actual removal to only surplus water and wastes. This is done by adjusting dialysis solutions and ultrafiltration rates.

If more water or solutes are removed than desired, they may need to be given back via intravenous infusions. Comment title. You have entered an invalid code. Submit Cancel.

Finally, the chapter on drug prescription for dialysis patients contains a wealth of clearly presented information which should be most useful to nephrologists in their daily practice. The chapter on outcomes for dialysis patients refers, however, only to data from US and Canadian Registries; its interest could have been enriched by comparisons with reports from other parts of the world Europe, Japan, Australia.

With the aim of meeting completely with the title of the book, two chapters are devoted to the use of extra-corporeal dialysis methods in the treatment of poisoning and of acute renal failure in the intensive care setting. Seventy four authors 67 from the USA and Canada have contributed to this well organized and clearly presented book, which is completed by a very welcome 23 page subject index.

Many chapters are substantiated by comprehensive and well up-dated reference lists which also make this book an excellent tool for teaching purposes. Oxford University Press is a department of the University of Oxford.
