    Transcript

    00:00 So let's wrap up this video series.

    00:03 We know the big overarching concept of kidneys is that they filter the blood, remove waste and extra water and make urine.

    00:11 Now nurses are accountable to understand when there's an increased risk for acute kidney injury also known as acute renal failure remember that's the older term, and watch for the signs and symptoms of chronic renal disease.

    00:24 Monitoring and screening of a patient's kidney function will help us identify problems earlier, So the whole team can allow for interventions that will slow the progression of kidney disease.

    00:35 Now the major lab tests that we use to assess kidney function include BUN, serum creatinine, estimating the GFR from the serum creatinine and a full urinalysis including examination of the sediment.

    00:49 Thank you for watching our video today.
