Hydrostatic Pressure

The physical force exerted by a liquid against a surface

Flow of Blood through the Pulmonary Circuit

Pulmonary trunk, pulmonary arteries, lobar arteries, alveolar capillaries, pulmonary veins, left atrium

Brachiocephalic trunk

Branches into the right subclavian artery and the right common carotid artery

Orthostatic Hypotension

Results from a decrease in blood pressure that results when one stands


A pattern of blood flow in the arteries where it surges with the heart beat


The main chemical stimulus for cerebral autoregulation


Contribute to vessel growth and repair by retaining the ability to differentiate into endothelial and smooth muscle cells
