systemic circulation

Overview of cardiovascular physiology

Flow = gradient


gradient = flow x resistance


mean arterial pressure = cardiac output x total peripheral resistance

Cardiac and smooth muscle function

Cardiac and Smooth Muscle Function


calcium release


Smooth and cardiac muscle require some extracellular calcium for contraction.

smooth muscle = 10 - 90 %

of total calcium needed

cardiac muscle  10%

Renal physiology

Renal Physiology

  • Ultrafiltration

    • GFR = 125 mL/min

  • Reabsorption

    • water, ions (Na+, Cl-, HCO3-), small molecules (glucose)

  • Secretion

    • ions (H+, K+), certain organic anions and cations, certain drugs (penicillin)

  • Excretion

     1 mL/min

Fig. 26.7 Tortora and Derrickson

Clearance how many ml of plasma are cleared of a substance in one minute

ClearanceHow many mL of plasma are cleared of a substance in one minute?

  • Cx = rate of urinary excretion /

    plasma concentration

  • GFR = Cinulin Ccreatinine

  • Cx = 125 mL/min

    x is freely filtered and neither reabsorbed nor secreted.

  • Cx < 125 mL/min

    There is net reabsorption of x.

  • Cx > 125 mL/min

    There is net secretion of x.

    • most HCO3-

    • all glucose

    • all amino acids

  • Diuretic Action

    • carbonic anhydrase inhibitors

      • block NaHCO3 reabsorption

  • Reabsorption

    • Na+ and Cl-

  • Diuretic Actions

    • Loop Diuretics

      • block Na+/K+/2Cl- transporter

    • Osmotic Diuretics

    • Secretion

      • K+

  • Diuretic Action

    • K+ sparing diuretics

      • inhibit the effects of aldosterone

  • ADH

    • Reabsorption

      • H2O

  • Diuretic Action

    • Drinking H2O inhibits ADH secretion.

      • via decreased plasma osmolarity

  • The liver tags some substances for secretion into the bile by conjugating them with another molecule (e.g. glycine).

  • After the bile is released into the intestine, many of these substances are reabsorbed into the blood.

  • Conjugated substances are then filtered into the renal tubules and excreted in the urine.

Ion trapping

Ion Trapping

  • Ionized substances are less likely to diffuse across cell membranes than uncharged substances.

    BH+B + H+

    HA H+ + A-

    lower pH (more acidic)higher pH (more alkaline)

  • Changing the pH of the urine will change which substances are ionized.

    • Urine is normally somewhat acidic (pH  6).

    • Urine can be alkalinized by giving acetazolamide.
