Renal Physiology - Part 10
The kidneys are of outstanding importance. They perform a number of homeostatic functions including filtration of plasma and elimination of metabolic waste products, regulation of the composition and volume of the extracellular fluid, and regulation of blood pressure. The kidneys are also endocrine organs. Test your basic knowledge of renal physiology by taking this simple quiz.
(1)   Within the kidney glomerular capillaries, the colloid osmotic pressure of plasma __________ as blood moves from the beginning to the end of the glomerular capillary.
(2)   Glomerular filtration rate (GFR) in an average-sized, resting adult human being is:
(3)   Glomerular filtration rate (GFR) in an average-sized, resting adult human being is:
(4)   Renal blood flow (RBF) in an average-sized, resting adult human being is:
(5)   Renal plasma flow (RPF) in an average-sized, resting adult human being is:
