Nursing assessment of urinary system

Ann Bonner

Research output: Book chapter/Published conference paperChapter


'Bones can break, muscles can atrophy, glands can loaf, even the brain can go to sleep without immediate danger to survival. But should the kidneys fail ... neither bone, muscle, gland, nor brain could carry on.'1 This statement underlines the importance of our kidneys to our lives. Adequate functioning of the kidneys is essential to the maintenance of a healthy body. If there is complete kidney failure and treatment is not given, death is inevitable.
