What Is The Function Of Dialysis Tubing
Synthetic: It is made of Cellulose or cellophane. ...Read more
Simple answer is that it is a medical technology used primarily to provide an artificial replacement for lost kidney function in people with renal failure. Hemodialysis remove wastes and excess water from the blood by circulating blood outside the body through an external filter, called a dialyzer. Blood and dialysate flow through in opposite directions and the ...Read more
Devices for rhythm: Pacemakers are medical devices implanted under the skin and connected to leads inserted through veins into the chambers of the heart. By sending out a small electrical impulse the pacemaker can restore heart rhythm. The most common use for a pacemaker is for a very slow heart beat to restore rhythm. They may be either single or double lead pacemakers determined by patient need. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Multiple: Kidneys have several functions which include: 1)excreting excess water and electrolytes your body does not need, 2) removing (uremic) toxins, 3) synthesizing hormones (such as erythropoietin). The kidney function is essential in maintaining blood pressure and acid/base balance of your body. ...Read more
Kidney Function: The kidneys make urine and excrete waste which is a sterile ultrafiltrate of blood by passing the blood through tight spiraling tubes in functional units called nephrons. Kidneys also regulate electrolyte balance and acid base through various transporters tubes and mechanisms. The associated adrenal gland has important neuroendocrine functionality including blood pressure control. Read ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Production of urine: The renal pyramid consists of renal tubules primarily the loop of henle and collecting ducts. As urine passes through these tubules it is more and more concentrated and certain electrolytes such as potassium, sodium, chloride etc are secreted or reabsorbed from or into these tubules to maintain precise concentration of these electrolytes in the blood. ...Read more
What is the purpose of dyalisis machine? Will dyalisis enhance the poor performance of the kidney? Thanks
Dialysis machine: The purpose of a dialysis machine (d) and the artificial kidney (a) used on it is to replace the function of the kidneys of a end stage renal disease kidney patient which do not work. The a filters the blood of the patient removing waste products and water the diseased kidneys of the patient cannot do. This prevents the patient dying of kidney failure. The d does not affect the patient's kidneys. ...Read more
Pericardium: We probably don't realize the complete function of pericardium but among others -- we know that pericardium plays a major role in the hemodynamics of the organs -- in this case the heart and the lungs, the fluid exchange and the intrathoracic pressure regulation pertaining to that internal organs -- ad mechanical protection to the heart against trauma, infection, and metastasis --. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Physiology: Angiotensin is converted from angiotensinogen and functions to help the body secrete aldosterone (which results in salt and water retention). Angiotensin i converts to angiotensin ii, and angiotensin ii has potent vasoconstrictor and proinflammatory effects on the vasculature. ...Read more
Digestion and : Absorption of food. Food reaches jejunum, the upper part of small intestine, in a state of partial processing by the enzymes from the stomach and duodenum. The digestion is completed and most of the nutrients are absorbed into the blood in the jejunum and some in the ileum, the lower part of small intestine. ...Read more
