The countercurrent* concentrating mechanism. Reptiles and amphibians are able to excrete nitrogen-based waste products via their kidneys, but are unable to concentrate urine. Concentration is the unique property of mammals and some birds by virtue of an extraordinary concentrating system. Its mechanism is counterintuitive and complex. A countercurrent mechanism system is a mechanism that expends energy to create a concentration gradient.. It is found widely in nature and especially in mammalian organs. For example, it can refer to the process that is underlying the process of urine concentration, that is, the production of hyperosmotic urine by the mammalian kidney. The ability to concentrate urine is also present in birds.

Countercurrent exchange is a mechanism occurring in nature and mimicked in industry and engineering, in which there is a crossover of some property, usually heat or some chemical, between two flowing bodies flowing in opposite directions to each other. The flowing bodies can be liquids, gases, or even solid powders, or any combination of those. For example, in a distillation column, the vapors.

Introduction. The Urinary System is a group of organs in the body concerned with filtering out excess fluid and other substances from the bloodstream. The substances are filtered out from the body in the form of is a liquid produced by the kidneys, collected in the bladder and excreted through the urethra. 9 Gottschalk CW and Mylle M.

Overview. One may divide the conceptual history of the concentrating mechanism into three periods. The first period ( to ) was inaugurated by a study by Kuhn and Ryffel [] that proposed that the production of a concentrated urine results from the countercurrent multiplication of a “single effect.”Kuhn and Ryffel [] constructed a working apparatus that exemplified the principles of Cited by: Disorders of the urinary concentrating mechanism vary widely in their clinical importance.

Urinary concentration is a function of the juxtamedullary nephrons with long loops of Henle that penetrate deep into the renal medulla. There are two main steps in this process. First, transport of sodium chloride without water from the ascending limb of Henle's loop renders the medullary interstitium.

No concept in renal physiology has been as revolutionary as the loop of Henle as a countercurrent system responsible for urine concentration. The idea was introduced in by Werner Kuhn, a Swiss physical chemist who had earlier worked on a countercurrent system for the purification of heavy water.

The important findings at the end of this first phase of the test consist of a 5% increase in serum osmolality to ensure maximal physiologic stimulation of vasopressin release, measurement of urine osmolality to assess the effect of dehydration on the urinary concentrating mechanism, and a plasma vasopressin level.

Urinary concentration requires a countercurrent multiplication process allowing the medullary interstitium to become progressively hypertonic and the osmotic equilibration of medullary collecting duct fluid with the hypertonic medullary interstitium.

From: Fetal and Neonatal Physiology (Fifth Edition),   This book, written jointly by an American physiologist and a German anatomist, presents a detailed account of the structure and function of the renal medulla, with particular emphasis on the manner in which the kidney elaborates a concentrated urine.

It is a scholarly book Author: George Dunea. Summary. The mechanism of the defect in urinary concentrating capacity in potassium deficiency was investigated by measuring solute-free water reabsorption ($$T_{{\text{H}}_{\text{2}} {\text{O}}}^{\text{C}}$$) in normal and hypokalemic rats undergoing mannitol potassium-deficiency markedly lowered glomerular filtration rate (GFR), \(T_{{\text{H}}_{\text{2}} {\text{O}}}^{\text{C Cited by: We then examine the mechanism of concentration and dilution of urine, the measurement of the ability of the kidney to concentrate urine, and finally the action of some selective diuretics and their potential therapeutic effects.

We begin with a comprehensive presentation Cited by: 6. The role of urea in the urine concentrating mechanism has been well- documented Earlier studies have reported that renal epithelial cells, MDCK and LLC-PK1, responded to hyperosmotic state.

The organ system that performs this function in humans—the urinary system—is the topic of this chapter. The organs of the urinary system are organs of excretion—they remove wastes and water from the body. Specifically, the urinary system “cleans the blood” of metabolic wastes, which are substances produced by the body that it cannot.

The mechanism by which urine is concentrated in the mammalian kidney remains incompletely understood.

Upper urinary tract infection refers to infection of the urinary tract above the level of the bladder; that is, the ureters, kidneys, and peri-renal tissues. This term is used mainly in reference to pyelonephritis.

“Upper UTI” also encompasses intrarenal abscess (“renal carbuncle”) and perinephric abscess. This is the mechanism responsible for concentrating solutes in the medullary interstitium.

--High solute concentration enables kidneys to excrete highly concentrated urine, conserve water during periods of. The bladder mechanism consists of the voluntary filling and voiding of the urinary bladder which is controlled by a combined action of the Pelvic Floor muscles (support for the bladder), the Detrusor (muscle surrounding the bladder walls), and the Urethral sphincters (muscles on the Urethra that act as valves for the bladder to be emptied).Carl William Gottschalk was born on Apin Salem, Virginia, to Lula Helbig and Carl Gottschalk.
