The nurse is assessing a patient with chronic renal failure (CRF). Which assessment finding would the nurse look for?
• Uremia is the build-up of nitrogenous waste products due to the kidneys' inability to excrete.
• Acidosis is more likely to develop than alkalosis due to the kidneys' inability to excrete hydrogen.
• Anemia compared to polycythemia would result because of the diminished production of erythropoietin.
