Vasomotor Control and the Regulation of Blood Pressure

  • Alfred P. Fishman
  • Dickinson W. Richards


The vascular system is the great transport mechanism of the body. It serves as the link between the tissue fluid bathing the cells and the external environment. For the vascular system to fulfill its purpose, the blood supply to the tissues must be adapted to their metabolic needs. This flexibility is accomplished by changes in vascular caliber and in the output of the heart.
