No kidneying – an overview of kidney physiology

August 31, 2011

As a preparation for an exam on the pathophysiology of the kidney, I created an overview scheme of most of the channels that are responsible for the kidneys fluid, electrolyte, and therefore pressure regulating actions. This overview turned out to be rather technical, but it contains a lot of information. I just tried to put it on one page. This of course does not imply that it is helpful for every individual studying the kidney. All the abbreviations can conveniently be found on trustworthy sites such as Wikipedia. If you have questions/comments, just tell me!
