Request Description

How would the following affect the glomerular filtration rate (GFR) and net filtration pressure (NFP): (a) inflammation of the glomerular membrane, (b) constriction of the proximal convoluted tubule, and (c) hemorrhage?

 

Compare autoregulation, neural regulation, and hormonal regulation of renal blood flow.

Solution Description

 

Glomerular Filtration Rate (GFR)  is a process by kidneys filter the blood by removing excess wastes and fluids .GFR is the rate of blood passing through the glomeruli of nephron of both kidneys  each minute which is measured by the rate of clearance of serum creatinine, insulin and blood urea nitrogen level.

GFR test is recommended for finding the stage of chronic kidney disease. It depends on weight, height, sex, age and serum creatinine levels of a person (Physiology at MCG 7/7ch04/7ch04p11 - "Glomerular Filtration Rate").

 

 

Net Filtration Pressure is the force of blood passing through the glomeruli of the kidney.
This net pressure is the combination of three other pressures
