Increased hydrostatic pressure decreases filtration rate
Increases glycolysis and glycogen synthesis (more glucose in cells and need something to do with it)
Increases metabolism, stimulates protein synthesis everywhere
Tricuspid (right), mitral/bicuspid (left), pulmonic, aortic
Stimulates bone marrow to produce more RBCs to increase O2 carrying capacity, released by kidneys
