Dialysis..


" The table below shows the concentration of various solutes in dialysis fluid and in the blood plasma of the person with kidney faliure at the start of Dialysis:


Blood Plasma:
Sodium ions: 23
Glucose: 56
Urea: 129
Protein: 73

Dialysis fluid:
Sodium: 17
Glucose: 56
Urea: 0
Protein: 0


Well I know Protein is too large to pass through the membrane and Dialysis maintains the concentration of Urea but my question for my Homework is asking for two advantages based on the data above :/ only other thing I could think of was the concentration of sodium ion is much less than in the blood but other than that nope, minds blank, I'm wondering if its anything else...



IGCSE Human Biology.

Dialysis..
1) We live in the 21st Century, Google is a thing.
2) Is it really that tricky to consider what the benefits of a small internal organ are over a large, stationary medical machine?

Yes I'm dumb
I just typed in "advantages of kidney transplants over dialysis machines" into Google and the very first result discusses the advantages and disadvantages. How hard are you actually trying?

Oh crap I've just realised, I didn't put in the extra information..

Right for my Homework There's two tables:

" The table below shows the concentration of various solutes in dialysis fluid and in the blood plasma of the person with kidney faliure at the start of Dialysis:


Blood Plasma:
Sodium ions: 23
Glucose: 56
Urea: 129

Dialysis fluid:
Sodium: 17
Glucose: 56
Urea: 0
Protein: 0


Well I know Protein is too large to pass through the membrane and Dialysis maintains the concentration of Urea but my question for my Homework is asking for two advantages based on the data above :/ ( only other thing I could think of was the concentration of sodium ion is much less than in the blood but other than that nope, minds blank, I'm wondering if its anything else, Should I just search on google for the advantages and pick out two then ? ... I'm dumb I told you

Ah, that changes things a lot. It's been a while since I've done anything like that, so I don't know if I can be much help. I take back my earlier comment and apologise for being dismissive.

It's my fault for not putting the extra information in! Apology accepted, I guess, been searching on Google but nothing :/

I don't understand the question, two advantages of a transplant over dialysis based on the figures above? You need more information about their immune systems ability to cope with suppression, feasibility of transplant etc.

Although, dialysis fluid needs more than the above, usually it contains important calcium and potassium.

Well that's the question and it just says based on the data above state two advantages....

This is IGCSE Human Biology


In my IGCSE Human Biology course it hasn't stated that there's calcium and potassium...


Remember i'm only on IGCSE Level not A-Level or whatever

We didn't cover this stuff until A Level, so I can't really help you then.
