Renin-Angiotensin-Aldosterone System

In this short video I will cover everything you need to know in order to understand the inner-workings of the renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system. ¬†This is an overview of how the system works, but does not go into the in-depth pharmacology of the associated ACE inhibitors, which you’ll find on another video.

The Renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system is a system designed to recognize and correct low plasma volume, and in the production of angiotensin 2 it gains the ability to increase plasma volume in a number of important ways.

Enjoy!

I hope that clarified the steps involved in the production of aldosterone.

    this is an excellent service you’re providing. it will definitely help many students. i reccomend your students to take a free step 1 evaluation exam at http://www.usmlerescue.com before taking your step 1 prep course. it will help them figure out where their weaknesses lie.
