The volume of blood flowing through capillaries. It varies with weight, so a person with a larger weight will have more blood circulating in the lungs.
The maximum oxygen tension (O 2 ) which can be stored in tissue tissue and in red blood cells. O 2 is present primarily for metabolism and as a fuel for the cardiovascular system. Blood flow is measured by means of a pulsemeter, and can therefore be used for calculating heart rate, pulse, and respiration rate.
The blood pressure (BP) or rate of flow (RP) is the maximum amount of blood which can flow through the vessels at any given moment, expressed in millimeters of mercury (mmHg). The term usually means the maximum size (expressed in mmHg) and flow which can be carried at any given volume (mmHg) at any given point in the blood vessel and the maximum flow rate, in percent per unit time.
The flow rate (RP/Hb), is the measured volume of blood which passes (beats and beats per minute) past each capillary at any given point in the artery while the arterial blood supply is still supplying the whole body.
Capillaries, small blood vessels that form between blood vessel walls, are the arteries in the capillaries. The capillary is the largest artery and, like the carotid artery, it consists of a main artery that runs from the wall of the heart and then down into the capillaries along the length of the capillary. Each capillary is a continuous wall of blood vessels which are separated from each other by tiny and relatively narrow ducts called capillary endothelia.
Some blood vessels that cross the blood vessel walls are called interventional capillaries, as they pass along internal arteries at some point between the walls of the blood vessels. Other blood vessels (noninterventional) have no interventional blood vessel at all but continue to travel along the outer wall of the arterial blood vessels. Such blood vessels do not connect to the capillary arterioles. In such cases, the flow of venous blood through such blood vessel walls is not regulated. The capillary walls of these blood vessels are filled to a limited volume (less than one millimeter of blood can pass through these in any given minute by the blood vessels).
All blood vessels except the carotid contain interventional capillaries.
Blood vessels in the legs, for example, also contain intra-abdominal capillary endothelia. These can drain from the abdomen when injured or if the legs are bent outwards while standing.
Most of the capillaries in our necks flow through the abdominal cavity. Most of the blood supply to the cervical spine comes from the veins of the neck and other parts
Blood Pressure is typically measured before and after strenuous exercise.
