Precipitating Factors -excesive intake of calcium/hyperclcemia -decreased intake of water. Nephrolithiasis Predisposing Factors -male -family history of renal disease Saturation of urine Decreased urinary flow May produce excess amounts of mucoprotein in the bladder Allowing crystallites to be deposited and trapped forming calculi or stones Urine (upon voiding) moves tiny stones to the ureter Large stones tiny stones
Large stones Tiny stones Blocks the ureter Becomes nidus for bacteria Causes spasm Decreased urine output Injures the wall of the ureter UTI Increased WBC count Painful urination Blood combines with urine/hematuria Decreased hgb count Makes urine turbidity cloudy
VII. Nursing Diagnosis and Care Plans Nursing Diagnosis according to priority of care: • Acute pain related to ureteral contractions secondary to stones in the kidney. • Hyperthermia related to infection process. • Fluid volume excess related to compromised regulatory mechanism.
• Altered urinary elimination related to mechanical obstruction. • Altered nutrition less than body requirements related to nausea and vomiting. • Risk for decreased cardiac output related to severe acidosis. • Risk for infection related to invasive procedures. (Urinary catheter, CVP insertion.)
• Risk for injury related to decreased RBC production. • Risk for impaired skin integrity related to edema. ( 2+) • Knowledge deficit regarding condition related to information misinterpretation

Fresh Insight on Effective Drug Treatments for Kidney Stones New research by scientists at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis shows evidence to explain why some people are more prone to develop kidney stones than others
When claudin-14 is idled, the kidney's filtering system works like it's supposed to. Essential minerals in the blood like calcium and magnesium pass through the kidneys and are reabsorbed back into the blood, where they are transported to cells to carry out basic functions of life. But when people eat a diet high in calcium or salt and don't drink enough water, the small RNA molecules release their hold on claudin 14. An increase in the gene's activity prevents calcium from re-entering the blood, the study shows.
