7.2 –FILTRATION, REABSORPTION, AND
7.2.1 – Filtration
Describe the overall processes of filtration, reabsorption, secretion,
Explain what the
Glomerular Filtration Rate (GFR)
What is the normal GFR range?
How does blood pressure change the GFR?
Describe how autoregulation of the afferent and efferent arterioles
work to maintain the proper pressure in the Glomerulus.
own diagram to show this process.
What would happen to pressure in the glomerulus if you
dilated the afferent arteriole and constricted the efferent arteriole?
Describe how Net Filtration Pressure (NFP) is calculated.
the different forces or pressures influencing the NFP and what influences
