The blood plasma is about ___ % of the total body water.
8%
Atrial natriuretic factor is secreted in response to-

hyponatremia
hypernatremia
aldosterone
hypotension
hypertension
hypertension
Antidiuretic hormone-

-increases water and sodium reabsorption
-increases water reabsorption but not sodium
-increases urine output but not urine concentration
-increases the volume and concentration of urine
-reduces the glomerular filtration rate
increases water reabsorption but not sodium
Which of the following cations is most concentrated in the intracellular fluid?

K+
Na+
NH4+
Fe2+
Ca2+
K+
Which of the following conditions is likely to produce the highest daily output of sodium in the urine?

hypertension
a high level of aldosterone
a low level of atrial natriuetic factor
a high level of estrogen
a low level of progesterone
hypertension
The sense of thirst is satiated by all of the following mechanisms, but the one with the longest-lasting effect is-

-cooling of the mouth
-stretching of the stomach by ingested water
-a drop in blood osmolarity
-moistening of the mouth
-increased salvation
a drop in blood osmolarity
When the hypothalamic osmoreceptors detect a rise in blood osmolarity...

-the kidneys secrete renin
-the kidneys secrete aldosterone
-the adrenal cortex secretes aldosterone
-the posterior pituitary releases ADH
the heart secretes ANF
the posterior pituitary releases ADH
Aldosterone receptors are found on cells of-

the adrenal cortex
the adrenal medulla
the posterior pituitary
the proximal convoluted tubule
the distal convoluted tubule
the distal convoluted tubule
When the renal tubules secrete hydrogen ions into the tubular fluid, they ___ at the same time.

-secrete potassium
-secrete sodium
-reabsorb potassium
reabsorb sodium
-secrete chloride
reabsorb sodium
The pH of the intracellular fluid is buffered mainly by-
protein
A deficiency of potassium ions in the blood is called-
hypokalemia
The pH of systemic atrial blood is normally-

5.6
6.7
7.0
7.4
8.6
7.4
People who have lost a lot of blood often feel intensely thirsty. This is because-

- angiotensin II is produced and stimulates the thirst center
-the osmolarity of the remaining blood is elevated
-the hypothalamic osmoreceptors respond to falling blood pressure
-ADH is released and stimulates the thirst center
-the loss of plasma electrolytes stimulates the thirst center
angiotensin II is produced and stimulates the thirst center
The bicarbonate buffer system would not work very well in the human body if not for the action of the respiratory system, which-

-supplies the buffer system with CO2
-supplies the buffer system with O2
-expels HCO3 produced my the buffer system
-expels H+ produced my the buffer system
-expels CO2 produced my the buffer system
expels CO2 produced my the buffer system
The limiting pH is a value below which-

-human life cannot be maintained
-hydrogen ions cannot be secreted into the tubular fluid
-hydrogen ions cannot be reabsorbed from the tubular fluid
-the bicarbonate buffer system no longer works
-hydrogen ions must be buffered by ammonia
hydrogen ions cannot be secreted into the tubular fluid
The lymphatic system helps maintain fluid balance by-

-returning fluid from the interstitial compartment to the bloodstream
-transferring excess water from the bloodstream to the tissue fluid
-compensating for hypovolemia by releasing stored fluid to the tissues
-compensating for hypovolemia by absorbing and storing excess fluid
-maintaining equilibrium between fluid intake and output
returning fluid from the interstitial compartment to the bloodstream
Aldosterone has which of the following effects?

-increases Na+ and K+ reabsorption
-reduces Na+ and K+ reabsorption
-causes the urine to be more dilute
-reduces Na+ reabsorption and increases K+ reabsorption
-increases Na+ reabsorption and reduces K+ reabsorption
increases Na+ reabsorption and reduces K+ reabsorption
Increasing the K+ concentration of the extracellular fluid (ECF) will-

-cause more K+ to diffuse out of the cells into the ECF
-usually not affect the intracellular K+ concentration
-raise cell membrane potentials and make cells more excitable
-lower cell membrane potentials and make cells more excitable
-lower cell membrane potentials and make cells less excitable
raise cell membrane potentials and make cells more excitable
Because of the carbonic anhydrase on the brush borders of the kidney tubules,

-the kidneys eliminate almost as much CO2 as the lungs do
-the urine is normally free of bicarbonate ions
-the urine contains a high concentration of bicarbonate ions
-bicarbonate ions are rapidly reabsorbed by the kidney tubules
- the pH of the urine is normally slightly basic
the urine is normally free of bicarbonate ions
An antiport system on the brush borders of the kidney tubules-

-transports bicarbonate from the tubular fluid back into the tubule cells
-transports H+ in both directions across the epithelium
-transports CO2 from the blood into the tubular fluid
-exchanges H+ for Na+
-exchanges K+ for Na+
exchanges H+ for Na+
If a person's urine has an unusually high concentration of ammonium chloride, we would suspect that the person has-

-Addison's disease
-acidosis

At a normal pH, the extracellular fluid is about-

-a 20:1 ratio of bicarbonate ions to carbonic acid
- a 20:1 ratio of carbonic acid to bicarbonate ions
-a 1:1 ratio of hydrogen ions to bicarbonate ions
-a 20:1 ratio of hydrogen ions to hydroxyl ions
-a 20:1 ratio of hydroxyl ions to hydrogen ions
a 20:1 ratio of bicarbonate ions to carbonic acid
