Furthermore, the oxygen tension of blood in the vasa recta is very low. This is the case for two reasons. First, the blood has already passed through a capillary bed (the glomerulus). Second, the countercurrent exchange mechanism that operates in the medulla results in a progressive fall in oxygen tension from the cortex to the inner medulla. 12 Structure of the kidney. The kidney is composed of an outer cortex and an inner medulla. The functional unit of the kidney is the nephron, of which there are two types: cortical (not shown) and juxtamedullary.

11 Distribution of blood flow to the lungs. The lung is divided into three West zones (after the physiologist John B. West), based on the relative differences in the pulmonary arterial, pulmonary venous, and alveolar pressures. In West zone 3, pulmonary arterial and venous pressures exceed alveolar pressure, and blood flow is determined by the arterial-venous pressure difference. In West zone 2, pulmonary arterial pressure, but not pulmonary venous pressure, exceeds alveolar pressure, and blood flow is determined by the arterial-alveolar pressure difference.

Decreased delivery of solute to the distal tubule (due to reduced GFR) is sensed by the macula densa, which results in the dilation of the afferent arteriole and the release of renin from the juxtaglomerular cells. Renin leads to the production of angiotensin II, which causes selective constriction of the efferent arteriole. Afferent arteriolar vasodilation results in an increase in renal blood flow which, in combination with efferent vasoconstriction, increases glomerular capillary pressure and restores GFR.
