Description:

Medical students are faced with a challenge to comprehend the enormous complexity of our circulatory systems. There is a gap between courses of anatomy, with detailed description of all normally present macroscopic vessels, and histology, which is focused on microscopic tissue architecture. Both courses leave arterioles, capillaries, and venules almost marginal and are not used to consider the hydrostatic pressure changes that continuously alter tissue perfusion. Often this knowledge gap is left for teachers of medical physiology. It is typically addressed during teaching about blood volumes in different circulatory segments, as a good occasion to explain the complex structure of the entire circulatory system.
