• efferent
  • In other words, the filtration rate is dependent on the difference between the higher blood pressure created by vasoconstriction of the input or afferent arteriole versus the lower blood pressure created by lesser vasoconstriction of the output or efferent arteriole. (wikipedia.org)
  • Iohexol
  • The gold standard measurements of Golemular filtration rate using inulin or radioisotope-labeled or nonlabeled trace quantities of EDTA, technetium-99-diethylenetriamine pentaacetic acid, iothalamate or iohexol are expensive and time intensive which limits their clinical usefulness. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • Iohexol, a non-ionic, low osmolar, X-ray contrast medium (OmnipaqueR) that is safe and non-toxic and used for angiographic and urographic procedures, is eliminated from plasma exclusively by glomerular filtration. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • Glomerular filtration rate (GFR), a marker of kidney health, is most accurately measured by injecting compounds such as inulin, radioisotopes such as 51chromium-EDTA, 125I-iothalamate, 99mTc-DTPA or radiocontrast agents such as iohexol, but these techniques are complicated, costly, time-consuming and have potential side-effects. (wikipedia.org)
  • decreases
  • This decreases the GFR by reducing the surface area available for filtration. (wikipedia.org)
  • Working on sino atrial node cells by inhibiting T-type calcium channel activation, Efonidipine prolongs the late phase-4 depolarization of the sino atrial node action potential and suppresses an elevated HR. The negative chronotropic effect of Efonidipine decreases heart rate, myocardial oxygen demand and increases coronary blood flow. (wikipedia.org)
  • membrane
  • The glomerular filtration coefficient depend upon: The surface area of the filtering membrane. (wikipedia.org)
  • The dialyzer clearance K is usually estimated, based on the urea transfer ability of the dialyzer (a function of its size and membrane permeability), the blood flow rate, and the dialysate flow rate. (wikipedia.org)
  • basal
  • In keeping with its housekeeping gene properties, it has been suggested that cystatin C might be influenced by the basal metabolic rate. (wikipedia.org)
  • cause
  • 70 mL/min will cause an overload of the tubular reabsorption capacity for [alpha]1M (10), and the [alpha]1M concentration in the plasma will increase with increasingly restricted filtration. (thefreedictionary.com)
  • When podocytes contract, they cause closure of filtration slits. (wikipedia.org)
  • indicate
  • There are numerous coated vesicles and coated pits along the basolateral domain of the podocytes which indicate a high rate of vesicular traffic. (wikipedia.org)
  • pressure
  • The investigators also found that reduced glomerular filtration rate ranked below high systolic blood pressure, high body mass index, and high fasting plasma glucose, but was similar to high total cholesterol, as a risk factor for disability-adjusted life years. (doctorslounge.com)
  • The normal filtration coefficient is 12.5 ml per minute per mmHg of filtration pressure. (wikipedia.org)
  • They play an important role in maintaining the glomerular filtration rate despite fluctuations in blood pressure. (wikipedia.org)
  • Symptoms of mild hypothermia may be vague, with sympathetic nervous system excitation (shivering, high blood pressure, fast heart rate, fast respiratory rate, and contraction of blood vessels). (wikipedia.org)
  • lead
  • Disruption of the filtration slits or destruction of the podocytes can lead to massive proteinuria, where large amounts of protein are lost from the blood. (wikipedia.org)
