Medical Term:

urea clearance


Definition: the volume of plasma (or blood) that would be completely cleared of urea by 1 minute's excretion of urine; originally calculated as urine flow multiplied by urine urea concentration divided by concentration of urea in whole blood rather than plasma, representing blood urea clearance rather than plasma urea clearance.
