Blood flows throughout the body via blood vessels. These are the tubes that form a closed pipeline within the body. There are three types of vessels and this video discusses their structure and function.
This video considers blood pressure. When ventricles contract, they increase pressure on the blood. The resulting force that blood exerts against the artery walls is called blood pressure.
