I love NephSAP. It is the greatest life long education product that I use. In my mind, it is the crown jewel of an ASN membership. Thank-you Bob Narins.
We have embedded it into our fellowship curriculum. When I do the questions I get blown away. They are really hard. I have to go searching hard to answer them. I figure I’d get aroound 50% without access to Dr. Google and the Preview Search box. The only exception is the fluid and electrolyte issues. I can handle those pretty well. This month’s NephSAP I nailed with only two misses. One of those misses annoys me. Here is the question:
A sodium bicarbonate infusion would not only correct the hypovolemia, but would enhance lumen electronegativity in the cortical collecting, thereby facilitating potassium secretion.
