Description

This lecture will cover the utility of measuring urine electrolytes including a physiology based discussion of what diseases they can be helpful in diagnosis and how they can be used in critical care.

Objectives

Understand free water handling in the kidney
The presence of antidiuretic hormone in the distal tubule causes free water resorption. It is secreted in various physiologic and pathophysiologic situations
Know how to determine free water handling in the kidney by using urine electrolytes
This lecture reviews this topic in depth.
Know how to determine if the kidney is the source of hypo or hyperkalemia
The transtubular potassium gradient is essential to determine this and the lecture will review its calculation and how to interpret the value.
