Feedback mechanisms: Many things impact bp. Neural stimuli and catecholamine release impact on heart rate and vasoconstriction. Renal blood flow and kidney function control internal fluid and salt regulation, as well as having an influence on hormonal activity and feedback on the nervous system. All of this helps regulate bp.
