factors affecting blood pressure vasoconstriction (smaller pipes more pressure), hemocrit (how many rbc you have, and viscosity, thicker blood pressure goes up harder to push), vessel length, more fat means more tissue to service (pressure goes up)
short term bp regulation Nerves responsible, baroreceptors in neck say we need more blood, (sympathetic response), brain gets epinephrine to heart, heart beats like crazy
