taediggity  Totally agree, arterial dilation--> increases blood flow into capillaries/increases capillary hydrostatic pressure + increasing permeability of the post-capillary venules= Increased Capillary Filtration Rate +1  
makinallkindzofgainz  I love you explanation, but I don't think filtration rate is dependent upon permeability of the post-capillary venules. I think the filtration rate is increased simply due to the increased blood flow; this is similar to how increased renal blood flow will increase Glomerular Filtration Rate (GFR). +10

its_raining_jimbos  Not 100% sure on this one, but here’s how I approached it: histamine causes arterial dilation (decreased arteriolar resistance), but all of that blood has to go somewhere since you now have more blood flowing through the arteries and that somewhere is the capillaries (increased capillary hydrostatic pressure). Histamine causes increased permeability of the post-capillary venules (one of Dr. Sattar’s favorite facts) so you’d have increased capillary filtration rate. +

Histamine decreases arteriolar resistance, but I guess not capillary resistance.

ΔP = Q × R

In the arteriole, resistance decreases, so flow increases. In the capillary, resistance has not decreased, so the increased flow they receive translates to increased pressure and filtration.
