STEVE KUIJPERS, RN

Clear point-by-point rundown pf renal failure. However, the osmolarity of the urine in pre-renal and renal failure respectively may need a more detailed explanation. One would expect te osmolarity of the urine in a pre-renal to go DOWN, since urine osmolality is calculated on the basis of {2x [Na] } + K + [urea] + [Glucose]... If osmolarity goes up instead, could this mean that relatively more water is reabsorbed due to ADH activity causing the concentration of solutes to go UP (which we know for fact)? at one point, osmolarity is confused with SG (1.010).

Excellent but different groups need different depth of presented topics. You can probably create different programs for future exam takers,medical students, doctors taking Board Exam or Recertification,etc. The quality is great. Excellent speaker with very well spoken English.

Content was well presented and thorough. My paramedic class is covering renal physiology and emergencies, so this was a perfect explanation to reinforce and build on what we've already talked about.

GREG JONES

LYDIA LAGG

I am a premed student taking A&P. I thought that this would be a little harder to follow because I thought it was aimed at med students but surprisingly it wasn't! A lot of things were repeated throughout the lectures that really reinforced the topic. I am also a very visual learner and often incorporate illustrations in my notes so the colorful drawings really appealed to me. Overall a highly recommended lecture. Excellent work, Doc!

AHMED ALYAN, MD

JOHN EFUNBOADE, MD

WILLIAM WANG

Overall a great lecture. I have a question though. I looked up Harrison and found that NSAIDs and ACEI are categorized as prerenal renal failure. (According to Harrison, NSAIDs cause loss of vasodilatory prostaglandins, which in turn increases afferent resistance. ACEI causes loss of angiotensin II action, which reduces efferent resistance. Both decreases GFR.)
