Why if we have decreased pressure (due to decreased TPR) it will cause problems like: syncope, low perfusion of tissues and etc? I really want to UNDERSTAND the importance of blood pressure in this situation (in the cases of low TPR=>high CO, low MAP). This my... Why does Blood pressure important in low TPR?
