Pulmonary arterial pressure is generated by the right ventricle ejecting blood into the pulmonary circulation, which acts as a resistance to the output from the right ventricle. With each ejection of blood during ventricular systole, the pulmonary arterial blood volume increases, which stretches the wall of the artery. As the heart relaxes (ventricular diastole), blood continues to flow from the pulmonary artery into the pulmonary circulation. The smaller arteries and arterioles serve as the chief resistance vessels, and through changes in their diameter, regulate pulmonary vascular resistance.
Cardiovascular Relating to the circulatory system, which comprises the heart and blood vessels and carries nutrients and oxygen to the tissues of the body and removes carbon dioxide and other wastes from them. Cardiovascular diseases are conditions that affect the heart and blood vessels and include arteriosclerosis, coronary artery disease, heart valve disease, arrhythmia, heart failure, hypertension, orthostatic hypotension, shock, endocarditis, diseases of the aorta and its branches, disorders of the peripheral vascular system, and congenital heart disease.
Open-access journals in cardiovascular science are scholarly journals that are available online to the reader "without financial, legal, or technical barriers other than those inseparable from gaining access to the internet itself. Advantages and disadvantages of cardiovascular science open-access journals are the subjects of much discussion amongst scholars and publishers. Reactions of existing publishers to cardiovascular science open-access journal publishing have ranged from moving with enthusiasm to a new open-access business model, to experiments with providing as much free or open access as possible, to active lobbying against open-access proposals. A few obvious advantages of cardiovascular science open-access journals include the free access to scientific papers regardless of affiliation with a subscribing library, lower costs for research in academia and industry, in addition to improved access for the general public and higher citation rates for the author. Cardiovascular science is a journal dedicated to producing analysis, insight and data relating to questions of importance in understanding the fields of cardiovascular science. Cardiovascular science journal from omics group are an open access journal named as cardiovascular science which strives to release issues quarterly and is adamant to publish new findings related to the field of cardiovascular science. The mission of the cardiovascular science uses provides a forum for publishing new findings on cardiovascular science.
