The relationship between fluid filtration rate (FFR) and plasma colloid osmotic pressure (COP) was studied in isolated rabbit lungs perfused at constant flow. A 50% to 60% decrease in COP increased FFR more when left atrial pressure (LAP) was 12.8 to 15 mm Hg than when it was 7.5 to 9 mm Hg. When LAP was zero, FFR did not increase until COP had been reduced from 18.8 to 7 mm Hg. The increase in FFR produced by step increases in LAP was eliminated by similar increases in COP.
