Kidney, Heart, Aorta and vessels Locations. There are two kidneys, each about the size of a fist, located on either side of the spine at the lowest level of the rib cage. Each kidney contains up to a million functioning units called nephrons. A nephron consists of a filtering unit of tiny blood vessels called a glomerulus, attached to a tubule. When blood enters the glomerulus, it is filtered and the remaining fluid then passes along the tubule. In the tubule, chemicals and water are either added to or removed from this filtered fluid according to the body's needs, the final product being the urine we excrete. The kidneys perform their life-sustaining job of filtering and returning to the bloodstream about 200 quarts of fluid every 24 hours. About two quarts are removed from the body in the form of urine, and about 198 quarts are recovered. The urine we excrete has been stored in the bladder for anywhere from 1 to 8 hours.

Accurately depicts the anatomy and physiology of the kidney. Labels include kidneys, renal arteries and veins, abdominal aorta, ureters, bladder and urethra. Shows enlargement of the kidney showing fresh blood flowing in through the arteries through the hilum, entering the renal corte, and old blood flowing out. The final two illustrations display an enlarged view of the kidney tissue with an inset of the nephron, the functional unit of the kidney. May be customized by editing labels, or by combining artwork with graphics from our 15,000 image library.
