• 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)
  • 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)
  • 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)
  • high
  • 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)
  • 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)
  • Patients have been maintained longer than three decades on dialysis, but unfortunately average mortality rates and hospitalizations are high. (wikipedia.org)
