HPR 205 Week 5 Lab

Ashford 6: – Week 5 – Laboratory

 

Renal System
Log in to eScienceLabs to review the urinary system via animations and pre-lab readings for the exercise. The animations will address the anatomy of the urinary, also known as renal system, the structure of the kidney, the vascular system associated with the kidney, and blood pressure. The pre-lab readings will reinforce the anatomy and physiology of the urinary system as well as how blood pressure impacts the function of the kidneys, and how the function of the kidneys impacts a person’s blood pressure.
At the conclusion of this lab exercise, you will understand and be able to use normal urinary analysis findings to make a diagnosis based on urinalysis data and other findings provided in multiple scenarios. Additionally, you will learn how urine indicates overall hydration, health problems that can be identified through urine color, and why taking a regular urinalysis is important in pregnant women. Answer the questions on the respective Lab Report form.
For this Assignment you must:

  • Complete tables two through      five.
  • Answer questions one through      six on the respective Lab Report form.

Your assignment must be formatted according to APA guidelines as outlined in the Ashford Writing Center.
Carefully review the Grading Rubric for the criteria that will be used to evaluate your assignment.

Post-Lab Questions:

1. How can a patient’s hydration status be measured by urine color?

2. Research ketonuria. What is this disease? How does it occur, and can it be treated?

3. Why doesn’t healthy urine contain any glucose?

4. When are ketones produced? Why might this lead to a diagnosis of starvation or fasting?

5. What does a red or smoky brown urine color indicate?

6. What is the purpose of performing a urine test on a pregnant woman? What are the potential findings and causes for those findings?
