The cardiovascular system is composed of a muscular pump and a distribution network of arteries, veins, and capillaries. Within this integrated system, it is the responsibility of resistance arteries to regulate tissue perfusion. To effectively control the magnitude and distribution of organ blood flow, resistance arteries respond to a range of mechanical… CONTINUE READING
