N2 - Systolic dysfunction of the heart represents a state of 'pre-renal' azotemia, in which the excess of total body salt and water is redistributed to venous and interstitial fluid compartments. This results in a diminished effective circulating blood volume and thereby decreases tissue perfusion. The kidneys perceive the ineffective circulating volume and employ a complex series of interconnected hemodynamic and neurohumoral effector mechanisms to restore 'adequate' perfusion. This is done by reclaiming a greater fraction of filtered sodium and water and elevating systemic vascular resistance to keep perfusion pressure to vital organs constant despite diminished cardiac output.
