COMMENTS

Normal blood flow in the pulmonary capillaries are subject to a variety of influences. The mean hydrostatic intravascular pressure in the pulmonary artery is approximately 14 mmHg. The transmural vascular pressure is the intravascular pressure minus the intrapleural pressure in the larger vessels. Pressure in the pulmonary circulation is significantly influenced by gravity.
