Blood pressure is discovered to be highest in the circulatory system at the location of the aorta (large arteries), which is directly connected to the ventricle of the heart, and lowest in the venous vessels. Blood can collect in the veins and serve as a reservoir of blood because of this. In order to pump blood back to the heart, veins have valves.
