Renal Replacement Therapy: Hemodialysis vs Peritoneal Dialysis, Animation

Renal Replacement Therapy: Hemodialysis vs Peritoneal Dialysis, Animation

Dialysis is a therapy that artificially removes wastes from the blood of patients whose kidneys can no longer perform this function adequately. There are two main types of dialysis: hemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis. In hemodialysis, blood is filtered outside the body, in a dialysis machine. The patient’s blood is pumped to the machine, cleansed, then […]

Acute Kidney Injury, a.k.a. Acute Renal Failure, Animation

Acute kidney injury, AKI, also known as acute renal failure, is a sudden, rapid loss of kidney function, typically within days or weeks. The function of the kidneys is to filter blood plasma, removing metabolic wastes in urine, while also adjusting urine composition to maintain balance of various blood parameters. In AKI, metabolic wastes accumulate; […]

Meet a Biomedical Engineer: LifeWorks

My name is Chris Stanley. I’m a Biomedical Engineer at the National Institutes of Health. We are studying engineering and applying engineering principles to the human body. In our lab the primary patient population is cerebral palsy so we see both children and adults in our lab. And we’re trying to quantify how they move. […]

Acid Base Balance: Bicarbonate Ion Buffer

Acid Base Balance: Bicarbonate Ion Buffer

Let’s learn about the bicarbonate buffer system. Blood is maintained at a narrow range of pH. Which is between 7.35 and 7.45. Serious problems result from blood that is too acidic or alkaline. Abnormal pH can lead to coma and death. One of the ways by which the body maintains the blood pH is through […]

Kidney Anatomy and Blood

– [Voiceover] Here we have a model showing a kidney on left. The center is gonna be a renal lobe which is a cortical tissue with its associated pyramid. On the right is gonna be a blown-up view of a renal corpuscle. So let’s start with the kidney on the left. What you can see […]

Blood Supply to the Kidneys – 3D Anatomy Tutorial

Blood Supply to the Kidneys – 3D Anatomy Tutorial

So the blood supply to the kidneys is by the renal arteries and veins. It’s supplied by the renal artery and drained by the renal vein. So what we’re looking at here is the abdominal aorta and we’ve got the inferior vena cava. You can see the renal arteries coming off the abdominal aorta just […]

The Excretory System: From Your Heart to the Toilet – CrashCourse Biology #29

One of the coolest and most important things that our bodies do is maintain this thing called homeostasis, the regulation of a stable internal environment, no matter where we are or what we’re doing. After all, we put our bodies through a lot every single day: We’re always adding food and liquid and chemicals, and […]

Biomechanical Dysfunction and its Impact on Injuries Hi. My name is Gadi Kaufman. I’m a certified neuromuscular therapist, specialized in Strain-Counterstrain technique. This video is for people who like to work out, run, dance, etcetera. They eat well, have good diets, and think they have a good lifestyle, but they still complain about pain, especially […]

PRP Therapy Animation

Platelet-rich plasma therapy, or PRP therapy, is a non-surgical treatment for tendon, ligament and muscle injuries. Platelets are cells of the blood and are best known for their function in blood clotting. Activated platelets also release many growth factors and other cellular signaling proteins that are necessary for the process of wound healing. Platelet-rich plasma, […]
