What is the connection between renal function and hypotension?

What is the connection between renal function and hypotension?

Hypotn decreares fxn: Low blood presure to the kidneys causes the kidneys to malfuntion. The kidneys need a large blood volume with an adequate pressure to perfuse and function properly. When the BP is low the kidneys hold on to fluids and urine out put drops. The BUN and cr are elevated indicating a back up of waste and when it goes on longperiod of time its called atn or acute tubular necrosis. If no relief dialysis. ...Read more

What is the relationship between mosaic perfusion and ascites?

Not sure that there : Is a direct relationship. Mosaic perfusion is a pattern of vessels in the lung associated with pulmonary hypertension and other pulmonary vascular disease. Pulmonary hypertension could lead to right heart failure and then ascites. I really am unable to find a direct connection between this finding on high resolution ct and ascites. Perhaps a radiologist might have a different idea. ...Read more

What is the relationship between hypertension and cardiac output?

What is the relationship between hypertension and cardiac output?

Mathematical: The relationship can be expressed as a variant of darcy' law; flow (q) = pressure/resistance. In the human circulatory system: q = (map – rap)/tpr (map = mean aortic (or arterial) blood pressure in mmhg, RAP = mean right atrial pressure in mmhg and tpr = total peripheral resistance in dynes-sec-cm-5.) however, as map>>rap, , this can be simplified to: q~map/tpr. Map is obviously affected by htn. ...Read more

If duration and degree of the mentioned conditions last and/or worsen, microscopic change in severe damage (necrosis) fine kidney filtrating tubules ensue - ATN. ...Read more
