Modeling the Steady-State Effects of Mean Arterial Pressure on the Kidneys
Goal: We describe the relationship between mean arterial pressure (MAP) and glomerular filtration rate (GFR) since therapies affecting MAP can have large effects on kidney function. Methods: We developed a closed-loop, steady-state mechanistic model of the human kidney with a... Read more
