Acute cold weather conditions are associated with an increase in vascular resistance, coronary vasospasm, blood pressure and homeostasis.
The actual increase in arterial blood pressure is caused by an increase in systemic vascular resistance (SVR).
During the study, the research team found that lead exposure was associated with an increase in vascular resistance when the children worked on a stressful computer task.
Arterial blood pressure (BP) and heart rate (HR) were also measured, and an index of coronary vascular resistance (CVR) was calculated as diastolic BP/CBV.
They then address the fluid mechanics of blood flow at the arterial level, discussing the rheological behavior of blood, steady flow models of vascular resistance, models of unsteady and pulsatile flow, the relationship between flow-induced stresses and the initiation and growth of athersclerosis, and flow through native heart valves and cardiac chambers, among other topics.
