Abstract : Equations are derived expressing the relationship between renal artery pressure and urine flow rate, using isolated kidneys. The results show that urine flow rate is directly proportional to renal artery pressure. The results also indicate that interstitial pressure is directly proportional to renal artery pressure. Further, the time constant of the interstitial pressure time response, to step changes in renal artery pressure, is smaller than the time constant of the urine flow rate time response, indicating that interstitial pressure may be a primary factor in determining urine flow rates.
