Calculator Calculation of GFR!


During an experiment, the following data were obtained from an anesthetized dog: mean glomerular capillary hydrostatic pressure – 45, mean Bowman space hydrostatic pressure – 12, mean glomerular capillary oncotic pressure – 23, mean Bowman space oncotic pressure – 0, coefficient of filtration (Kf) – 3, renal blood flow – 200, Hct – 40%. Which of the following best represents the glomerular filtration rate in this animal?
(a) 30 (b) 50 (c) 90 (d) 120 (e) 180
