The Vascular System of the Kidneys
Learners play a vascular system "game" to identify the arteries, capillaries, and veins that make up the renal blood supply pathway. A score is given at the end of the activity.
Learners read about the role of water, the basic physiology of water balance, and the effects of dehydration particularly on elderly clients. Tips for maintaining proper hydration are presented. In an interactive exercise, students calculate how much fluid a client needs based on his/her age, health, and weight.
