Assessment of the Geriatric Patient: Renal System (Nursing)

Assessment of the Geriatric Patient: Renal System (Nursing)

by Prof. Lawes

Among the important physiologic changes experienced by geriatric patients are changes in renal function. Such changes have numerous effects on patients’ daily lives, as the renal system does much more than produce urine. In this course, you’ll learn about structural and functional changes to the renal system, changes in hormonal regulation, and changes to the renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system and blood pressure.

You’ll also learn how to assess renal changes in geriatric patients, discuss nephrotoxic medications, and review basic renal physiology.
