Methods for the Assessment of the Effects of Drugs on the Arterial System in Man
The arterial system is an anatomical entity which serves a number of circulatory functions. Therefore if we wish to describe the effects of drugs on the system it is first necessary to define the precise functions we are concerned with and devise methods which are appropriate for their measurement. The arterial system has four main functions.
