Course topics include:

  • Renal and Endocrine Anatomy and Physiology
  • Electrolyte Imbalance
  • Fluid Deficit and Excess
  • Managing Fluid and Electrolytes in patients with:
    • Diabetic ketoacidosis
    • Cerebral salt wasting
    • Diabetes Insipidus
    • Syndrome of Inappropriate Antidiuretic Hormone

On completion of the course, you should be able to:

  • Describe the normal anatomy and physiology of the renal system
  • Describe functions of the endocrine and exocrine glands
  • Define the management strategies for sodium and potassium imbalance
  • Define the management strategies for calcium, phosphorus and magnesium imbalance
  • Define the signs and symptoms of too much or too little antidiuretic hormone
