Student doctor, please pause the tape and summarize what we’ve discussed about renal failure.

Uremia, one possible cause of renal failure is characterized by increased creatinine and blood urea nitrogen. Sodium and water retention can result in pulmonary edema and congestive heart failure. Metabolic acidosis is due to reduced acid excretion and buffer production. Anemia is due a lack of erythropoietin production and renal osteodystrophy is due to a lack of vitamin D. Hyperkalemia may cause cardiac arrhythmias. All of these things are possible causes of renal failure.
