Important factors in the maintenance of normal blood pressure

What are the most important factors in the maintenance of normal blood pressure?

  • Blood volume
  • Vascular reflexes (e.g., reflex arteriolar-venous constriction, baroreflex-induced tachycardia)
  • Hormonal mechanisms (e.g., increased plasma catecholamines, renin–angiotensin–aldosterone system, arginine, vasopressin, atrial natriuretic factor)
