The Nephron in Numbers: A Video of Renal Clearance

This video illustrates the complex Physiological concept of Renal Clearance through custom-designed animations, graphs, and problem sets. Topics in the video include: -A comparison of the nephron handling of three different substances: glucose, inulin, and para-aminohippuric acid (PAH) -The typical urine/plasma (U/P) ratios for these substances at both low and high plasma concentrations -How to calculate the renal clearance of a substance using the urine concentration, plasma concentration, and urine flow rate -How to mathematically and graphically represent the relative inulin U/P ratio. -How to use the results of the relative inulin U/P ratio to determine if a substance is undergoing net secretion or reabsorption
