If you wanted ONLY to increase the volume of the ECF, what type of fluid would you administer? Give an example?
If you want to increase the volume of both the ECF and ICF, and it is acceptable for the ECF to decrease in osmolality, what type of solution would you administer?

Aside from the afferent and efferent arterioles, what are the other components of the juxtaglomerular apparatus?
True or false: the juxtaglomerular apparatus is important in controlling both systemic and local vascular resistance, but individual nephrons have no ability to regulate their GFR.

True or false: the ultrafiltration coefficient may be altered by the contraction of mesangial cells in response to calcitonin and angiotensin I

Which of the following is not a vasoconstrictor of renal vessels? Renin-angiotensin-aldosterone, ANF, Endothelin
The two outcomes of sympathetic stimulation on renal vessels are:
Fill in the blanks: Renin, released by the ___ ____, converts angiotensinogen, released by the ____, into angiotensin I, which is then converted by ____ into angiotensin II.
Which of the following is not an effect of Angiotensin II? Increased reabsorption of Na+, Cl- and K+, increased aldosterone secretion, arteriolar vasoconstriction or increased ADH
True or false: the macula densa secretes unknown paracrine factors which can decrease the GFR by causing the afferent arteriole to constrict?
What is the term for the rate at which a substance is cleared from plasma?
V x Ux/ Px=? 
What substance can be used to ascertain GFR from its clerance, because it is neither secreted nor reabsorbed?
True or false: due to slight tubular secretion, creatinine leads to a slight underestimation of GFR if you calculate clearance?
