In the human circulatory system: q = (map – rap)/tpr (map = mean aortic (or arterial) blood pressure in mmhg, RAP = mean right atrial pressure in mmhg and tpr = total peripheral resistance in dynes-sec-cm-5.) however, as map>>rap, , this can be simplified to: q~map/tpr. Map is obviously affected by htn. ...Read more
