What an EMT should know about the genitourinary and renal structures for men.

EMT’s need to know about the reproductive organs of men just as much as they do women. While there are fewer genitourinary renal illnesses there are still problems that can arise like urinary tract infections, kidney stones, and kidney failure in men. For men the genitourinary/renal structures consist of the kidneys, ureter, bladder, and urethra. It’s purpose is to excrete water waste from the kidneys. These organs also play a role in homeostasis by regulating PH balance and electrolytes in the body, controlling blood volume and regulating blood pressure.
