Video resource: Control of GFR:
Describe how Net Filtration Pressure (NFP) is calculated.
the different forces or pressures influencing the NFP and what influences
OPg: Oncotic Pressure (or Blood Colloidal Osmotic Pressure):
another inward force drawing fluid back into the blood, created by
proteins in the capillaries
HPc: Hydrostatic Pressure of Filtrate in Capsule:
The inward pressure
that counter acts the outward pressure.
Net filtration pressure = HPg – (HPc+OPg) or outward – the inward
